Hi, I found this.

And to make the fondant shine, rub some shortening all over the cake.

You have to be careful with shortening on fondant, as it will become a part of the fondant and can melt it or make it less stable. I know it isnt convenient but the easiest way to get a sheen finished look is to either airbrush with a mixture of vodka and luster dust or paint a little of that on. If painting, go easy on it. The idea is not to have too much excess moisture. Good luck! I am making a thomas the train cake soon, very excited icon_smile.gif

A friend of mine did a Thomas cake with two round layers (one big, one small). On the bottom layer, she made a track around it with black licorice. Put a thomas train (the actual wooden train) on it. On the top layer, she made clouds and put harold (wooden) on top. It looked amazing. Do a search on Thomas cake with track/harold.
