I know people steam their cakes to get rid of icing sugar/cornstarch or to make the cakes shiny, I tried this with my iron as was having a problem with a cake and it left water marks, more problems lol.
do steamers leave water marks as am thinking of investing in one, thanks
My steamer is old and was very cheap, and I like the way it works. I haven't had a problem with watermarks.
I wouldn't necessarily "invest" in a steamer....you can get a cheap, perfectly effective one for about 15 bucks. Make sure you don't keep it on any one spot for two long to make sure the vapor doesn't start pooling in one area.
I bought this one specifically for caking and I love it. $20 at Walmart.
