can anyone tell me why the cake boss uses a clothes steamer to steam his finished cakes. Is it to add adhesive to all his decorations OR is it to make everything shiny. I have s steamer and thought I might beable to use it?

Both, it makes the fondant sticky for adding accents and leaves it with a shiny finish. Just don't go overboard with the steam cos too much will ruin your cake

It used mostly to set the dust color for your decorations but yes, it can make things a little shiny. Most of the shine goes away as it drys.
