I was wondering how do I make my buttercream shinny..I have noticed some cakes on here that are decorated with buttercream and they have a shine to them. I was wondering if there is something I can add the mixture to make it shinny or does it have to do with a particular recipe.

Have u got an example picture? If it's more of a shimmer than a shine it could be pearly or lustre dust.
