I know there is an edible glaze out there you can spray your cakes with to get a shine but I've heard of a more popular option spraying the cake with cooking spray and the shine will last 3-5 hours. I've not personally done either, I've lightly steamed my fondant covered cakes to shine them up but that doesn't last long.

Thanks - you reminded me that I could use confectioner's glaze - used it for a wine bottle. May work for this too!

Try a mix of corn syrup and some vodka and paint it on using light strokes. I have used it on several cakes and it is super shiny.

ETA: use approximately equal parts of each
