I have a Joy Mangano My Little Steamer and I just love it. It holds a lot of water, gets up a head of steam very fast, and has a nice long cord. I found one on Ebay with free shipping and it came to less than $20. Smaller travel steamers are worthless because they don't hold enough water.

If you're talking about an airbrush, yes, any one of those at a hobby store is fine, as long as you use it only for edible airbrush colors for cakes.

I was going to suggest a 'worthless' travel steamer icon_wink.gif mine works perfect and I paid $5.00 for it. Never had a problem running out of steam. (Maybe on a larger cake you might but then I would just refill it) Also if you have a Joann's fabrics by you, you can use a coupon (competitors if necessary)and get one up to 50% off as long as it isn't fabric. Joann's by me will accept it for irons, steamers etc.
