Does anyone have any tips on how to make fondant look really shiney other than steamers? I did see where you can spray your cake with a light coat of cooking spray but wasn't sure how that would end up.

I read in one of the threads on this site that you can also use shortening. I would apply it with a pastry brush. Very thinly of course. The spray might work too, I would also apply it with a brush. Maybe you should try both ways on a scrap of fondant. Who knows, the spray might break down or melt the fondant. Good Luck!

Just asked this question a few days ago and got lots of great ideas. But the one that worked the best for me was...... 50/50 mix of corn syrup and alcohol (Vodka) and shake it in a small bottle and then apply with a brush.
Hope this helps.
