The Big question is;
How & Why Do You Steam Fondant After It's Applied to a Cake? In trying to answer these questions, I have compiled some useful information about steamers, their operation principles and how best to use them to achieve your aim on cake decorations

Fondant is one of the cake decorator's best friends, a form of icing that can be rolled and shaped rather like modeling clay. Sheets of rolled fondant give cakes an unmatched smooth, velvety finish, and a skilled decorator can turn small pieces of colored fondant into decorative accents that are limited only by the imagination. Fondant's naturally matte surface is one of its few limitations. To give the fondant a sheen, or to give floral decorations a more realistic appearance, you can use steam. Steam is simply moisture on a high temperature which tends to evaporate from the surface of water at a little more than the boiling point.
