While talking with other cake decorators about getting a fondant cake to look shiny, we were all throwing out different ideas we had tried, like using a paint brush to put a very small amount of water all over the covered cake would give it a nice shine. There were others who talked about using different luster dusts to get a shiny appearance on a cake or particular object. Then I brought up what I had recently tried that worked very well and many thought I was a little crazy, but I have been using the spray pam and it works like a charm. I have used the name brand spray, and I have used my local stores brand and they both worked equally well, the nice thing is I used the butter flavored ones and they seemed to soak into the fondant very nicely and left a beautiful shine. I did not discover this great thing on purpose. I had a cake on the counter that was covered in fondant, and I was spraying a empty baking pan to get ready for baking a cake, and noticed the over spray got on my cake, I was very surprised to see how cool it looked, so I sprayed the entire cake to see what would happen. I thought I would let all my cake friends in on this cool little technique that I am sure will have the need to make their cake or object shiny in the future.
