How do you steam Fondant???? - Page 2

post #16 of 48
Ok this is a very crude way - Hope u folks dont laugh....I took a pasta pot and let the water boil. Turned off the heat and in the top pan set my fondant flowers....for ~2 mins....The flowers turned out very shiny and the colors more vibrant.....This was the cheapest way I could do it...I know this wont work for full cakes but then again it worled for my flowers...Thot I'd share with u all....

Buddy's show Cake Boss, is on TLC, not food network. He really has some great techniques, and a great sense of humor.

I have tried steaming. It only looks pretty and shiny while it's wet. When it's dry, it's dry.. It looks liken any ordinary fondant.

np biz, we all gotta stick together on that one, it took me two days to realize what ev1 else was talking about. I kept thinking how are they gettin that out of a software program!!! True blonde, not peroxide poisoning (at least then I would have an excuse lol)

On Cake Boss Monday night he steamed with a garment steamer and his fondant stayed shiny because I saw it later in the show when he gave it to the relative...I can hardly wait to try it....he used a hand steamer and did not hold it near the fondant lomng at all...that show will be repeated Monday night at 10 30

he also done it on a challenge once as well, it was down to the last few minutes of the competition, and he needed to get his fondant decorations on, so steam went on the cake and in no time he had his fondant decorations on the cake. pretty kewl!!
cake boss is awesome!!

I just steamed some gumpaste roses last night, because they looked dry, and OMG they are so shiny and vibrant. They still looked the same way this morning. Now they tell me to dust them and resteam them again. It sets the dust color. Give it a try, but watch it if you do it to long the gumpaste starts getting soft.

He also did it on the groom's cake (gambling table) on the wedding cake challenge on Food Network, the one where he finished so early. Is that what you are talking about?

I have steamed my flowers in Jennifer Dontz's class and it really made the color brighter and got rid of the cornstarch/10X. I really want a steamer for cakes now. I had a fondant cake this weekend, and couldn't get all the 10X off the edges of the details. I had a fondant wedding cake last fall -the caterer left the fondant covered cake board in the walk in over the weekend. The fondant was sticky due to all the time in the fridge, but it was the smoothest fondant I had ever seen! I think the steamer would just be a more controlled way of doing the same thingicon_smile.gif
