The Virtues of Steam
Steam makes an immediate difference in the appearance of fondant. Instead of its usual soft, matte appearance, steamed fondant displays a slick, shiny surface similar to molded chocolate. If your fondant shows fingerprints, cornstarch or powdered sugar from the rolling process, a quick blast of steam will make all of those disappear. An entire decorated cake can be steamed by putting it in a large countertop steamer, but that glosses the whole cake. Steaming by hand lets you control the entire process.
Wherever the fondant is steamed, its surface becomes shiny. For example you might steam Santa's boots or belt to make them shiny, while shielding the red suit with a spatula or sheet of foil to keep it matte and velvety-looking. If you use luster dust on your decorations to give them a more realistic appearance, steaming will "set" the dust and prevent it from rubbing off. Steaming also deepens the colors slightly. The shininess of steaming is temporary and will fade over a day or so, but can be refreshed by steaming the cake again. Don't over-steam a single area, or it might soften enough to droop and lose its shape.
