I have seen cake decorators to put for a short moment, steam. They look awesome. I have not tried myself though.

I also think where you live has a lot to do with it. I live in a hot dry place and my fondant is dull and cracks. My friend lives in a humid place and it doesn't dry very fast and turns out nice and shiny. I do rub mine with extra fondant in my hand and that really does help. You can also hot steam it, but I don't have a hot hand steamer. A very light spray of water will work but be careful not to get to much.

Without seeing a picture here's my guess. It probably dusted with shimmer dust or luster dust. There are some airbrush colors that would also give the shimmer. It wouldn't matter what fondant you used it should give you the same effect.

You can add a gloss to your fondant by rubbing it down with another piece of fondant. Ball up a piece in your hand and buff the surface you want glossy.
