Hi Melissa- you don’t need a bamboo steamer. Just use a large wide stockpot. You’ll have to do the buns in batches, but it will work. Fill pot with a couple inches of water.

If you don’t have a small bowl, take an empty small can (the same can that I use as my cookie cutter in the recipe) and use that to prop up the plate.
Right before serving, throw all the buns on the plate one last time and re-steam to heat them all up. You want to serve them hot.
I haven’t tried the Pillsbury dough yet – let me know how it goes.
