Some of you may have seen one of my previous posts about how I have an upcoming wedding cake that will have all red and black fondant tiers. I have been looking for good deals on red and black fondant (the two colors I absolutely loath to color myself!) but I just had a thought that I would like to get some experienced opinions on!
Is it possible/easier to airbrush an entire cake black? Starting, of course with a darker base (maybe a gray or something). I just got an airbrush kit for my birthday from a lovely friend and I haven’t gotten the chance to play with it much yet. I would need to practice a ton but I’m curious if the idea is even worth chasing.
Can you airbrush entire tiers of fondant covered cakes black? Is it difficult to get a uniform shade? Can an airbrushed tier be stenciled with royal icing?
Any tips/tricks/thoughts/or feedback would be really appreciated! I may just try and run out and get some black airbrush color to play with this idea. Thanks in advance!
