I'm thinking of spraying my "Nightmare Before Christmas" cake with the Wilton sprays in the can. Does the black and orange make the BC tase funny or weird? Does it spray evenly?
Sorry about all the questions. I don't have a spray gun and think that the spray look would be cool.
I have used it. As for taste, I don't think it alters the taste of icing. Does it spray evenly-not really, but it's not too bad either Sometimes there are bigger "dots" of spray-does that make any sense? If I were you, I'd spray it on a piece of poster board, or evem plain copy paper to see if it's okay for your need. Personally I wouldn't use on a really "important" cake. HTH
I don't have an air brush gun either
I used the green for the TMNT cake in my pics. I think it was okay but it smells strong and gets everywhere, lol! It didn't alter the taste of the icing though.
I use the wilton spray colors quite often, especially to deepen the icing colors if they are still too light. I would use it where you have enough ventilation. It does leave little droplets if you are not spraying it holding the can level. Try spraying it on a piece of paper/paper towel first to get used to the way the can sprays, and you should be fine. I didn't find much of a flavor left on the icings I've used it on. good luck.
Thanks for your replys! I'll get some and try it out first on a peice of paper. I'm relieved to hear it didn't alter the taste! I can't see the green cake b/c the gallery is still down
Yes, I have used the spray, it does not alter the taste of the icing, however.... surround your area with old sheets or cardboard, then start spraying before you hit the cake and try and keep the pressure the same, I have had okay luck with this method. I would invest in a airbrush. You will make your money back on it easily!! Good luck
Another question... I guess I should spray it BEFORE I put it on the cake plate. It sound likethis stuff is messy and smelly! I'll plan on using a covered peice of cardboard to put the cake on, spray it then place on the seperator plate. sound good?
I used it and I liked it. The best advice I had was to start spraying off of the cake and move over the cake and then off the cake before you stopped.
I have used the pink spray and wasnt that impressed by the look. Maybe I wasnt spraying from far away enough ... Good luck though!
I used the Green Wilton Color Spray for the grass on this cake. it reeks to high Heaven. Should've had a surgeons mask on or something. Worked great for me.
I used the orange spray over fondant on my tiger cake in my pics. It didn't change the taste, but it was absolutely everywhere. My 3-year old son wanted to help me (hey it was for his birthday, so ok!). I think it came out ok, especially with part of it done by a 3 year old. Oh yeah...later in the day my son sneezed out orange snot!!!
