For those of you that airbrush, do you do all your fondant airbrush? I am watching ace of cakes, and noticed taht Duff is airbrushing everything!

I tend to think if it needs color....airbrush it on rather than kneed it in! Not having to make a dozen different batches of colored fondant is another benefit. Shading is another advantage of using the airbrush to add color to any project from funky to elegant.

Airbrushing sometimes makes it look marbled. If you want a consistent even color - I would suggest you do the colored fondant. That is unless you are an expert airbrusher!!! more power to you!

im with millycakes. i have airbrushed before but only for a faded color effect and it worked great, but for a nice even look I would knead it in, no question.

How/ What do you use to color the fondant? Will regular Wilton coloring work? Americolor?
