I've been asked for a heart cake with black and white plaid. I do have an airbrush but I have NO idea how to pull this off. Does anyone have ideas or examples? Anything would help thanks
I would suggest you cut a template from clear plastic and airbrush the black part of the plaid on the white cake. Cut a variety of stripes...different width like a plaid fabric....and airbrush the stencil vertically then horizontally... where the black crosses black previously applied, you get deeper shades and will resemble a plaid fabric.
You can also use plain paper to cut a template/stencil but it is easier to see with the 'see thru' kind for placement. An exacto knife will do a good job cutting for you or you might be able to use tiny scissors to cut stripes. I have often printed out a design from the computer and cut out and used as a stencil.
You could also take a scrapbook paper or other plaid image and make an edible image and use that. I will be trying that for a grooms cake in June.
Aine2 has a video tutorial out on how she makes plaid. I hope the link wasn't lost in The Crash, but maybe you can search for Aine2's posts and see if you can find it?
