I started working with an airbrush on fondant covered cakes and i heard that you should use blue painters tape to get straight sharp lines, which is true, BUT when i remove the tape there is always fondant sticking to it. Does anybody know a trick to avoid that? Or is there a better technique i could use?
Thanks for the help[/b]

I really need to see the answer to this also. It looks so simple on TV!

Silly question here but, do you guys use an airbrush machine? Reason I ask is that I saw someone airbrushing with a can and a tubelike spray nozzle attached to the can. HAve you guys seen these?? Or was I dreaming??

Hi nicrysmom,
to answer your question, you can actually buy compressed air in a can and use it the same way you use a small compressor, there are also spray cans out there, I believe by Wilton, unfortunately only in a few colors. I tried them they do work fine for big projects, no detail work though.
