Hi Marlee
There seem to be a few things to use to paint on cakes. Others will give you more answers, but I know there is edible paint to use. You can use it with a brush, or in a air brush if you have one. You can do a search like on here, or like on Global Sugar Art for such products. Good luck and keep baking!!

Hey Marlee! I paint on my cakes (by hand) with my Americolor paste(icing colors) and a small brush- straight from the bottle. If I need the color to show up better (i.e.- not just black), I mix the color with vodka until I get the right consistency/color. The vodka will dry quickly and not leave any taste behind.

If you have/get an airbrush, several companies make edible paint to spray onto the cakes (such as Kopy Kake and Americolor).

Thanks so much!! I have also heard that icing colors with cocoa butter would work. Has anyone tried that??
