I posted a question last week in regards to spraying silk flowers with my airbrush gun to get the color I needed....
IT WORKED PERFECTLY Didn't even have to wait for them to dry.
White flowers are so much easier to find and a larger variety too.
thanks for sharing
After thinking about it a while, the only down side that I can think of is the
color may fade onto the icing ????
I will have to wait and see. Unless someone else has done this and knows the answer...
Cool.. Thanks for letting us know.
After spraying, could it be painted with the gel? Maybe that would prevent it from bleeding?
Try putting a sprayed flower on practice cake or cupcake. If you are using butter cream, wait until it has crusted before placing the flower. Wait 24 hours and see what happens.
I agree with Narie. I would try them on a practice cake and see if they bleed onto the icing. Good luck
It may be ok, since the flowers won't be added until I set it up. So, it will only be a couple of hours before it is served.
But, I think I will try with a practice cake to see if it does fade onto and if so, how long it takes....I could also, but some parchment paper between the cake and flowers so they don't touch...it's a thought
You might have a problem with "wet" icings such as whipped cream (pastry pride, et al.) and perhaps meringue buttercreams - but a traditional buttercream won't absorb colors like that. It will bleed if the moisture from the icing transfers to the flower - rewetting the color. There isn't any significant moisture in regular (american) buttercream.
