I have been asked to do a cake like this one from www.pinkcakebox.com. With this type of cake do you use pans that are 2 inches different in size, like 6, 8 and 10? Also, I am planning on making the middle tier red. I am going to do the whole cake in buttercream except for the accents, the will be mmf. Are there any tips to airbrushing buttercream? Thanks
don't put your cake together until the middle tier is airbrushed. Way too much chance of getting red on the other cakes. When airbrushing, do not "overspray". In other words, use sweeping back and forth motions that do not overlap at sides. Too much spray and it will collect and bleed. I like to airbrush it, then after it dries for a couple minutes, go back over it.
I made a red cake(in my photos) and started out with medium red buttercream and then airbrushed red over it so there wasn't a bitter taste of color or too much airbrush that if touched, you see white b.c..
This cake seems to be a 6-8-10 or 5-7-9, the 2" difference.
Can't wait to see the final pics when you post them.
Wow! Your red cake looks great! Sometimes when I ice a cake in bc, it has tiny little cracks in it when I move it. Do you know if the white will show through if it has tiny cracks in it? I have only airbrushed mmf accents before, never bc. Thanks
It came out awesome> What was their reaction?
It was for a friend's mother. She loved it. I haven't heard what her Mom's reaction was yet.
