Hi all,

I was hoping to get some insight on this.

I'm making a cake which is predominantly black. I have black satin ice fondant, but I need to make a white/blue fade into black (not a significant amount of color). I have an airbrush and I have white. Would it work if I airbrushed white on the black fondant?

Basically, is the white opaque enough to show up on the black?

Thanks for your help! =D

I've never tried it but I would suggest doing it the other way around. I'd start with white fondant and sirbrush the blue then the black. The white fondant is a whole lot cheaper than the black too so that would save you money!

I was figuring it would work better the other way around icon_wink.gif

I had hoped to use my black fondant (it's already made), but I'll run to the store later and buy supplies to make white fondant. =)

Thanks for the advice =D
