Hello everyone I am looking to buy an airbrush for my cakes but I have no idea where to start. Where can I get one? Which kind is the best? Do a lot of fellow decorators use them? and is it worrth the money??? I know lots of questions. I just want to make sure I go with the right airbrush for my cakes.

my husband bought me one for my birthday last year, but I haven't really used it yet. I tried a couple of times, and definitely need to practice with it before using it on a cake that I'd sell.

He bought it online...sorry I don't remember where right now. But if you do searches here, I think there are quite a few threads about them and places to buy them and which brands are good etc etc etc....

best of luck!

i got mine on for $44. (I believe their 100 model.) It's a gravity-fed (from which what I've read are the best to get in any field). I got my compressor at Harbor Freight for $60. It works fantastic, I love it.

Occasionally airbrush city has 50% off sales, and free shipping promotions.

Harbor Freight also sells airbrushes for $10 if you just wanted to play with one. They had a combo set for $60 last time I was there. They have stores all over the US, or you can order online.

Hi, my DH ordered one for me at kopykake. I just got it a few days ago. For right at $300 I got the airmaster set, a book, a set of 12 colors, cleaner and a filter. I can't wait to try it out.
