I'm new to cake decorating and love it! I want to make a dog cake for my dad. What is a "fur tip"? Is it a special kind of tip? What is "airbrushing"? If you could please help me, I would so appreciate it. Thank you! I LOVE this site!!!!
A fur tip, also called the grass tip, I think is wilton tip 233. When used for fur, pulling away from the cake for 2-3 seconds then releasing will give you the look of animal fur. The longer you pull, the longer the fur. Same for grass.
Airbrushing is a technique that requires special equipment and food grade airbrush color. You need an airbrush system, you can find small ones at any cake supply store online. I use a KopyKake. Airbrushing does take some practice It is basically like a paint sprayer for cakes.
Hi, and welcome The fur tip is tip #233, which also is good for doing hair, grass and fur.. Airbrushing is done with an air compressor, and it uses air to spray food color onto your cake. hth
I think a fir tip is the same kind of tip that makes grass. It has many little holes in the tip and comes in at leat a couple of sizes.
As for airbrushing, well I consider myself a newbie, but that is a play toy I purchased. It allows you to airbrush to color right on the cake or decoration (I secretly love this...he he he)
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you all for your responses and help!!
I LOVE my airbrush. My sweet hubby bought me a kopykake set for my birthday a while back. It is fun fun.
If I can make one suggestion on airbrushing prep the surface well. Any imperfection will show and if you want a depth to the color tint your fondant or BC a shade lighter than the color you are going to use. It gives a liot of detail if you use it correctly and it does take alittle practice but the results are so nice.
