Hello All,
My wife wanted me to post some questions.
Her Qs are
Can you spray fondant?
If you can,does it run/or fade/ or bunch up if there are any cracks in the fondant?
She is going to try her first cake with fondant.
Thanks
Ron

I think she means can you airbrush your colors like you would a regular cake.

Im a newbie, but i looked it up in one of my cake books and it looks like you do everything the same as you would a regular cake. It doesnt say anything about needing to change up the formula. Sorry i cant be better help, but everyone on this site is helpful, youll probably get a GOOd answer soon!! Good luck.

yes, you can airbrush fondant cakes... if there are cracks in the fondant or mishaps.... yes, it would be noticable.... keep the airbrush moving.... to make it even in color.... and not puddle up.... don,t see how it can fade... unless it sits for long with outside light coming in on it. hth

I found out the hard way that fondant can and does fade, in the sunlight. I transported a cake 6 hours in a bakery box with a little plastic window. I never thought about the sun shining down on it. The top of the cake was white while the sides were pink! I was able to cover it up...but it would have been nice to know beforehand. =o) Hope this helps!
