I had an order for a Hollywood Star/Walk of Fame cake. So that it would resemble the terrazzo stone, I faux finished it by spatter painting!! I used airbrush colors and a basting brush. There was paint all over my kitchen - and me - and my kids (who were watching). I always enjoy decorating, but this was WAAAAAY fun!!

As a former theater geek (ok, who am I kidding, I still am!), I LOVE that technique and I have some very... shall we say.. colorful clothing now because of it. Great cake!

amysue99 .....your cake looks great! I must put that in my memory bank of things to try.

I think CC is having a little of an attitude this morning. The photo is working fine now.

Love the cake!

For the future... Did you spatter with one hand or two? When I used to make scenery for plays, we always used one hand to hold the paintbrush and tapped the side of that hand with the other hand. It's supposed to make less over-spatter.

Yes, that's how I did it too. I held the brush in my right hand and tapped with with a ruler using my left hand. The mess seemed to be span about a 2 ft radius from the cake.

Yeah.. I can't see it either. It's weird that it works for some people and doesn't work for others. Oh well... I would have loved to see it.

I love spatter painting on cake! It's fun, isn't it? And if the kids get in the way, you just give them freckles!

COOL CAKE!! I did a splatter effect once, but, not having an airbrush....I just "flicked the brush" LOL Yeah, I WISH a 2 ft radius was as far as mine went. PLUS, it was in the CHURCH kitchen! We're STILL finding silver "splats"! LOL

Keep on CAKIN'!
