Hi All!

Has anyone ever used the Wilton brand Color Mist Food Color Spray on a Buttercream Iced Cake?

I am doing a cake in a couple weeks and thought that I would add some highlights to the cake by spraying some of this spray on it.

What do you think?? Do they really work? Any Tips, or horror stories from them??

Thank you

I used it on the Buzz Lightyear cake in my gallery. It worked, but to get it that dark took a lot of color. I did it in three coats. Make sure you do it outside, or on a covered surface, because it goes everywhere! It was kinda hard to breath, too, but I did use a lot.

I have used it too & it gets everywhere, so make sure you cover your work area icon_smile.gif .
The only problem I had was that I would get droplets spray onto the cake so I wiped the spray nozzle quite a few times.

I was totally unsuccessful using it. It was watering and dripped everywhere. I don't know if it was the product or me.

I agree....cover your work area and wipe the nozzle often. I too get the droplets of color.

Works great though.

Have used it - works well, but def agree with PP's - wipe that nozzle often so you don't get drips. Practice a few sprays on a board or something. I used it on my jungle cake to do the 'grass' on top of pale yellow icing. Good luck!
