I ordered some blue royal icing roses and when they were delivered
all I saw were white. I need the blue ones for a cake that is being picked up tomorrow.

Think it would be ok to pour some airbrush color into a cup and paint them with a small brush?

Atleast I have some blue color.

You could also probably dust them with different shades of blue color dust, if you have some available.

I tried airbrushing but it really wasnt gtting the job done so I painted them.
So far so good. Just may take forever to dry. Kinda sticky.

After they dry I maybe able to tell whether or not I can use them. Going to make some from buttercream just incase. Which was not what I wanted to do.

Yes!! I was pleased they were dry and not a bit of stickiness was left.
Took about 3 hours to completely dry maybe because I had the airconditioner on in my shop most of the day.

next time I think I'll place the small 10 inch tabletop fan near them.

I didn't look but I gather these are gum paste flowers? Did you add any alcohol to the food color? That helps with the drying. Also I use a hair dryer to facilitate drying.

Just a coupla thoughts for next time.

Sure you can airbrush them. You also can dust them with petal dust.

Best wishes -
