I have done one hand painted cake recently and used cocoa butter and dust colours, i was wondering if any of you professionals had any other tips or techniques for painting on cakes, i am interested to learn how you lovely people the other side of the pond do this type of thing
i am a newbie here, only found the site yesterday and love it already
Sorry I don't know the answer, but wanted to at least say "Hi" and WELCOME!!
Welcome to CC. There are lots of wonderful people in here as you may already know.
I am not a professional but I do have a background in painting. I think it is a great start to invest in nice fine brushes--do consider the food safety though. I believe countrykitchensa carry some nice ones.
You can also use gel colors dilluted in vodka or extracts and air brush colors works fine as well.
thanks for your replies i have tried the vodka but wasnt as keen as the cocoa butter, would love to learn to airbrush, but its so expensive to buy one !!!! i might start saving !
Oh they really are expensive but you can also use the airbrush colors straight from the bottle to use for painting.
I either mix cocoa butter with petal dust or use gel colors in
vodka or lemon extract. It depends on what I am painting as to which I use. I haven't tried airbrush colors yet...
