I've seen quite a few cakes on the site where people paint scenes on their fondant. Or they paint their gumpaste flowers and figures. What type of "paint" do you use? Thanks!
For the gumpaste flowers, I usually dye with gel color then brush with petal dust. For the painting on the side of the fondant cake, I use gel color thinned down with lemon extract or vodka. This was what I did with the
StarWars cake and the cherry blossom one in my photos. Some people airbrush their gumpaste flowers but I haven't tried that yet.
I use vodka with gel color
sorry for a very simple question,but i am new in cake decoration.is petal dust same with powder color? because here in indonesia,i just have saw wilton gel color and lustre dust
i use my gel paste colours diluted with vodka and have painted scenes and gumpaste objects etc with them however with flowers i would prob go for the coloured dusts
Wow, I had no idea there would be such a simple answer! LOL Duh!
