Hi Everyone, I'm fairly new to cake decorating, only for close friends and my kids. I ordered a tinkerbell cake kit (plasic fairy figures) to make for my daughter's birthday and the directions call for airbrushing. Obviously I have not airbrushed before and I'm not too keen on making that investment right now. Any suggestions on how to make the icing look like it is several shades of green?? I've included a link to a picture of the completed cake that I am trying to simulate. Also the cake is 3 layers tall. Will that require additional cake boards and dowels? Thanks so much!

You can ice the tops on one green and use a darker green on the sides. You can also try the spray cans of green. Wilton and Better crocker make some.

You can also dust it with different shades of green petal dusts.
