Can someone tell me if I airbrush my cake tonight and put it in the frige, will it develop spots from condensation from condensation? If so, I guess that means I'll have to wait until the cake is completely dry before I can airbrush it tomorrow? It's funny, I loose all ability to think when I'm making cakes?

NO - you cannot airbrush the cake and then refrigerate. The condensation will make the airbrushed colors run like crazy.

I airbrush cakes and refrigerate all the time....

The "midnight ride" cake in my recent photos was airbrushed and refrigerated. The photo was taken after delivery.

I suppose if it is really hot and humid you might have issues, but I've never had so much condensation it actually runs...just gets damp and dries again, exactly where it was before.

You had a different experience than I did! I guess you will just have to try it and see how it works for you!

Oh my, so I'm still confused as to what to do. I know at the bakery I worked at they use to refrigerate, but they had a temp controlled frige. Sometimes my cakes come out with condensation and sometimes it doesn't. It's on the humid side here today, so I guess I'd better walk on the side of caution and save the airbrushing until tomorrow morning. Thanks ladies for all your help.

Kitagirl, I just looked at your cakes to see your "midnight ride" cake. Your cakes are awesome-such clever ideas and beautiful work. Just wanted to share that.

Just curious as to the reason you need to refrigerate? Does it have a perishable filling?

Since airbrush colors are alcohol soluble, one they dry there should be no big problem with moisture.
