Does anyone know where I can get or how I can make edible laquer that I can apply with my airbrush?

Thank You icon_smile.gif

I never do this but I am giving mysel a bump because I really need to find a way to make a car cake that I am making shiny like the paint that a car would normally have. I would like to accomplish this with an airbrush if possible.

Thank you icon_smile.gif

I have yet to see a product out that you can use in your airbrush that looks and works the same as edible laquer sold in a can.It is only sold at restaraunt supply stores or kitchen specialty shops.I know it is very expensive ..like $30.00 a can

I had bookmarked this recipe awhile back and it may not be what you are looking for but I hope it helps!

Hmmm..Did you google edible food laquer? I know there is a few sites that sell it but not sure which ones.

Global now has a big can - 12 oz instead of the 100ml (about 3.4 oz) cans. Although $30 sounds high, it actually is a very good buy when you figure the amount for the price

I found that if you use the colored cocoa butter rather than food coloring in your airbrush you can get that shine like the metal on a car. The pearl and other metal shimmers look really good.

Where do you get colored cocoa butter? Never even heard of it.

What about steaming it like they do on Cake Boss? That always makes the fondant very shiney.

I get the cocoa butter at chef rubber. Their website is chefrubber.com. Do a search on cocoa butter and you will see the bottles of the metallic butter. It's already tempered, so all you do is warm it to a consistency that works with your airbrush.
