I have ordered my airbrush and am impatiently waiting for it to arrive lol.
Anyway questions when airbrushing fondant:

1. You ice cake and then if I wanted to airbrush whole cake do I need to let the fondant dry out for a bit or is it ok to airbrush straight away.
2. How long does the colour tend to take to dry, just roughly, ie do I need to airbrush the whole cake and then leave it till the next day before I decorare.

thanks in advance x

You can airbrush right away. Make sure you hold the airbrush a little bit further away or the coloring tends to beads up from the shortening used on fondant.

It won't take much time for it to dry. Depends on how thick you apply the airbrush color.

I also ordered an airbrush today and cannot wait for it to come in. I am making a "pizza" cake and want to use it for the crust coloring. Thanks for asking because I was wondering too!

airbrushing is so much fun. Personally I like to let my fondant dry a bit first. just my preferance.

deepending upon how thick it can vary alot on how long it takes to dry. stars took 3 hours to dry. fish took less than 20 minutes.

simply sassy. have you seen this pizza cake? it blew me away, it looked so real and she put instructions with it !!! http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/1342462/how_to_make_a_pizza_cake.html?cat=22
