I was wondering if you can color fondant with your airbrush instead of kneading the color in?.

For instance Im trying to make a Luau torso cake but figure I just airbrush the body (flesh color), and green hula skirt (of couse I will airbrush then assemble the cake)

Is that possible? I just want to skip that step of kneading (color if possible)

the cake Im trying to make is inspired by: AZCakeGirl hula girl cake.

Well thank you in advance.

i believe you can, if you watch any of the cake shows alot of them use an airbrush to shade and colour their work. If your not sure how it will look or work you could always airbrush a small piece and see if your happy with the result. HTH good luck

you sure can.. but if you arent used to doing it.. whatever you do, make sure you test your colors out on scrap fondant so you know how much pressure to use with the airbrush, because too much color, so that the fondant gets all wet, will ruin it. Ask me how I know ! icon_lol.gif
