My husband just bought a really nice air compressor for small, jobs for in the house things and automotive reasonings also. I was wondering if there is anyway you can use the edible, coloring for cakes with this compressor? I hope so, as I would buy a separate, small trigger for cakes only. I don't want to have to buy the cake airbrush kit if I don't have to. Please let me know if you can use these home compressors and if so, if there are any important tips on making it safe for cakes. The compressor is oil free he bought.

Thanks so much for your continued help!

The PSI is more than likely way too high for airbrushing cakes with it.

What is the PSI that it should be? I can check to see if that can be lowered at all on machine//Thanks!

NEVER the answer!! To all of you cake CAN use a reg. compressor!! YAY! Just make sure you get your own sprayer for cakes only and you can adjust PSI level on compressor from 0- to any PSI you want it. I'm sooooo excited! Good news and if your hubby has one,,get going on it..It will be worth it.

That is great news for you! The one my hubby has would blow my air brush up!

I am thinking you may want to get your own air hose also, you don't want to use the one that he uses for your cakes.

Good luck!
