My child got brown icing colourant on my finished white cake today about half an hour before it was due to be picked up. Is it possible to remove accidents like this with as little damage as possible??

Depends on the kind of icing ? Buttercream , I suppose you can scrape it off and replace and smoothe it icon_smile.gif Fondant , you may have to take the layer off and recover , I dont know with out a picture of the cake and a little more detail... I hope you got it worked out though icon_smile.gif

Hi sorry it was fondant icing. I just rubbed some white dust over it, it wasnt not too bad and the person cake was for said she couldnt see it but I felt bad. It could have been worse and I dont think he will do it again lol

If it is on fondant a little vodka on a q-tip or paper towel should take it off.
