I am thinking about buying the airbrushing kit but I haven't ever used one. Is it easier than coloring icing to cover a whole cake? How does it hold up room temp. on buttercream? Any advise would help. Thanks

Advice: Yes, it's easier... yes, it holds up. One disadvantage is if you accidentally touch your cake, the white icing beneath the color will show unless you're prepared to touch it up again with the airbrush.

I recently used red coloring for cookies. Gosh....it was bitter. I don't think that part of the cookie could be eaten. If you airbrushed red on, could you get the true red without it being as bitter? Thanks ahead of time.

I think airbrushed buttercream has a different look than tinted buttercream. Fondant takes airbrushing better for a dark color but I still start out with a tinted fondant and then darken with the airbrush....I don't use the airbrush INSTEAD of color...only to darken color...or on buttercream, to add a two-toned effect.
