Hi everyone ,
I am presently making a 3D cake and was wondering if I could , if possible airbrush modelling Chocolate? Cake with be covered in it,to my knowledge I cannot find any cake store in my area that sells powered food colour to help me with coloring the modelling chocolate. Therefore , I would like to know if it is possible and how to go about it ?

Yes, that should work just fine.
Airbrush color will not stick to chocolate, but you can airbrush the colored cocoa butters that are on the market and they work just fine. You can drydust chocolate with lustre dust and that works well and looks fabulous.
it doesn't adhere well at all...........however, you can try mixing the color into the corn syrup before adding it to the melted chocolate if you want to color it with regular americolor gel colors (I do that all the time).......also, americolor sells something called "candy flo-coat" and I use that mixed with americolor gels and color the melted chocolate and then add the corn syrup.....either way works well..........if you need a REALLY dark color like a deep red, it might be hard though
Thank so much for all you help, I will definately take in and use it to my advantage . I would have never thought of adding the color to the corn syrup before hand .. that is a great one .
AI have airbrushed using the Wilson Gold airbrush and it turned out fine for accents, I wouldn't recommend airbrushing an entire cake though. You can (as stated before) add color to the chocolates during the melting process but the color will always darken when. You add the heated corn syrup.
ALauren kitchens has a great crafty.com video on modeling chocolate. She tints the chocolate with gels and also airbrushed the modeling chocolate with no problems, I have tinted my modeling chocolate. Many times ssuccessfully after the kneeding stage (that allows me to make smaller quantities of a colour). Haven't tried airbrushing though...
a Everything on Modeling choc. I found last night. Im wanting to try it...so I researched this....
