Hi everyone, I have a question. When you are going to airbrush an entire cake how do you do it?

I've airbrushed two cakes already and both of them have lost their shape and the fondant craked.

what did I do wong?

How thick are you putting it on? Try multiple light layers allowing it to dry in between coats. Not sure if thats what is causing your problems, but worth a try.

I agree...You need to do several light coats and let it dry in between.If you are spraying and spraying the fondant will get damp thus the loss of shape.

it could take 3-4 coats and I would wait a few hours until the paint looks dry to the touch..Did you use airbrush color? you said craft paint up above.Hmmmm

Yeah I know bakery craft also makes cake deocrating supplies but she stated craft paint so I am wondering if she is using the right stuff.
