HI,

I recently saw an episode of Amazing Wedding cakes where they were using painters tape (very clever) to tape off stripes on fondant. I couldn't tell want they were using for the color. Will gel color painted on work or do you think I'd be better served using colored royal icing?

Any suggestions?

The gel color works like a water color paint. Its a lot of fun to paint on an edible surface.

I used painters tape and crystal color powder color to do the strips on this cake.

One thing I learned is that the tape doesn't really like to stick to fondant (at least not for me) and it doesn't couture to rounded surfaces when you are doing up and down strips.

My favoring thing to paint cakes with is airbrush colors. It is already thinned down, and it dries well. icon_smile.gif

Thanks ladies! I would love to have an airbrush, but it's not exactly in the budget at this point. Maybe some day soon!

I didn't mean airbrush the colors on. I meant take the colors made for the airbrush and paint them on using a paint brush. icon_smile.gif

you don't have to have an airbrush...just the colors used in an airbrush.
