Can you use the Lucks shimmer airbrush colors as food coloring to tint a batch of frosting, and if so would the frosting be a glimmery color? I've never used it before, so I'm not positive of what it is...hope this isn't a silly question! I'm making a champagne-colored cake and it would be a bonus if it was shimmery! I need to pick up whatever I'm going to use today, so if anyone knows I'd appreciate it! Thanks!
Same question about the Amerimist sheens also. If they give the tinted frosting a sheen, or the shimmery effect lost?
My thought is that the shimmery effect will probably be lost. You could pull out a small amount of buttercream and try it.
Just keep in mind that the airbrush colors are liquid, so they can thin the icing down if you have to add a lot to get it the color you want.
Oh I had no clue that they were liquid. I need black also so I think I'll just work with americolor. Thank you.
