Sorry if this is covered elsewhere, but if I want to paint on the side of a fondant cake, what is the best thing to use? I'm new to cake decorating, but I've seen some lovely pics on the net - but I'm not sure how they are painted.
I painted on a cake for the 1st time a few days ago. I used gel coloring and a little bit of clean vanilla extract and made a "paint". The extract evaporates since it's mostly alcohol. I had great success with this method.
You can also use powder colouring mixd with a little vodka or other clear alcohol . The vodka evaporates fast
Ooops I meant CLEAR vanilla extract. haha
I prefer airbrush color. But you can use color gel, powder colors or most of the dusts mixed with extracts or alcohol like everclear or vodka.
I usually use either luster dust or petal dust mixed with clear vanilla or vodka, depending on the effect I want to achieve.
Thanks everyone - I'll give it a try
