Hi, first thanks for clicking and reading!!
i had to make a cake quick, and i didnt want to spend ages making fondent black, so i covered the cake and airbrushed it black, job done....or so i thought. the colour made everyones lips n teeth black, majorly black, luckily it was for friends!!
this is also a problem i have with my printer images
the cake had been made over 24 hours before delivery so i would expect the colours to have set, and not stained everything, is there something i can use to help it set? im sure i didnt over spray and i have the same problem with pictures from my edible printer :S
im totally open to any tips advice or suggestions as i am eager to use this equipment xxx
I think any dark colors will dye your mouth such as red black blue green. as far as I know there is nothing you can do. I always try to get away from those colors as the main color and use more as accent coloring.
"Setting" doesn't mitigate the fact that once it gets wet with saliva, it's a liquid again, free to migrate around the eater's mouth and stain teeth, tongue, lips, etc.
This happens with fondant, buttercream, etc. It's just a simple fact when using dark colors.
So long as its not just me doing something wrong. ill try n stay clear of dark colours in future. Thanks x x
