I have used lustre dust on chcolate before, but I am wondering if I can "paint" on chocolate? Either with (edible) airbrush color of regular food coloring.
Or something else?
Just wondering if anyone knew.
Yes, but.................It is very difficult.
Frances Kuyper (The original "CakeLady") show us in a class yrs ago how to do it. As I remember you spray the item w/Baker's Joy (or similar); wipe most of it off w/paper towel, then use airbrush colors to paint.
Anyway, that's how I rememver it from some 20 yrs ago.
I believe, if you're using white chocolate, you can paint in it with melted cocoa butter mixed with powdered color.
Thanks, I will have to give these a try!
I painted on molded chocolate with powdered food coloring mixed with vodka.
From what I understand....You can use pearl dusts to add a colored sheen. As far as painting on chocolate (because this is something I have been looking into also), I'm in agreement w/megpi...you have to use colored cocoa butter. Because chocolate is "oil" based, water based food colorings or gels (like Wilton) bead on the surface. You have to paint with something that is also "oil" based, edible and that dries. I actually went on line last week and found 3 suppliers that sell edible colored cocoa butter. I do not have those names on me now but if you would like to PM me I will be glad to share them with you. I got a book called "Pop Bakery" and this is how I found out about painting with cocoa butter.
Oh! One more thing...I did purchase some "candy decorating pens" the other day from Wilton. I think they are just candy melts in a tube that you warm up in hot water. I actually never ended up using them.
I painted the chocolate frame, in my graduation cake photo, with gold luster dust mixed with vodka. It took several coats as it beads up. Let it dry between coats.
