I'm an old had at baking cakes, but not doing any real decorating. I'm supposed to be decorating a 12 in round layered cake with fondant for the first time and need some assistance. I was planning to use Fondx and then spray with Chefmaster edible spray, but now I read you shouldn't use airbrushing w Fondx so I can't use edible spray? Does anyone have any experience with this? The cake is supposed to look like a roll of duct tape
Why aren't you supposed to airbrush FondX? I need to know because I just bought an airbrush and I use FondX almost exclusively. I haven't used my airbrush yet, but I've used those Wilton Color Mist sprays, which I think is just airbrush color in aerosol, on my FondX-covered cakes many times. The results have always been great-looking. Are you not supposed to use the two together because of some chemical reaction? Is it a health hazard or is it supposed to end up not looking good? Please let me know, because now I'm worried.
I haven't seen anything listing it as a health hazard, nothing like that. Just all the info I've found on Fondx FAQ's says the airbrushing won't work. Maybe the color runs or something? I haven't tried it myself that's why I was asking too.
Ah, thank goodness! Well, I'll be finding out in a couple of weeks when I make my first airbrushed cakes. I'm glad I found your post. I'll be sure to do a test swatch first and switch over to something else if it ends up looking yucky.
