I've been asked to make it for 3rd November, would I need an airbrush for the colour on the pies do you think? or could i achieve that with a paintbrush?

Yup I agree, covered in brown fondant first then airbrushed.

I thought so, guess I'll be making a poor imitation then with my paint brush and a sponge lol. I'll have to have a practice first. Thanks icon_smile.gif

The "crusts" on both of these cakes were done with a large makeup brush and a piece of wadded up cheesecloth, and colors mixed with vodka. I believe I used different combinations of Wilton brown, copper and ivory, adding the colors with the brush and subtracting with the cheesecloth till I had the effect I wanted. I took the shine off the pizza crust by giving it a VERY light dusting with cornstarch after I had the correct color:

Thanks, they look great! I hope I can get it right! I really need to think about investing in an airbrush.

I just wanted to say thanks a lot again to cakeyouverymuch, the pie colour turned out pretty good. If I had taken more time it might have looked even better but I was happy with it anyway. Thank yoouuuu icon_smile.gif don't know how it'd have ended up without your help and u forgot to write it in the description
