What about thinned Royal Icing? Might work too.
yes that might work too.. i'm just worried about it looking too dry and brittle? i love the wet look of the paint... how to go about it?
I would color white almond bark and put it in squeeze bottles. It will have a shine when it dries.
That's an interesting cake, so creative!
jgifford, why white almond bark? i'm afraid i can't find that where i live... it looks like it's made out of white chocolate?
Because it's relatively inexpensive and very forgiving. And it take colors well. It's like white chocolate although I don't think there's much actual chocolate in it. Think of a cross between white chocolate and candy melts. You can find it at Wal Mart or most supermarkets.
You could even use Hershey's vanilla chips - - just add a tablespoon of butter when you melt them and add whatever colors you want. I would advise using the candy colors since they're oil based, but you could probably get by with regular colors since you won't need that much to drizzle on the cake.
I think I would do it with cookie glace. It dries with a shine and isn't rock hard.
I think the squeeze bottle is a genius idea rather than piping because you can make it look drippy and messy like splattered paint.
Different colored candy melts.
