Hi all,

I will be baking a cake for a company party and it is going to be a logo(The yellow without the white part). I attached an image of what the cake will look like and the color breakdown.

-Is there any advice you can offer?
-Can i cover the parts with parchment paper to not overlap the color and keep the lines sharp?
-Airbrush color recommendation?


Thanks in advance!!!

Hey that's my companyicon_smile.gif Heehee. The hard part with airbrushing is crips lines. I have not perfected that so for me, for the white part, I would actually cut the letters out of fondant. Print out the logo on card stock and cut out the template and then use a new exact knife to cut it out of fondant with a little tylose that has set up a bit. I did that for the corporate anniversary cake in my photos (bar code cake).
If you do go with the airbrush, my one recommendation is to use small nuts (from a tool box) on the edges of the parchment to keep it from lifting up from the air pressure of the airbrush.

Thanks for your reply!!!


Do you mean crisp lines?


I wanted to use a long metal ruler and lay it on top of the parchment paper without putting pressure to not leave marks so it wont fly off.
