In the past I have simply used the usual cake food coloring, (the gel consistency, not the airbrush color or old paste style) when I need to do a hand-brushed painting on fondant. The problem is, when it's humid, I take the cake out of the fridge, and my once-pretty painting is a drippy mess.
I don't do it often, but I have an order for a painted wedding cake next week...
Does anyone use anything different with any success?
I add Vodka to my color. It makes it dry nicer. Doesn't seem to run. Good luck!
I also use vodka.
I also mix vodka with the coloring. It thins the color a bit but evaporates quickly enough that you avoid the sticky drippy problem.
Great! Will try the vodka; thank you so much!!
In addition to the vodka being added I also use the Americolor white and add it to other colors in order to get pastel colors without having them too sheer. HTH
