hi there,

my son decided to be funny (not) and flick water at me.  but it also got on my cake that i had only sprayed an hour beforehand with silver paint.  it has left about 6 spots.  i tried to spray over gently, but i can still see them.  i can hide them a bit with spaghetti (i am making another pot of spaghetti and meatballs), but not sure if i can hide them all.  to make matters worse, i am entering the cake in a show in two days!!!!!!!

i should mention that the spots are on painted modelling chocolate.

hope you have some ideas people.

AI've never been able to successfully fix that. I have however fixed the situation. Since this is a pot, it needs a bit of dimension. When I made my Lowcountry boil pot, I wet my hands with a bit of vodka or water and rub gently. That will make it smoothable.

I'm sure this isn't making sense. The slight variation in color is a good thing especially compared to the obvious spots if you leave it.

update..... i couldn't really fix the water spots, so i hid the marks as best i could.  ultimately the cake won first prize at the country show for novelty cake so the judges must not have noticed them!
