Okay I found out yesterday that a friend is getting married on WEDNESDAY...and I am making her cake as a gift. (the pore girl was going to bake cookies...the day before her wedding. Could I let her do that? I think NOT!) Its going to be a small wedding so we are only doing on 2 tiers. 6in, 8in. I am hand painting a black rose outline and monogram. Simple Simple. My question is...I wanted to add a bit of color with Wilton color mist. Just on to the sides for s soft touch. Should I be spraying the mist before or after I transfer and paint my roses and monogram on? Will the mist COVER my black painted lines? If its just a bit covered I can just go over it again...but if its bad I do NOT have time to do anything over? Anyone have any quick opinions on this?


We are going for a black and white tattoo, with the color added only as ascent on the sides. I am not painting in the roses or anything.

ASpray first. The spray will dull your lines.

Okay. But will a transfer work over the color mist?

AI would spray last. You want the transfer first, then the overspray to look like it was the last thing done, like it was the only thing done actually. I hope I'm understanding correctly and making sense with my reply.

Thank you ladies for your input. I eended up changing the placement of my roses and it turned out beautiful.


on Wednesday. Being the cake lady that I am I couldn't let that happen with out offering to make a cake for them. We had so little time to get things together that the bride let me run with this one. all she told me was Roses, blue and red.  Hand painted black line roses, Wilton's color mist for the splashes of color on the sides. Marble cake iced in regular American buttercream, covered in marshmallow fondant.
