AHi! Does anyone know if you can airbrush crusted buttercream flowers? For instance, if I piped roses, put them on a cookie sheet to rest, then airbrushed them? I'm thinking this might be a handy way to gethem done for a very "flowery" cake without coloring a bunch of different colors of icing. What do you think? I'm asking because I don't have an airbrush and can't do a test run. Thanks!
I can't believe I didn't think of this (well, I can actually!). I have to do a cake and cupcakes with tropical coloured BC flowers for tomorrow. I was playing around the other day and had some flowers done in plain BC - I use a crusting BC. I just got my airbrush and did a test, it works great!!!
I haven't done BC flowers for years, so I was a bit nervous piping strong colours direct on the cake/cupcakes. I think I will get on now with the flowers, let them crust, then colour them, then place them. Thanks for your idea!
wow, those look great! I appreciate you posting the picture. Thank you!
Keep in mind, when saturated with sprayed on color, they're more difficult to remove from the pan without breaking petal edges unless you've got time to wait for them to air dry for a couple/few more days.
I have airbrushed buttercream flowers before also. I have frozen them well wrapped too. Worked great. I have airbrushed royal icing flowers also. Never froze them. I was worried they would melt when defrosted. Anyone ever try to freeze RI decorations?
Definitely can airbrush flowers - I did all the time:) Use a crusting b'cream. If I remember right I posted a recipe on this site yrs ago for making B'cream flowers.
I also have fzn them but don't like that. One has to work soooooo fast - they start to melt instantly when removed from fzr. Most of the time I lost more then I gained:(
