Please help !! does anyone know what is the best type of material to use if i am trying to do a cake splatter affect on a fondant cake? is food color mixed with vodka ok? or will that eat through fondant do to moisture? I am so lost has anyone done a paint splatter affect on a fondant cake? what did you use? PLEASE HELP
Yes, thin your color w/a bit of vodka. No it won't eat thru the fondant. vodka evaporates very quickly :)
If you have air brush color that is ideal just out of the bottle. The best way I've found to get a spatter effect is to use an (new) toothbrush:) Just dip in the color and shake it out. If you want smaller spatters, then run a comb thru the toothbrush or use you fingers.
AIf you want the paint to look real, you have to use piping gel. That way you are not loosing the 3d effect real paint would give. I just posted 2 different recipes in another post. But basically you mix 1 cup (240ml) liquid with 150g granulated sugar, boil, stir in 2-4 tbsp (depending how thick you want it to be) of cornstarch (premixed with liquid), boil until thick. And add food coloring (only needs small amounts). Cover your work surface well, load a brush with"paint" and swing it over your cake Andy Warhol style - fun!
AThank you girls so, much I truly appreciate it i will try both methods to see which I like better :) thanks again to you both
AI did it with white chocolate melts. The gel food coloring well make the chocolate seize but add a little shortening and it softened back up. I then dipped a spoon in the chocolate and splattered it on the cake. The customer said it was delicious!
Post picture, please.
