Just this morning I started airbrushing a fondant covered cake and noticed that it started to form beads in certain spots.  I am using Americolor brand.  Has this ever happened to anyone or does anyone know why this happens?  Thanks for your help.

did you have the cake in the fridge before you airbrushed it? If it was cold it could be condensation beading up on it. I found out the hard way on a buttercream cake I airbrushed and put in the fridge after.

Yes! I airbrushed it right out of the fridge :( then I tried wiping off those areas that had the condensation and now I have a bunch of streaks.  I'm going to airbrush it again, once the cake is at room temperature this time....hopefully I can hide the streaks.  Thank you!
