I bought a science project board from Michael's to use as a backdrop (very helpful). I also use picmonkey.com it's very user friendly.
I bought mine at Michael's - it is branded by Duff Goldman. I really like it, it's small but does what I need it to do. It takes regular airbrush colors (like Americolor). HTH (Looks like you can by it directly from DG and cheaper than I paid at Michael's.) http://www.duff.com/products/decorate/cake-decorating-airbrush
I agree with Anna. I can't think of a way to make them less mushy. I have done that before and had to add cake.   Maybe someone else has a brilliant idea....

Thank you Jason, I guessed I missed that.
Thank you, I was just fixing to post a link!!!! Apparently not everyone in Florida is aware of this. (I think I posted in another discussion the year 2012, oh well) 
I admit that did not read all of the posts b/c they were off subject so I hope this helps. (1) I am from Florida and Florida passed the Cottage Food Law in July 2011 so it is legal for her to sell her cakes from home. (2) I agree with the poster that suggested you reschedule as the date conflicts with non business hours for you. The customer has the right to check it out and the OP doesn't have a problem showing it. I certainly wouldn't want a customer coming into my...
