Painted Barn  on Cake Central

Painted Barn

I made this cake from a photo given to me by a customer. It is a picture of one of the barns on their family ranch. He wanted it for a family reunion. It is buttercream colored and painted with a paint brush. It is my first order for one of these. I was so excited even though it took me most of the day to do it.

I love the painting. What is the technique to paint on buttercream? What kind of colors do you use? Do you mix the colors with anything?

I cover the cake with a base coat of white buttercream. I get some small jars and put different colors of buttercream. I sit down with my paint brushes that I bought for food purposes only and paint like it is a canvas.
