Can I paint on SMBC?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 

After 2 months of my daughter telling me she wants a specific cake for my granddaughters birthday she texts me about an hour ago and asks if I can change it to a night sky. She absolutely hates fondant and the cake has SMBC.  Is there anyway I can paint on it? If so with what medium. I have Googled and searched on here and found nothing...

 

BTW the party is at 1130 tomorrow...

Probably airbrushing. If you don't have an airbrush and can't get it locally, you can try the food coloring spray. I think Duff has one at Michaels and Wilton has one.

You could use silver dragees in different sizes for the stars.

You don't think I could mix powdered food coloring with vodka and do it?

Sorry, I've never done it. I just looked up some old posts and it seems you cannot airbrush it either. http://cakecentral.com/t/605461/imbc-anyone-paint-on-it

Can you just mix up a bit more frosting and color it, then put a thin layer of the colored icing over your white?


Good luck!

I painted on buttercream after it was crusted with no problem.Just need a soft bristle and don't press too hard. I painted flowers and leaves.

Nope. It's fat based...it will just bead up and.look awful. You could use a spatula and apply it that way, meaning color some smbc, and patch it on, paint with a spatula if you get my meaning.

That's all I use. I color it using powdered food coloring but I never tried decorating it with anything but Fondant. She made some Wendy & Peter Pan silhouettes that she wants to fly through the night sky. I was hoping there was some way to paint the scene on :-(

Good lu

 

That or using fondant pieces for the moon and stars is what I am going to have to do. I tried printing out a scene to get made into an edible image but my printer is out of color ink...lol

Use fondant. Tell her like any other client, that you need to use fondant to achieve an acceptable result. Pick the oh so offensive fondant off. Geez Louise...lol.
