Hello everyone! I've been asked to make a sheet cake that is covered in buttercream, but she wants a leopard-print design on it. I've painted this design before on fondant (easy) but have never done it on BC! Can it even be done? I don't have an airbrush, although I'm seriously thinking of investing in one (too late for this order). I can tint the background color a soft tan, but how do I make the rest of the design???? Any help would be greatly appreciated. icon_smile.gif

If you are painting on crusting buttercream you can use a soft brush and it will work. If non-crusting buttercream, it is a bit more difficult.
