Hope this helps!

Here is what I found online:

Edible Paints
Brush-On Colors:
These are ready-to-use edible decorating paints that add vivid color finishes to plain fondant shapes. Just pour the paint into the Color Tray, then brush on to fondant-covered cake or fondant shapes. In seconds, you can add brilliant designs in a rainbow of bright colors.

Look no further... here they are
EDIBLE PAINTSBLUE Brush-On<br>Edible Paint<br>Ready-To-Use

Note from Editor:
I keep one of each color in my
refrigerator -- so fun to color up
dessert treats anytime and quickly.

Painting techniques are very simple,
even for the person who thinks they
cannot draw or paint


1. Bevel Tip:
Use the bevel tip brush to create exciting shading effects.

2. Square Tip:
Use the square tip brush for lace-look brush embroidery. Draw design with Icing Writer, then pull outlines toward center with brush.

3. Round Tip:
Use the round tip brush to paint pretty free-hand designs.

Hi Kristina 67!

I made a Collet´s cake and learned there how to paint fondant. The teacher taught us to use gel paste colors (we used AmeriColor) and dissolve with a little water ( or you can use vodka or lemon extract). I used a flat paintbrush to paint that cake, but the kind of paintbrush depends on what you want to paint. (you can see that cake in my gallery, it´s the topsy-turvy cake).

Thanks everyone! I didn't even think to "google"it. I can't wait to give it a try. Do you think any paste color would work? I can only buy wilton brand here locally.
