I've thought of more questions about this cake from www.pinkcakebox.com. For the zebra stripes, I want to cut out white fondant and then airbrush it black. With the cake being round, I guess I need to put it on right after airbrushing so it will not dry flat. Are there any other ways to do it? Will the airbrushing run onto the white part of the cake? Would it be easier to make black mmf? Thanks
I'd use black fondant for that cake.
Not using airbrush yet so I don't know if it'll be easier.
I second that...whenever I need black I just buy black satin ice.
The airbrushing woiuld work fine as long as you don't hold it in one spot too long. It isn't hard to know when your holding too long because you will see it build up before it runs. The spray will cling nicely and safely with normal pressure. I do it all the time. If you don't think it's dark enuff with your first layer of spray, wait till it dries and go over again. You can speed up the drying with a fan for large areas. If you did 'run' tho..you'd be able to do a quick clean with a little vodka and paper towel. Another option are the edible markers too.
