Hi All!

I am wondering if you can decorate your cake in white fondant and then paint on the color (s) you would like? is it possible to paint fondant? and if so, how do you go about this?

Has anyone tried this before? I was looking at a suitcase cake that had a very antiqued look; it had a brushed appearance, which i know does not occur when you properly use fondant. I liked the 'old' effect. any comments?

Absolutely... i use Americolor gel colors just like paints... squirt out a few on a palette and go to town!

I do! I love to use my airbrush paint and a paintbrush. You can also airbrush the whole thing. icon_wink.gif
