I need to paint on fondant for an upcoming, Very Important 4th birthday. I don't have access to cocoa butter. Is there a substitute? What would be the best alternative? Can one use paste colours or are the powdered colours the best?

Thanks. I just joined the site - fabulous.

To paint on anything cake...gumpaste, fondant, buttercreme, royal ect. use food coloring diluted in a little bit of vodka stir and this will be your paint. hth

Good coloring dilluted in alcohol
Dusts dilluted in alcohol
Airbrush colors
Maybe powdered colors dilluted in alcohol may work
