I'm doing a three tier "sunset" cake for this weekend and have the orange and yellow Wilton color spray to get the sunset color effect. The last time I used the color spray and then added decorations to the buttercream, it left a white outline around the decoration. I tried not pushing them in so far to the icing but you could still tell where the color spray was and where the white buttercream underneath was around it. I'm going to be using chocolate transfers to create a ranch scene and want to make sure that white outline isn't there. Is there something I can do - or should I just mix yellow and orange coloring into my buttercream instead?

I have never been satisfied with Wilton Color Spray, (as can be said for many Wilton products). I have finally decided to save up for an airbrush to get the effects I want. Sorry I can't give you any advice, just commiserate with you. Good luck.

i have used the color spray and the best i advice i can give you to avoid the color is instead of using white buttercream color it to compliment the cake. i actually have done a cake that is in the color theme you are probably looking for using the wiltons color spray.. i mixed a bit of golden yellow to my buttercream and that made a deeper yellow then used red color spray to spray around the sides to create more dimension to the cake itself so it wouldnt look like cheese lol.. i hope this helps!!
