Hi, a few days ago I was watching an episode of CHALLENGE on Food Network. I noticed that the contestants were using a spray on their cake. I managed to read "Velocity" on the spray can.
I was wondering if anyone knows what this is, and what is it used for.
was it like this??
My guess is it was probably canned air you were seeing them use. They use canned air on chocolate pieces (because the canned air is SUPER cold) it hardens the chocolate immediately instead of waiting minutes for it to set up. Very useful when trying to attach flowers, etc. w/ melted chocolate.
I look for food safe items, that is , from the food industry for the most part. Look up chococool and chocofreeze.
This is not the can I saw, but I have no idea if it's similar.
I didn't see them using it on chocolate, they were using it on fondant after decorating the cake. I thought it was something to give a smooth or glossy look to the fondant, but I'm not sure.
I think they were using aerosol color to paint the fondant (the same idea as using the airbrush). Wilton sells several colors and there are probably many other vendors.
I'm sorry, but no, they were using an airbrush for that matter. The "velocity" spray was used at the end, after finishing all the decorations. Could it be some kind of glue, or maybe something to "erase" the powdered sugar spots from Fondant?
I wonder if it's a kind of shiny dust. I didn't see the program, will have to wait for a rerun.
It wasn't shiny. I'm so sorry, I feel bad for not having more info on the product.
Global Sugar Art has a lacquer finishing spray you can use on chocolate and fondant and etc..... maybe that's what it was? I can't find "velocity" anywhere online but I assume its the same general idea...
It looks cool. Its $30 tho!!!!
Thanks for the link, I think this is the closest thing to what I saw.
