Hi I am still new at cake decorating. I realize after a few of the cakes I have done that I really need to get an airbrush my cakes look clean.

My question is...Is there a certain brand or model that is better than another? Are the hard to use? Is there a certain kind of color you use in them? Any tips on how to use one? And Where did you buy your airbrush?

I know too many questions...but the truth is I am clueless about this and am about to purchase one...and I want to get the best price and best equipment. I want to make sure I am making a wise investment! Any wisdom given will be appreciated!!! Thank You! icon_wink.gif

I'm not sure of the brand name but the machine is a little orange thing with a single knob on the front. It's small and very quiet.

I bought a Pegasus model from the ICES show and it's awesome...I paid about $99 with the "brush"

I have an airmaster by Kopykake..I love it!! You use airbrush only colors and most cake decorating companies make their own line of colors like Americolor or chefmaster.You should only use them as watering down gel pastes etc can clog the airbrush.I bought mine right from Kopykake.It depends on who you talk to...everyone has their own preference of brand etc.They takes a while to get used too but the result is awesome!!
