So i just bought an airbrush kit. Th affect looks really good on fondant even after i would freeze the cake again or refridgerate it. So i tried it on a BC cake, did the came thing, froze/refridgerate it. The only time i took out the cake was when it was ready to go. The BC cake was color was dripping into dots and very noticable. Ive seen cakes at a supermarket that's been airbrushed and look fine in room temp. Did i miss out on something with airbrushing?

Yes..The condensation from the fridge to the warm room is causing the color to turn to liquid droplets..I actually have had this happen if I freeze a airbrushed cake so I'm surprised it didn't happen after you thawed the cake.It also depends on the BC recipe...some recipes have a lot of liquid like milk or water and they may be seperating in the cold to warm thaw.
