Any thoughts on how to do graffiti writing on a cake? Cake due next week and client asked if I could write happy birthday in graffiti--wants buttercream. Thank you!!
For the graffiti look you need to spray the color. I would guess most people do that with an airbrush. You can get spray can colors now (Michael's sells the Duff brand) which would probably work. I've never used them, so I can't say how they work, maybe someone else here has actually tried them.
If you're worried about spray writing you could cut a template out of poster board then spray through the template. Don't worry about being too precise, however, as some overspray is part of the look. I would buy an extra can to practice first, but that's me.
Oh and since they want buttercream, just make sure you use a crusting buttercream and let it dry a bit before you spray. Also test how close to hold the can (preferrably on a different cake). You wouldn't want the spray to be so powerful that it disturbs the buttercream.
