I do not have an airbrush but would like to do some light airy stripes on the top of a sheet cake.

Is there a way to lightly brush a light color dust onto crusted buttercream without looking splotchy?

Thanks so much,

I've seen gingham patterns done before using stencils. I imagine you could brush petal dust on....?

I've painted on crusting buttercream with airbrush colors. I don't see why you can't do it with dust.

If you want to try it out, spread some buttercream on some wax paper and let it crust. Then play with doing it different ways to get the look you are going for.

You can buy Wilton spray color in an aerosol can.
