Hello there!
Currently, cake making is a passionate hobby of mine but I would eventually like to get more serious about it. I'm looking to get an airbrushing kit and wondering what brand to look for or ones to avoid. I don't need a "top of the line" model, but I also don't want a "cheap" one.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

I have a Grex airbrush and really like it. It's the only one I've ever used so I'm not sure if it's a top of the line model or what. But I used it for the first time in a class with Rick Reichart from Cakelava and it seemed like everyone in the class liked it. You can buy the whole kit (compressor, airbrush, hose, etc, etc) from Icing Inspirations in Kitchener. Pretty sure they have free shipping

Haven't ever used one but I am thinking about getting one myself. I have been looking on eBay and found some Wilton airbrushes with compressor and colors for about $150.00. Since Wilton is such a big name don't think they would put their name on something that was junk. Check it out! If you get one let me know which one and how you like it.

Hey all, thanks for your ideas. I ended up going with a Salon Air Master Model tc-60 mini air compressor. I got it on Ebay. It came with three different airbrushes, 2 extra hoses and 12 small bottles of assorted colours. It was about about $160 with shipping (international).
Its definitely going to take some practice getting used to the subtleties of the airbrush but I think it will be a great tool to have.
