I airbrushed a cake navy blue this week and loved the look that I got. In this particular case, I was also the one to cut the cake. My hands are still blue and might be so all week :)) I advised everyone not to handle or eat the fondant, but I hate to have to do that.


Does anyone know a trick for setting the colors after airbrushing so that they won't rub off on everything that contacts the cake?

AI've just found that it dries over time. Like over night. How long before did you airbrush it? Maybe it was in the fridge and the condensation was making the color come off?

AI always let it dry by itself for a whil and then if I find it's still sticky or coming off I just spray it with just air from my airbrush. Works great.
