Hello all!

It seems that hand-painted details are super popular right now and I'd like to know if anyone has any suggestions for brushes/brush sets that you use to paint on your cakes.

Also - is there any such thing as food-safe brushes? It seems unwise to use a brush that's meant for use with real paints, as you have no idea what chemicals are in the brush and could potentially be leached onto whatever you're painting.

So tell me, how do you do it? Thanks!

Use good artists' brushes that are made for either oils or acrylics, they make them for different types of paints or for both. As long as they don't drop hairs onto the cake you're fine. You don't need to worry about chemicals, you'll be washing the brushes a lot, Just worry about using a cheap brush that will drop hairs all over the place.
