Hello everyone, 

my question is, does anyone have a certain type of paintbrush they use for painting on cakes? Natural, synthetic, etc. etc. . I'm just curious if one would work better than the other types.

Either will work just fine.  It becomes a matter of personal preference for type & price.  I like a natural hair brush with a plastic handle [no peeling paint] that isn't too expensive.  I use different shapes for different applications.

Just make sure that whatever you use it's good quality that won't drop hairs onto your cakes. I just did a video on youtube about painting on fondant and that was one of the things I was thinking about...I once did a car cake and realized that my brush was dropping tiny hairs onto the car as I was painting it. I had to go pick them all off, which was annoying.
