Hi everyone, so I have a client that asked me to make this cake.


And I'm having a hard time trying to figure out what is used for the "splatter" type effect.  It looks too thick to be paint but I don't know how I could get say a gold sugar to stay without using some sort of glue which on airbrush would be a disaster. Lol any help Or advice would be greatly appreciated 

thanks :)

It does look very much like gold sanding sugar on an airbrushed cake.

Maybe they added the gold sugar while the airbrushed paint was still a bit damp? I'm not sure on this one, sorry!

This one is tough! I'd definitely do a test run on a dummy. I'd let the airbrush paint dry, and then re-dampen the cake with the airbrush machine using water or simple syrup, and throw the gold sanding sugar on there.

Oh I wish I could find that other post regarding this same cake :( It was about a week - 10 days ago.   Maybe you could do a search......  There were some good suggestions    As I remember one suggestion was to use sanding (lg grain) sugar mixed w/gold dust.
