Project Cake: Part 9 – Fondant, Airbrushing and Stacking

When airbrushing fondant-covered cakes, go one to two shades lighter than the desired result. The colour will continue to darken and develop overnight as the surface of the fondant dries.

To prevent uneven blotches, always dust off an excess icing sugar or cornstarch, and ensure any residual grease or buttercream is wiped off the surface of the fondant.

Also keep in mind, as colour is only sitting ontop of the surface of the fondant, it may be difficult to hide repairs.
