OK, by "spray painting" I don't mean tagging; I mean adjusting the color of fondant with a coat of Color Mist Food Color Spray. You may recall, I'm in the midst of a quest to create red fondant from scratch, and this is the latest step in that endeavor. I slapped some of the brick red fondant I wound up with on a cake, and decided to give the Food Color Spray a try. As with any spray painting project, there will be overspray, so I came up with a way to mask the silver cake board. Get a large sheet of paper (for this 6" cake an 11x17" sheet of paper was appropriate), a pen, scissors, and the pan the cake was baked in.
When you have the size right, slide the paper on over the cake, down to the board.
In a fit of urban whimsy, I felt the need to tag this cake. I went online and found this free graffiti font, Street Soul.
I printed out a 6x6" image of it and laid it over the cake. I traced over it with a ballpoint pen, just hard enough to leave a faint imprint in the fondant.Wilton Deluxe Gum Paste Tool Set:
