Decorating Cakes Using the Airbrush
Perhaps the first encounter of many housewives with the airbrush is using it
to decorate cakes. When temperature-controlled ovens were introduced in the
1840's together with baking soda and baking powder, decorating cakes started
becoming popular. Traditional cake decorating is manual using piping bags and
decorating tips. Fondant, which is an icing like substance and comes in a variety
of colors also gave the baker a lot of room for creativity in molding shapes
to add to the cake as decorations. The advantage of these methods is that the
decoration is an edible part of the cake itself. The limitation on the other
hand is in the ability to provide color detail.
And then, along came the airbrush which gave the baker an excellent way of
decorating the cake in great detail and with a wider range of color shades.
The airbrush allows the baker to spray paint designs on the cake. The most important
thing to remember when decorating cakes or cookies with an airbrush is to use
only edible, food grade paint. [read
