Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great way to add a sky thats not just all blue. You can move the paper towel down further to get less clouds, and make it lighter towards the horizon. If you use the other piece of the paper towel (the negative piece)and purple color mist you can make the sky look stormy, perfect for halloween cakes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love using color mist on cakes for multiple designs. The clouds are one of my favorites and gives the cake a custom bakery look. I also have used the spray for a graffiti cake and it turned out cute. Just make sure to move the can evenly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I used this on my sons first birthday cake. It was the first time I used color mist and I would recommend you spray something else first to get it down. But it was really easy after that and turned out perfect!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is such an easy technique, and works well for 2-D and 3-D cakes. I placed it as a background for a 3D cake, and put kites in front of it. The customer lovedd it :)
