My friend recently asked me to do her wedding cake since I'm offering it at the cheapest rate (I've only ever done one wedding cake, so I don't feel right charging more). Anyhow, her colors are dark blue and gold and I'll probably be doing a MMF cake. There is NO WAY I'm dying the fondant, so we'll either do white with color accents OR I'd love to airbrush it gold but I want to see if anyone has done this.
Is it safe to do over the WHOLE cake?
Does it dry?
Does it taste funny?
Anything I should know?
Anyone NOT recommend this?
Thanks so much!!
I would reccomend instead, if you plan to make MMF, that the color is mixed in while the marshmallows are in the 'soupy' state. I have done this and have achieved deep, vibrant hues with ease (that did not taste badly!)-- no worries about kneading in color endlessly.
And in regards to color: there is no real 'gold' color straight out of the bottle-- I would reccomend a warm golden-yellow fondant finished with gold Luster Dust to amp up the gold-ness (sorry for the repetition, haha.)
Navy and gold sound like beautiful wedding colors-- best of luck with the cake and don't forget to post a pic when its done!
I agree that airbrushing the entire cake for color is not a great idea if you are not very experienced at it.
