The best color i like is Americolor because it is in a squeeze bottle and the color is more of a true color
carmijok, you have cake on your post of bc iced cakes where you painted them? I would love to start doing that concept...i have carpal tunnel and cannot use fondant, so i have to smooth all my cakes to get that fondant look but i wanted to start trying new things as far as stenciling goes....you can respond back on my private message if you like since this is originally hannah's posting.
