I've only found one book on airbrushing cakes and it wasn't terribly helpful. The class I took taught me to go from light to dark colors on cakes. (it's the opposite when you airbrush t-shirts, or so I've been told). Layer your colors (see apple cake in my pics) on that one I think I started with ivory, then gold, then two shades of green, and two shades of red until I got the depth of color I wanted. Practice mixing colors, thin with vodka or lighten with white (white always clogs the airbrush, so clean it well after). Practice, practice practice.
