Splattered Paint Effect?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to achieve a "splattered paint" look as seen on this cake for an upcoming 80's themed Birthday cake. My guess is, you cover the cake with black fondant and splatter on neon airbrush color with a paintbrush? Am I far off or would you guys say this is a good way to go about this? If there's a previous post to this how-to, please feel free to point me to it! icon_smile.gif Thanks in advance!!

I'm not sure how this cake was done ,but I think I would use colored royal icing or color white chocolate to get the splatter effect .

I actually did this cake for a friends birthday party a few weeks ago. It was pretty simple, I just dyed the fondant black, then made royal icing with neon food colors added to it. I did have to water down the royal icing to get the consistency that I wanted. After that I just took a spoon full and splattered it on the cake. It's really easy, but very messy. icon_smile.gif HTH

Your best bet is to *buy* black (OR talk them into chocolate!) fondant unless you have an airbrush.

Oh, there's NO WAY I'll be coloring the fondant myself - I'll be ordering Fondx in black, please! icon_wink.gif And it sounds like the royal icing is the way to go - thanks so much for everyone's help!

Put the runny royal icing into a squeeze bottle. Drip with LIGHT pressure for the lines, and the larger drops will form the spots that the picture shows.

For those who are attempting do do this cake, I would definately use a cardboard box or tape newspaper on the cabinets and walls. It could be very messy. icon_smile.gif
