I have been wanting to try airbrushing for a while now and my husband bought me one for our anniversary!! I've only used it once and before then I had never used an airbrush on cakes. I decorated a birthday cake for my cousin and airbrushed it in a camo print. It turned out great. The next day it was speckled. I'm not sure what may have caused it. I didn't get the airbrush too close. One thing I did do, which I seen mixed opinions on, was use the Wilton food color gels and diluted it with clear vanilla extract. I have since bough the Americolor food coloring because I've read it works better. I've not tried it yet. I guess my questions are. Why did the buttercream speckle? and also would it be better to dilute with something alcohol based or water?
