"spraypainting" buttercream red?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Has anybody used any of the red canned spray colors (Wilton Colormist, PME, Duff's Grafitti, ect) on buttercream? If so, what brand did you use and what were your results? Thanks so much!!

I just bought a wilton spray can but have not used it yet so I am hoping people here will share whether this works or not.

In the next column over there are reviews after reading the reviews they say the color that doesn't work well is black but that green and the pearl color ones turned out nice

I bought the pink color and now am afraid of using it. I may just take it back and get my money back for it. Thanks for the info.

I've used the PME canned color on bc and if worked great.  I would not waste my $ on Wilton.  The W spray colors have gotten bad to horrid reviews ever since they hit the shelves.

Unless you're just wanting to have a sprayed effect, why do it at all?   I think all the sprays have a weird smell to them that doesn't go away after you put them on.  If you want your BC to be red, but don't want it solid just do what I do and frost your cake with your regular BC then get it good and cold and hard, and put a few thin layers of highly colored BC over the top (refrigerating between layers to harden).   It works great.  I do it all the time.  No nasty taste or colored teeth and tongues.  I recently did pink over chocolate BC for a 1st birthday cake!

If I am ever on life support, unplug me...

Then plug me back in.  See if that works!

I recently bought and used the metallic silver and pearl sprays from Wilton and they looked--and worked--great!  I have also used the red, blue, orange and black and have never had any problems with them!  I would definitely buy them again!

Or you could do what thousands of modelbuilders do, when they need to spray something that doesn't come in a spray-bomb: invest in an airbrush. If you just need to lay down color, it doesn't even have to be an expensive airbrush.
