To master using the airbrush in cake decorating can be just as challenging and frustrating as any other tool. It’s a matter of practice, discipline and strict attention to detail and perfection.

Like many other tools in the bakery, if you’re creative enough, you can efficiently use them for multiple tasks. For instance, the pressured air generated by these machines can be great for texturizing a buttercream cake. The texture can be a wonderful final touch to piped water or grass on a quarter sheet cake.

First, empty and clean the airbrush thoroughly. Next you will lightly texturize the area of icing or butter cream. To avoid discoloring the cake, it is important to make sure the airbrush is completely empty and clean.

The texture can imitate the whitecaps of a wave or a patch of grass. Done correctly, it can add a very natural final touch to your decorated cake.
