When my bestfriend was planning her son’s 7th birthday, she showed me a cake that her son picked out. It was a dauntingly airbrushed cake! I’ve never been within 10 feet of an airbrush machine before. I told my friend right off the bat that I couldn’t do it; that her son just have to pick another (hopefully simpler) design. I thought my excuse of “I don’t own an airbrush machine” would work.
My own airbrush machine!
I guess my friend had more confidence in me than I did in myself. I decided to tackle Mt. Everest (that’s what the cake seemed like to me). Surprisingly, the machine was very easy and straightforward to use. After a couple of strokes and squirts, I got the hang of it. The cake is a 2-tier chocolate cake with creme brulee buttercream filling.
I airbrushed the flames and leaves, as well as the buttercream to make it look like waves.
