Cake Boss Airbrush #Giveaway

My husband sort of laughs at me when I say I'm not very artistic. I think it's true. Or mostly true. You see, I can't really draw realistic things very well.

But I'm fine with abstract swirls and colors and swooshes.

So when I received an airbrush kit from Cake Boss, I was excited, enthusiastic, and just a little bit scared.

Would I make a mess of things, or would it be acceptable? I wasn't really expecting anything stunning or professional or pretty, or anything beyond "that's not too bad."

What I ended up with, on the first try, way wayyyyy beyond my expectations. And it was a heck of a lot of fun. And it was a lot faster than I expected. I whipped through a dozen cupcakes and looked around for something else I could airbrush.

Luckily, the dog was moving too fast, or she might have had a pretty gold gloss on her.

Before I used the airbrush, I did a little research online about what kind of food coloring to use. There are some that are formulated for airbrushes, but some people said that regular food coloring was okay, too. I decided that since this was a brand-new airbrush and I wanted the best results, I'd buy airbrush coloring. It was easy enough to find, I picked up a few basic colors and some pearl and gold as well.

I frosted some cupcakes with buttercream, let the buttercream dry long enough until it had a nice crust, then had some fun with colors. And I was more than pleased with the results.

These were no doubt the prettiest cupcakes I've ever made, and every one was a little bit different, which made them much more interesting, right? And. as a side note, this was an amazingly good chocolate cupcake recipe, too!

The cupcake recipe is HERE.

And keep in mind, this was my very first try, with no training and no instruction. I just twirled and sprayed and twirled and sprayed.

If I can do this, anyone can. YOU can.

The buttercream recipe is HERE.

Who's it for: Anyone who wants to have fun decorating cakes, cupcakes, cookies ...

Pros: Easy to use. Fun! Fun! Wheeee!

Cons: If you don't do a lot of decorating, an airbrush is an investment.

Source: I received an airbrush for myself from the manufacturer, and they are supplying one for the giveaway as well.
