You heard me! Edible paints!
Super easy to make and kinda awesome! OH the possibilities!
This little brain child came from the super ha-mazing Amber from Top Tier Cakes for All Occasions Go check her page out and give her some LIKE love <3
She has named this little method the creamy powder method! She has this awesome little tut on how you can easily mix up some ACP (ambers creamy powder) and use it for stenciling!
WHAATTT?? How cool is that!
The steps are super easy!
Mix up the powder and white vegetable shortening of your choice.
Attach your stencil to your fondant
Dab on some ACP with a facial sponge, make sure you buff off the excess. If your layer is too thick it will shmear all ovah the place and we don’t want that!
Remove the stencil and VOILA!!

[responsive-box][/responsive-box] Supah simple edible stenciling and guess what? You can save the excess! Since it’s just powdered color and vegetable shortening, no need to toss it out. Just seal in a little container and you’re good to go
So this got me thinking! And you know how dangerous that can be! What else could These fancy paints be used for??
I started playing around with this myself and really enjoy the smoothness of the paint and it got me thinking, what oil based product is SUPER hard to color?
Wait for it…
I cannot count the amount of times I have needed to add some dimension to modeling chocolate sculptures and have really been at a loss because I am not the best airbrush user and dusts tend to get stuck in all the nooks and crannies of the chocolate, leaving a kind of rough texture.
So basically this stuff is like beautiful, smooth paint that works AWESOME on modeling chocolate!
I decided to test it out on this display cake I made last year. The edible oil paints worked perfectly to shade the eyes, lips even hair!
I think I’m in love <3
