Food Spray vs Airbrush

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone,

I find this forum very useful for unconventional questions and specifically related to baking and cooking. 

I am a cake decorator and wand to tap into making entremets and chocolates.

I want to buy Airbrush and Food spray for that velvet effect.

I have a few questions if you experts can find time to answer them.

1. Do I need both of them, airbrush for fondant covered cake and relatively thin stream for delicate work. Food spray for chocolates and entremets?


2. Both of them I heard have compressors, do I have to buy for both of them or one will be enough? Does it come with the respective product I buy?


3. What is the best yet reasonable brand for airbrush, i am looking at kopykake at the moment and for food spray i am thinking of wragner or kebler? which is better in terms of usability and pricing?


4. Can cocoa butter be replaced by any other form of fat anf where can i purchase ir?

thanks in advance.

I bought a paint sprayer at a box store for chocolate, it works ok, the wagner is the best though.  I bought a small compressor for my air brush for about 100 bucks from a hobby website.  The sprayer plugs into the wall, so I use my compressor only for air brush. Cocoa butter is easy to find on Amazon, I wouldn't even attempt to use anything but.  Hope my short answer helps :)  Happy Caking!
