With short blasts, the airbrush gun sprayed bursts of red paint on the blue and white surface of the bag. Moments later, Janet Brown arranged potato chips near the open bag so the chips appeared to be spilling out.
But the chips were not real potato chips. They were specially shaped dried fondant pieces and were part of her cake, which looked like a bag of chips.
“When I work with cakes, I work with the real thing,” Brown said. She had put a real potato chip bag beside her chocolate cake to use as a model for her cake sculpting.
