Stencilling with chocolate

Hi im decorating the wedding cake bottom and top are going to be airbrushed in pearl then I want to stencil . I like working with chocolate and or ganache but im not sure which will be better as i have sugar pearls to embellish the stencilling. Also im wondering whether the airbrushing will smudge? Any advice please

Hi Nikx, I would always recommend trying anything new on a dummy cake if you have any concerns. I’ve never airbrushed on chocolate then stenciled but my gut is telling me you have a high chance of smudging. I’d recommend ganaching a cake dummy or cake drum then giving it a go before the big day.
Best of luck
