Hi -- Im trying to make the cake pictured below, and I'm wondering if there is any way I can directly apply the choocolate transfer sheets to the fondant-covered cake without using chocolate. Is that possible? Does anyone have experience with this.

I haven't tried it yet, but there is a very tiny iron used for sewing that some are using to transfer designs onto fondant. I do have the iron and I set the heat too high for a transfer to gumpaste and made a mess, so I suggest using the lowest setting.

A friend tried to use a regular iron on the lowest setting. This did not work out well at all! icon_smile.gif

I'm sure someone on CC has done it and has photos of their work. I wish I could be of more help.
