I'm doing my first FBCT, and have already outlined the picture. Problem is that the image is pretty detailed, and I had to use tip 1 to do the outline. Is that too thin of a line to do this? I'm worried that it's going to break when I try to transfer it on to the cake?? HELP! icon_cry.gif

The outlining inside the image won't hurt it if is a small tip number (see my FFA emblem in my photos because you will fill in with another color and you can build the thickness with that. If I do have to use a smaller tip I do tend to go around the outside outline again so when the image is on the cake all you see is the black.

I always put a layer over the whole image using the same color icing that the base of the cake will be. That helps the whole image become more sturdy, because I think if your entire image was only the thickness of tip #1 lines, yes, I would think there could be a good chance it would break.
