hello everyone, im new to this forum and to cake decorating, Ive only been doing it for a month, with 5 years of just plain baking! I am taking all the Wilton courses and loving every moment of it. Id love to find out how to do a frozen buttercream image transfer, where can I find instructions to do this? I was asked to make a cake for my niece and she wants Hello Kitty on it, Id like to do the frozen transfer if I can find instructions for it icon_smile.gif

Welcome to CC! You'll love it here!

For a FBCT, you find an image you'd like to use, and print it out in reverse. Tape the image down on a flat surface and tape wax paper or plastic wrap tightly over it. The you just pipe over it, using slightly thinned BC. When the design is all done, ice some BC over the whole image for stability. Pop it in the freezer. After frozen, flip it over onto your cake and peel off the paper.
