I am making an Elmo cake for my daughter's birthday and would like to use a FBCT (design from her party napkins). I don't want to wait until the morning of the party to make and to freeze the design -- just in case it doesn't work out (breakage, etc...). Can a FBCT be made and frozen 3 or 4 days before actually applying it to the cake? I know a FBCT doesn't take all that long to freeze, so if it's frozen for a longer period of time, are there any greater risks that it won't turn out the way it should?
Any help/advice is appreciated since I've only done one transfer in the past, and that was a couple of years ago.
In my experience, the longer your freeze it, the better it holds up. Go ahead and make it up a few days early. Just make sure that after it has frozen, that you put it in an airtight container so that it doesn't absorb smells from your freezer. HTH!
I made my first one recently for my son's b-day. I made it about 6 days before the party (I was worried it might not turn out and I'd need time to do it over). Anyway, I liked the way it looked, so I kept it in the freezer. It looked/tasted great 6 days later when it finally went onto his cupcake cake. HTH
I am new to this FBCT how exactly do you do this? I normally just free hand everything onto the cake directly...but is this something easier to do? Any help or instructions PLEASE!
There is a great FBCT tutorial in the articles section. But hey, if you can free hand, you don't need it!
