Will this be a 3D carved cake? I have one coming up next month and am also interested. One of my suppliers has a transformer add on and I received an invitation to a transformer party. So I am debating whether this cake will be a carved cake or a flat one with a frosting sheet of the transformer on it.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

Flat or 3D either way. Although it would be nice to make a 3D one. Mabe Optimusprimes mask. But a flat one will do. Im not so good at the gel transfer method, it always comes out messy.
are the icing sheets transparent enough to trace a picture? Also, I heard people mention edible rice paper is that any good. What does it tast like? is it noticable under the icing and is it transparent enough to trace an image?
Thanks

There are several transformer cakes on the CC website. Just search for transformers. There are several really cool optimus prime cakes when he is in vehicle mode(a semi-truck). I have done two doing a FBCT that turned out okay. I am new to decorating. My son is obssesed with transformers so he keeps me up on all of them. I will attach a pictureof one I did a few weeks ago. Good luck! I look forward to seeing what you do.

Here's what I did I baked a sheet cake and then printed a pattern on wax paper and then carve the sheet cake. I iced the cake gray, and rolled fondant I traced the pattern on in and layed on the cake I hope it makes sense.

ok so it's not letting me attach pictures right now but it is in my photos.

I carved a baracade cake in car mood, or you can do the old school bumble bee and use the wilton car pan as a start, you can also print out the logo and use as a template and use it to cut outt he shapes on fondant or gumpaste. There tons you can do! My Husband is a Toy Collector, so we had tons of Transformer to model our cake from

nhanifan Posted 25 Jun 2008 , 5:56pm

I know that this is not as fancy as some of the other cakes but I did one for a friend and I just Googled Transformers in the images section and then traced the logos and did them with color flow. Plus this was last summer and not very many people on here had done a Transformer cake yet.

Here is my Barracade transformer cake, from the move, it's a decepticon in police car form, with lilttle Wickwicky in the front, but I think only true Transformers fans like my family would recognize this. You can't see it on the picture but it say "to punish and enslave" on the car near the rear.

Ruth0209 Posted 26 Jun 2008 , 1:33am

I don't know how to attach a picture here, but you can see my Optimus Prime cake in my pictures. It's one of the coolest cakes I've done so far. Hope you like it.

debster Posted 26 Jun 2008 , 1:38am

I don't think mine is here but I just got a picture from a coloring book and did a FBCT . Good luck and post your picture, I see some nice ones on here.

ncbert Posted 26 Jun 2008 , 1:39am

Ruth0209 it is very nice and so big , the kids must have loved it.
Boy , I must sound like such a newbie, but what is FBCT? lol

mommy2djb Posted 26 Jun 2008 , 11:52am

FBCT = frozen butter cream transfer

mommy2djb Posted 26 Jun 2008 , 11:54am

Thanks icon_biggrin.gif ! I find that pretty or very elegant cakes gets more attention here on CC, as soon as I throw some testetorone on a cake like with barricade and my Witch King cake it hardly get any attention, unless you are a die hard fan like we are of Transformers and Tolkien...

Maria_Campos Posted 26 Jun 2008 , 12:16pm

I mean when you compare my cake to the real thing I thought I did pretty good

mommy2djb Posted 26 Jun 2008 , 12:23pm

That is not "pretty good". It's AWESOME! icon_smile.gif

I did a Transformers cake for my little guy's 3rd bday, but it in no way compares to that!

WOW I love the whitch king cake! I am an avid Lord of The Rings fan. I have a first edition of the book se I love it I got it when I was 12 and have read it more than 20 times. Your cake brings it all to life again, lol. It will be some time before I can make cakes like the ones in your fantisy cake pics. I thought the Ring Wraiths would make a cool cake, mabe a nice FBCT of a portrait of them all riding and misted with airbrush for spookiness.

oups I posted that before I was done,lol

Maria_Campos Posted 26 Jun 2008 , 12:38pm

THAT WOULD BE awesome! The Nine on there Black and terrible Steads right in front of Mordor, with the High King on a dragon

Maria_Campos Posted 26 Jun 2008 , 12:42pm

My next attempt will be A bust of Star Scream, but the old school Star Scream wings and all icon_biggrin.gif

static Posted 26 Jun 2008 , 12:55pm

I gotta see that one when its done!
Yah the 9 in front of Mordor.
I bet there are great pics of that on google. I think Id paint it on fondand or an icing sheet, I wonder howmuch detail you can get with the FBCT method, I guess the basic portrait can be done then paint on the detail after? hmmm......
