Here's my latest attempt at a Chocolate Transfer. Of course if you can't tell I absolutely LOVE "Frosting with Flair". I think I stare at her website for a half hour every day. icon_biggrin.gif So if you think my cake looks similar, I admit, that's what I'm shooting for. I have more pics at my website if you want to see other cakes I've done. Haven't been very diligent about loading them up on CC. icon_smile.gif

OK, so I know my border is a little uneven. I'll have to work on that. I only had one air bubble this time and it was right at Dora's mouth. Darn! But all in all, I think I did pretty good.

For all of you trying to do transfer work, someone gave me a fantastic idea that saved me boatloads of time. Put all your bagged chocolate on a heating pad. After a few mins. it's all melty. And while you're working, it doesn't get hard again. I keep all my chocolate in reusable decorating bags and then for my outlining I use parchment triangles.

that does really look great! i like using choc transfers too,they're so easy to do.i've used them on my "batman,x-ray,and safari" cakes.i've also used the choc to make the ladders for my fire truck and the flames for the "grill" cake.i just need more practice on keeping my hands from being ~shaky~ while doing my tranfers! icon_cry.gif

I think it looks great. I have wanted to try a chocolate transfer myself but haven't yet. You did a great job.

Thanks everyone! They're so much fun to do. I'm not real good at making small detailed work yet, but I think I just need some more practice. Anyway, thanks for the happy comments. thumbs_up.gif
