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. 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.
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.
I looks very nice!!!!
I never done a chocolate transfer, but yours looks very well done.
Wow! Looks fantastic - that is a lot of detailed work!
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!
I think it looks great. I have wanted to try a chocolate transfer myself but haven't yet. You did a great job.
Wow-great job with the chocolate transfer! I am doing a cake with some in a couple of weeks and I cannot wait!
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.
Well my four year old is sitting here next to me peering over my shoulder. Her comment when she saw it were:
"OOOOOHHHH!!! That's a cute cake!!!!"
So, you have her approval! lol (I think it's pretty cute too.)
