I just got a order for a Bratz cake & it's too late to order figures & get them before Saturday. I do not have access to an edible image to make images of the charaters, so I was thinking about just taking the cut-outs and getting them laminated & attatching to lolli sticks & inserting into the cake. Any other suggestions? Or are they any short cuts to making an edible image??? Thanks.
Hi you can always make a buttercream icing plaque (the instructions for this are in the article section on cake central.)
WM prints edible images for around $10 but not sure if they will sell a Bratz image since it's a licensed image.
I have printed images and laminated them and put them on cakes - just seal it really well so that the icing doesn't bleed through.
Maybe try a frozen buttercream transfer......there is an article on here that explains how.
Thanks for the info, I'll check the buttercream image link. I wanted to keep the 3D effect as if I had the figures, so I'll play around with laminated cut-outs tomorrow to see that will work also.
Or you could make chocolate transfers for the characters. I'm not up to par with some of the other cake decorators on CC, but even a newbie like me found them easy to make (they're on my pooh cake)! I used the tutorial on this site and didn't have any problems!
Safeway does EIs too for $10. You could place one of those on a cut-to-fit chocolate plaque that would be able to stand up.
I've done a choc. transfer Bratz cake (in my photos). I think choc. transfers are pretty easy & impressive. Plus you have the added bonus of something "extra" to eat. If you want a more 3-D look, you could stick them on the sides of the cake.
