Start with small, simple ones with just a couple of colors, and I'm sure you'll do fine. The martial arts studio logo in my gallery was my first chocolate transfer. It wasn't perfect, but it definitely wowed lots of people. (and it was neither small nor simple, because of the design I used)

I say that you have nothing to lose if you try it. The worst that happens is you eat your mistakes. : )

I use Candy Melts usually, because they're easier than tempering regular chocolate.

That was your 1st....that looked really good. What I am trying to do is a transformers logo I think.

How soon can you make ahead of time. cuz if that doesnt work I might just do fondant logo.... My son whants transformers...and I dont think I could do a whole transformer so I thought the logo would be the easiest.

I did mine a week ahead, and just kept it in a cool place (not in the fridge). I think you could even do it a couple of weeks ahead.

One piece of advice I have for you is to make more than one. That way, you have a spare, in case you break the first one (or somebody samples it!). Also, I find that I learn little tricks specific to the design when I do the first one, that allows me to do better on the second.

I never seem to have trouble finding willing volunteers to take my "rejects".
