Hi! I need to make a picture of Dora the Mermaid on a cake.

I made a template of Dora.

I know how to transfer a picture with piping gel...

I need toknow how to fill in all the details..

I don't want to make stars...

What's puzzleing me is how to do all the details, hair, eyes, shirt, etc.

Thanks ahead of time..

Is there anyway that you could include a picture of what you will be putting on the cake? (Like whatever you are looking at to make the cake?) I think that will help everyone...and then maybe we can answer your question better.

Thanks for getting back to me...
I tried to 'add an attachment'...but the site wouldn't let me or maybe I just did something wrong.

But I will try!

Thanks....

I have done a fbct of the Little Mermaid and of a jungle scene. They are in my photos. I got pics off the internet and away I went. Good luck! They are fun to do and look great.
