I'm a newbie and I'm taking a class. Tomorrow I'm planning on doing a cake with 'The Wiggles' on it.
I'm sure the answer to this is somewhere in here, but I'm new and I can't find it. But what's the best way to get the picture I want like drawn out on the cake?? Is there a easy way to do it, or do I free hand it all?
Please help! My class is tomorrow evening so I don't have much time!!
Obviously the easiest way is with an edible image, HOWEVER, those are copyrighted so unless it is a freebie for family or friends I wouldn't go that route. There is frozen buttercream transfer that is fun to make and turns out well. I have also read about using royal icing and outlining the image then turning it upside down after it has hardened and pressing down to make an impression. You then outline the image and flood each section. If you have some acrylic like sheets (I use projector sheets) or some sort of plastic sheet that is flexible you can try the frozen buttercream transfer. There are instructions here or elsewhere on the internet. I find the shinier the sheet is the shinier the image is once it is removed. Good luck and let us know what you try and how it worked for you.
if you're taking a class tomorrow why not ask the instructor. perhaps transferring a pattern will be part of the class.
Hi and Congrats on your 1st post, persephone76.
10 Ways to transfer images to cakes:
If the character is a copyrighted character, even making it via a FBCT is a copyright violation, if this is anything except a freebie for friend/family.
Sorry, this was a thread from like a year and half ago.
The cake was for myself, for a cake class (as posted) that I was taking.
Wow! That was an old thread! You just never know when these things are going to come back to life! Hehe.
oops! I didn't even notice!
i'll just throw in my 2 cents...
I do a Melted Chocolate transfer. Same method as FBCT but you use chocolate wafers.
