I've seen great things w/ the buttercream transfers that people have done on cakes and was wondering if it was possible to do something similar using royal icing. Anyone ever try a royal icing transfer to fondant?

I don't see how it could work, but wouldn't that be the same as a RI plaque, or color flow? icon_confused.gif

You use RI to do the outline for color flow and then fill in the spaces with color flow or diluted RI. So, I guess the answer is yes.

HTH!

I guess I"m not familiar w/ color flow then. Can someone elaborate?

Would you do the same as you would a buttercream transfer...decorating onto wax paper then transferring?

You can also use candy melts or colored white chocolate to do a transfer. The good thing about this is that it sets almost instantly in the fridge so it's much faster. And it tastes good.

It is best done on *plastic wrap* especially if the piece is rather large.
As was mentioned make sure you 'pillow' the flow into the outline. It settles down as it dries & if you haven't pillowed it enough it actially will dry w/a depressionicon_sad.gif
Yes, it can be done right on a cake but there is no room for error hereicon_smile.gif
Chocolate (CT) is a great alternative.
