I'm so proud of myself and so excited to have tried... and done well on, IMO!... two new techniques on my last cake. The first one I tried was a FBCT. Never done one before and, granted, this one is fairly simplistic but, I was tickled with the way it turned out. I used the tutorial from on here. Second trick I tried was to use a small foam roller to smooth out my buttercream frosting. It worked great! Thanks, CC, for all the help! icon_smile.gif

The picture of the vest is the logo for my FIL's motorcycle club and is what I had to copy onto the cake. It says "Creed Brotherhood".

The detail is wonderful! Great job!

It was the FBCT that pulled me into CC, so I understand your excitement!! And your first one looks MUCH better than mine did!

What is FBCT? I know what it stands for because I looked it up (thank God for the list) but how do you do it? Thanks.

Thanks, y'all! I appreciate the positive comments. icon_smile.gif

IcedTea (Lisa)-- this is the tutorial that I used to help me figure out how to make a FBCT. Hope it helps!

This looks just like the jacket! My only critique is in your post where you said it was a simple design. It looks quite detailed to me!

Y'all are very kind. JammJenks-- to me, it seems very simple considering there are only two colors involved. I'm looking forward to trying something more complicated involving more colors. Thanks again, everyone! icon_smile.gif
