I have a cake coming up and they've requested martini glasses, purses, shoes, lipstick, etc. I'd like to do these in runsugar/colorflow b/c it's an all buttercream cake...anyone know where I can find templates of these things?

thanks!

Have you thought of doing them w/a candy mold?? Not sure aobut the martini glass but I know they have the other stuff on one mold.

I would go online to any clip art places and get a printout of whatever you want (even using a regular picture printed off the internet will do.) Place underneath a piece of wax paper and flow over it following the picture. You can wait for it to dry and paint it after. Hope that helps some! icon_biggrin.gif

I understand how run sugar is done directly on a surface, like on cookies but how do you transfer the finished work from the wax paper onto the cake? Is it like a buttercream transfer?, frozen and flipped?

You gently slide it off the table, pulling the wax paper away from underneath in a downward fashion. If you want to make the piece stronger, you can flip it over and repipe on the back for extra strength.

Kool! Thanks! I'll have to give that a try. I never dreamed it could be handled like that - awesome!

Oh sure, it's easy!! If you look in my pix I did the gold monogrammed cake like that. I always make tons of extras in case of breakage... icon_rolleyes.gif Then after it dried I gilded it with lustre dust and vodka. Beautiful!! icon_biggrin.gif The nice thing is you can use any font you like to do the monogram in! icon_lol.gif
