I'm preparing to make a birthday cake for my little girl and wanted to make a Winnie the Pooh cake using chocolate transfers. I think I have the technique down, but had a couple questions. First of all, how far in advance can I make the transfers? Do they need to be the day of or can I make them in advance and freeze them (or does that cause the colors to run?) What is the best way to store them if I can make them in advance? Finally, what is the best brand of chocolate to use? Any other advice would be very helpful. Thank you in advance.
Once the candy has hardened you can store the transfers wrapped or bagged in a cool, dry place. DON"T store them in the freezer, it can affect the look of the candy.
Since they're just candy there isn't anything to go bad so they can be made weeks in advance.
If you aren't used to working with real chocolate I'd suggest buying candy melts from Wilton or some other company. They don't need tempered and for small amounts are easiest to work with.
