I'm going to be doing a cake where I want some characters to "stand" on the cake. It will be frosted in buttercream and I'm just wondering which will hold up better with the buttercream. Royal icing transfer or chocolate transfer? Thanks for the help!!!

if you look at my pics, the webkins has stand-up royal icing. I think it just depends on which you like to do. the superman one in my pics was done with chocolate, but it's not standing up. hth icon_smile.gif

Thanks renee2007...

Just one more quick question...whichever method I choose, should I attach them to popsicle sticks to stick in the cake? Or what is the best method?

Thanks a ton!!!!

yes, I think I used tooth picks but popsicle sticks would work,too. just use royal icing or chocolate to glue the sticks on the back. hth icon_smile.gif
