Hi All!

I am going to do some Icing Transfers on my next cake. I wanted to know what type of transfer is the best. I know there are different styles of icing transfers out there, but I am deciding between Royal Icing or Color Flow.

Which of these two is better? Is one stronger than the other?
Also, when either of these transfers are placed against a Buttercream Iced cake, do they start breaking down because of the shortening used in the icing?

Thank you in advance....

Hi, I am new at this but I did do a color flow elephant and I put it on a chocolate buttercream cake. It held up great from start to finish. I still held on to the elephant for several days after we ate the cake. I was sad to throw it away. You can take a look at it in my pics if you would like. The only thing I did wrong was.......the elephant was holding a flower and I made the stem too thin and it broke when I took it off the wax paper. Also, I do know that color flow is shiny and royal icing is a dull finish. Hope this helps you. icon_smile.gif
