the link above is how to wrap a cake in chocolate with a transfer sheet. Pretty cool technique, if you ask me.

However, I think the OP wanted to know how to use them on fondant. I too would really like to know. I've seen it done, but can't imagine how. Heat would ruin the fondant, and that is my best guess. Hopefully someone will come along and share icon_smile.gif

if you have your cake covered in fondant, wrap the transfer round, could u like blow it with something like a hair drier? dont have a clue! id be worried about heat messing with the bc too.

So sorry, thought the cake was covered in fondant on that video. Can't you use a syrup or vodka to moisten the fondant and then stick the transfer sheet on that?

i dont think so - they work based on heat - its the heat on the melted chocolate that makes the pattern tranfer (which is made from cocoa butter i think?).

I tried doing it before and there is actually a dvd where is shows how to do it. The main problem that I had is that you get black spaces on the fondant since the plastic bulges and avoids getting it transfer. I got frustrated and disappointed. It did not come out like i expected. I will not try it again.

Woah. Ironing it into fondant? That sounds ridiculous, Wouldn't the fondant melt?

Laura, did you use a hair dryer or an iron?

i used a craft iron on a low temperature over a towel so that it wasn't that hot.
