The company I work for is starting a new division and I was asked to make the cake. The cake will be our logo which is circles going for larger to small out of the center. Very easy really. I was also thinking of making elderly people and putting on the front of the cake. I think I wants to try to do a transfer. Would I do that out of thinned colored royal icing? My thought is get a photocopy of the pict I want and trace and then fill with RI. WIll this work. I want them flat and not 3D.
Here's a couple of threads that I think will help you out with all of your questions:
Hope those links help you out.
yep you can do that, i did that for my last cake where i traced and flooded over an image i printed out (fishing cake in my gallery if you want to look) and it dries flat.
Not sure how thin your circles will be but be careful with them cose they will be fragile. Make sure to do an outline first with thicker RI then flood then flood with the thinner royal icing.
Another option is a buttercream transfer, i havn't personally tried this but i like the smoothness of the flooded RI better.
