I get a lot of questions on the royal icing transfers I put on my cakes. I took a lot of pics a while back when doing some, and I finally got around to putting them together. I hope I have explained everything, but I probably didn't icon_biggrin.gif so feel free to ask me anything! I just love this site and have learned so so so much from it. If I can give anything back by I'm only greatful. I hope this helps someone icon_biggrin.gif

I've done these before too & love them. I've posted another topic asking about how long they can sit on a crusting buttercream. No one has even looked at the topic so I will ask here, hoping for an answer. The cake is for Sat, but being picked up Thurs. I want to make sure it will not dissolve from the grease of the buttercream.

When I've used RITs before they've been consumed the next day. I would appreciate any input

Hmm, the pictorial was removed from my photos icon_sad.gif Apperently I am not allowed to upload it... I find this strange as I have seen (and saved) lots of pictorials that are not in the tutorial section but rather just some member that have done a photo collage. I'm sorry I did not get a chance to read all the comments that came in while I was sleeping. I don't know if I have the energy to do anything about this.

I'm sorry I can't help you there. I have never put mine on BC, just fondant, so I wouldn't know how long they will look ok. Maybe someone else knows?

kickasscakes Posted 24 Aug 2009 , 5:38am

sad to see it was gone. Clicked on the link, and there was nada.
Sorry about the lost time and effort!
It was sweet of you to share, anyhow!

Homemade-Goodies Posted 24 Aug 2009 , 5:44am

Oh man, I wonder why it was removed....? That's a shame.

cakehelp Posted 24 Aug 2009 , 5:48am

To anyone who wonders why the pictoral was removed. This is the explanation I was sent as a private message:

The Sketches, Patterns and Template gallery is not for tutorials. There is a section of Cake Central for tutorials. You will have to contact Jackie about adding yours to it. Jackie is also adding a feature soon that will allow you to post tutorials and directions.
Thanks,

I wonder why CC wouldn't just put it in the proper category? I agree that we've seen stuff posted in the regular forums that was very instructional and informative. I might not have found them any other way! icon_confused.gif Am looking forward to seeing your RIT tutorial. Thanks for the time you put into it. Your avatar is lovely, btw. icon_razz.gif

cylstrial Posted 24 Aug 2009 , 7:19pm

It would go in the article section! There are lots of HOW TO tutorials in there. Hope you get it posted!

tiggy2 Posted 24 Aug 2009 , 7:23pm

Darn, I really wanted to see it icon_sad.gif

jimandmollie Posted 24 Aug 2009 , 7:24pm

I wish I could have seen it, it would have really been helpful to me. I will watch this thread, if anyone sees it posted elsewhere, please post a link if you would be so kind. Thanks!

dorie67 Posted 24 Aug 2009 , 7:36pm

I didn't get the chance to see the tutorial but did take the opportunity to look at your cakes and the RITs are great. I make them sometimes and really enjoy doing them. princess.gif

cakehelp Posted 24 Aug 2009 , 7:51pm

Thanks everyone!
I didn't think of this before but I just got the brilliant idea of posting the pics in this thread. It didn't work though since they are a little bigger than 800x800 and that is not allowed either icon_lol.gif I feel like it was just not ment to be...

cylstrial, in the article section I don't think you can just upload anything. It has to be submitted and approved by someone, and I would probably have to change the pics to one of each. I put them together to make less pics for uploading in the gallery. I don't think I have the energy to do that.

If I have time later I might try to make the pics smaller and upload them in this thread so that anyone who wants them can download them. I assume that is allowed... icon_rolleyes.gif But now I actually have to go make some, 2 hello kitty and one spiderman for this weekend's cakes... no rest... no sleep icon_biggrin.gif don't you just love caking!

ngfcake Posted 24 Aug 2009 , 8:01pm

Cakehelp, your cakes are beautiful!!

This website is for resizing pictures, it's really easy! (and free) http://www.shrinkpictures.com/

I really look forward to see your tutorial.

cakehelp Posted 24 Aug 2009 , 9:53pm

ngfcake, thanks for the tip (and compliment), but I use Photoshop for my pic editing. I was just afraid that shrinking the pics would make the text in them hard to read, so I did a little cut and paste to make them smaller. There are now fewer images/instructions in each pic. I will try to upload them now. I hope they will show in the correct order...

I don't know why the pics are so small. They are not like that on my computer... Well, I hope you can see something anyway...

MerlotCook Posted 24 Aug 2009 , 10:04pm

Awesome and sooo helpful! I copied it just in case it disappears again!

jimandmollie Posted 24 Aug 2009 , 10:06pm

OMG! icon_surprised.gif Duh! *hits self in head* Why didn't I think of that?!?!?

LOL I so could have used this tutorial last week! lol icon_lol.gif

That is an awesome tutorial and I am so glad you posted it. I am heading to the kitchen now to make some pretty transfers to have on hand for the next cake. Thank you Thank you Thank you! I don't know why I hadn't heard of this or thought of this before. I appreciate the time you took and you made me a happy lady today!

ngfcake Posted 24 Aug 2009 , 10:08pm

Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I could read it perfectly.

I know! Exactly what I was thinking... sometimes that big round thing on top of the body is just not working right icon_biggrin.gif

josumiko Posted 24 Aug 2009 , 10:31pm

I am so glad that I saw this! I was going to do a FBCT, and lay it flat on my Noah's Ark cake this weekend, since I have another cake to do also, but I did want to do something a little more special! This is it! Now I can decorate more of the cake like water, and have Noah's ark standing up on the cake!!! Thanks for the awesome tutorial!

sarahjane83 Posted 24 Aug 2009 , 10:41pm

Thank you so much for this! I have to do a Hello Kitty cake this weekend and now I know exactly how to do it. Thanks again!!

aundrea Posted 24 Aug 2009 , 11:03pm

sweetsound Posted 24 Aug 2009 , 11:16pm
