Has anyone had the problem where their R.I.T. won't sit flat on the cake? My cakes were pretty darn flat, so it was quite frustrating!

BTW, this is the result of my first R.I.T. attempt, thanks to this thread which encouraged me to give it a go!

zespri.......those RIT's of yours look amazing....they are so neatly done.
Maybe I should give it another go and see if I can get them to look so "clean cut" as yours do..
Totally jealous I am of how yours turned out!! icon_sad.gif

oh my gosh, thank you Charmaine, but I think if you saw them close up you would not have such sweet comments! I didn't feel they were very clean cut, but I'll take the compliment, thanks!

I will try to upload them now. I hope they will show in the correct order...





I am so bummed. The last 9 pictures don't show up! But from what I saw this is deffinately something that I want to try, badly.

I think that the pictures that don't show up on page 2 may be duplicates of the ones above them. I've seen that happen before. Sometimes the pictures are repeated (don't know why) and sometimes you just see the little red x's.

yes thank you cakehelp for this! I tried it a couple weeks ago for the girl scout cake in my pics...it worked great! Honestly much easier than I expected and had no problems at all! Love it when a new technique goes well lol.

I can't find this tutorial in the How To's? I would love to check out your pictorial. I am new to Royal Icing and I am looking to apply a music lines and notes to a fondant cake that is curved so I was a little curious if I need to let it dry on something curved or what? Any tips or tricks? Thanks!

I also would like to have the Royal Icing Transfer tutorial.  I have done buttercream transfers before, but never RI & just learned about it.  Thanks!

AQuestion: I'm making a cake for my two year old and don't want to use fondant. I plan on covering my cake with buttercream icing and want to add a character on a stick such as you did with the hello kitty. Here's my problem, since I'm doing a buttercream icing should I use a frozen buttercream icing transfer so it doesn't damage it. But if I do that I can't put it on a stick right? I'm thinking that the buttercream would just fall apart on the stick if I tried that? And also can I get away with using a RIT on a stick that is barley touching my buttercream? Please any suggestions on what I should do would be of great help! Thanks in advance

AI had a thought while taking a shower, which seems to be the only time I can think, but I could do a RI transfer and use a little fondant as a barrier against my buttercream frosting.

AI'm not sure what I am doing wrong and hopefully someone can help. I've tried this technique a couple times using antonia74's RI. I think I'm having a hard time finding the right consistency for the flooding because while the top or outer layer dries, it remains wet on the surface touching the plastic wrap. If I make it thicker I feel like it doesn't really flood the image. Any suggestions? Also, I feel like my image is very thin compared to the ones I see here.
