I need to add a University Of Georgia Logo to a cake and was wondering what would be the best way to do this. I would like to place the Logo ontop of grass piped with the grass tip. What would work best?

TIA...

what about a chocolate transfer of UGA the bulldog. He could be standing up if uou put a lollipop stick on back of him. My boys Dad graduated from UGA school of pharmacy.

I have a UGA cake in my photos. I just made the symbol from fondant.

I think a transfer(chocolate or buttercream)would be best.The uga on my cake and the G symbols are all chocolate.

Hi Rachie, and welcome to CC!

Run sugar is a technique where you use stiff RI to outline an image, then thin the RI and flood inside the outline. Wilton makes a product called Colorflow, that's basically RI mix. If you search colorflow here (or probably even google it) you will get the full instructions.
It's a technique that I use often; the downside it the drying time (2-3 days depending on the humidity- and you know how THAT varies icon_confused.gif ), and coloring lots of tiny bowls of icing! For the dawg logo, you would only need three colors, of course!

This pretty much explains it. You don't have to use the Wilton product, you can use RI-however if you are beginning, it's helpful to have exact measurements until you get a "feel" for the technique. It's really versatile- several of the cakes in my gallery have run sugar pieces-Dora & Super Why are two that I can think of right this minute.
You should try it y'all! thumbs_up.gif

Don't be put off by the instructions-they seem really long, but step-by-step they aren't really complicated.

I put my image(printed out or drawn on copy paper) inside a plastic page protector. That way I don't have to fool with taping wax paper over it, then I tape the whole page onto a hard-back cookbook or the back of a sheet pan-anything that will keep it flat.

And hello amberkw-yep Goooo Dawgs-sic 'em! icon_lol.gif

kjt - love the spikes you did on the collar. I forgot that trick of the page protector - thanks for the memory boost.
