That tutorial is a great thing! A little tip, make sure the icing you use to flood in your coloring is fairly thin so that way you dont have all the lines in your transfer! Good luck!

I may be WAY out of my skill level, but my son really wants a Mario themed birthday. He's allergic to dairy so I'm really nervous about having the cake made outside of the home.

I'm thinking of trying the frozen buttercream tranfer but will this work with icing that doesn't contain dairy?

In the past, I have used:
Duncan Hines or Betty Crocker dairy free options frosting

or this recipe:
1/2 cup nonhydrogenated shortening
1/2 cup nonhydrogenated margarine, we use Earth Balance
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar, sifted if clumpy
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup plain soy milk or soy creamer

I live in Southwest MO and we do not have any good suppliers of cake decorating supplies. We have a Michael's and Hobby Lobby but, they are very limited. Most of what they carry is Wilton. I was thinking maybe Tulsa, OK might have some place to purchase supplies. Does anyone know if they do. Thank you
