Hi, I am new to cake decorating and would like to do a FBCT of a transformer character for my son's birthday cake but am having a hard time finding an image big enough to print. Can anyone help me? Also what is a filling dam and how do you do it

I've never done a FBCT I'd love to try it too. Hope we get some good ideas.

I'd try google images. I usually find anything I'm looking for there.

In answer to your other question, a filling dam is a ring of stiffened buttercream piped around where you will put the filling. It's designed to keep the filling from bulging out. You can pipe with a coupler with no tip or use a #12 tip. Never add the filling to the height of the dam, it must be lower or you risk sliding tiers.

Hope that helps some! icon_biggrin.gif

When you are on google images, you can select different sizes of images for it to look up. Large or Extra Large are the best. Medium sizes are sometimes too small.
Good Luck

I use a site clipart.com, just type in the seach area what you are looking for. Hope this helps.

I have also used coloring pages (on the net or purchased) for FBCT ideas. Or just google the image I need. HTH. icon_smile.gif
