Hi everyone,
I haven't been on here in a looong time and am having problems figuring out how to make my searches more specific.

I am planning to do fbc transfer for ds's 1st bday cake and I wanted to make it cover the top of a 13x9 cake. How do I do this? Are there any tips for getting the transfer onto the cake?

I've done a few fbcts, so I know how to do the technique. I am just unsure about getting one that big onto the cake, but I've seen them on here so I know it can be done.

welcome back!

I've done a full FBCT for a round cake, but I don't see why it wouldn't work for a sheet cake. Draw out the edges to the size of your cake top, fill in the design as usual, the cover over to the edges with white or whatever color you are using.

Make sure it is thick enough before putting it on the cake. I d didn't use any other icing on top, just the FBCT. And I think I iced the sides after I put on the top.

Good luck!

As long as it's thick enough, I don't think it will be significantly different than doing a smaller one.

Let me know how it turns out!
