This is a reverse chocolate transfer. She did trace it with melted chocolate. Chill well or even freeze so the next layer won't melt the first. Make sure your second layer is only body temp warm. Then she spread it right away to cover. SInce the underlayer is cold, your second layer can get into the nooks & crannies underneath as long as your underlayer is very cold and your top is only warm. HTH

That's exactly what I did on my cross cakes that are in my photos. I basically did the same technique as a FBCT, except with candy melts. I thought it was easy to do, and if I can do it, a supervised monkey can do it. Give it a try!!

Candy melts, no I can NOT work with melting candy!!! I guess the Monkey has me on this one....lol

I tried to do cake balls and they came out 5 times all clumpy and lumpy...lol, choc. seizing and crystalizing, and burning...on the stove in the microwave...etc....

I see all these transfers of candy melts done beautifully and I can do them!!!! lol

I was just wondering how that woman did it, thought it was so neat....

icon_eek.gif Arghhhhhhhh, what about a few frames in where someone is kissing a dog - or was it a naked baby deer - icon_confused.gif not sure

I like the chocolate idea - thumbs_up.gif
But Imagine finding a cat hair on your slice - *shudder*

Yes, you can also use royal icing. It's really simple and you don't have to work in reverse like you do with the butter cream or chocolate transfers. Here's a link to a thread with a good photo tutorial on the second page.

Ew, ew, ew!!!! I just looked through the rest now. I like cats and all, but keep them off the counters! Well, I guess the hairless cat doesn't count. lol

EWWW! Was all I was thinking. Who the heck would want to eat that cake with the cats sniffing all around it and walking on the counter. You know that cat didnt stop with a sniff. It probably munched all over that thing.

Bluehue - Ive never seen a naked baby deer before, but I imagine if I had that would be one!

[b]LOLLLLLLLL, I didn't know what it was - and thats the first thing that came to mind - then when joyfullysweet said *hairless cat* - i icon_redface.gificon_redface.gif
Can't believe someone would even consider putting cat snaps like that up when they are showing a tutorial -

Arghhhh - imagine if she actually sells cakes icon_eek.giftapedshut.gif....shudder.

2txmedics -
I had trouble using candy melts - horrid little things icon_razz.gif then i sent away for the CK Wafers and some Paramount Crystals......... and voula - what a dream to work with.
No clumping lumpy gooeeey mess - it was like using liquid silk thumbs_up.gif
Melted the wafers in the microwave for 20 seconds - then added a few PC flakes - stirred - back into microwave............... perfect.
Just thought i would mention it - incase you'd like to give it a try.

That made me throw up in my mouth a little! icon_redface.gif I absolutely LOVE animals...even the ugly ones...but NOT IN MY KITCHEN!

Hopefully this person does not sell to the public!

I wouldnt want to be one of her freebie customers either. You couldnt pay me to eat that cake!

We'll there is only a 50% chance of cat hair in the cake since one is naked...lol!

I keep laughing just thinking about the naked baby deer!
