For a halloween cake i'm doing this weekend, I have decided to write "boo humbug" on it many times with a small font....instead of one time really big
I've never done a frozen transfer, but I've read about it and it seems very easy, so I was going to pipe the letters on parchment paper, freeze, then just peel them off and stick them to the cake OR should I make royal icing (which ive never done before, but read about and it seems easy too) and do it that way.
I don't know if one is easier over the other or anything, just some advice from you pro's out there would be great =) thanks!
I would go with the transfer over royal icing. I have done buttercream transfers a few times and they are pretty easy. Doing one this weekend actually for a haunted house lol.
Or you could just free hand it.
I would do buttercream transfer - it is extremely simple and forgiving. RI tends to be brittle (unless I just made mine wrong) and I would be afraid of pieces falling apart. With the BCT you would need to pipe in mirror image writing - that way when you turn it over onto cake and remove waxed paper, it will be readable. I used BCT for a Jack Skellington cake my first time with it and everyone thought I had drawn it freehand. Good Luck
