I am very new at this, I have made several cakes but never used a transfer. I have found several things on tranfers. But I'm still unsure. After tracing the picture on my parchment paper, am I supposed to put it in the freezer, if so for how long? How is it supposed to come off the paper onto the cake. Can someone please give me step by step instructions. icon_confused.gif

What kind of transfer are you talking about, buttercream or a chocolate transfer?

If you are talking about a glazed transfer or a chocolate transfer, I can;t find tutorials onj this site...

go here (This is an old site of mine)

Scroll through. You will find tutorials for all three types.

Good luck!

I truely have no idea what kind to use. The party theme is transformers so I thought a transfer might be the best way to go. All suggestions are very welcome.

I do frozen buttercream transfers (FBCT) all the time. There is a step by step tutorial on here. Let me look for it and I'll post it when I find it...I'm terrible at searching. If I can't find it I'll give you instructions as best I can. Jodie

I found it..quicker than I thought I would, too. This is where I learned to do them. I have left mine in the freezer for a couple days, but once it's frozen through I wrapped it to keep from getting freezer burn. The most important thing is to get it thick enough so it doesn't break when peeling off the paper. I use wax paper. HTH. Jodie
