Hello, im looking for some advice or tips. I am making an oval shaped cake with a logo on it that consists of intricate lines and scrolls. What would be the best method for laying this out on fondant? I just practiced the design by doing an FBCT just to see how it would look. It woulld be great if I could just get the black lines to transfer off the paper without filling in with icing but they wont! Ive included an image of the logo (please excuse that its backwards, i flipped it for the transfer). My next thought is color flow.....what if I made a color flow plaque? ive only done color flow once before sooo...
- am i able to get a fine line with color flow....
- do i have to use parchment bags or can i use tip 1?....
- would i have to flood the whole thing with white once i do the black?

what would you do?? thanks!!! thumbs_up.gif

I am just a hobby baker but I would use an edible image... seems like the best way to get it correct.. HTH

I've had success getting fine lines with color flow (I haven't seen your pic)

ok trying this again, wonder why i cant upload a photo. anyway, its the reverse of the image shown here, so its black script/scrolls on white background.

edible image WOULD make my life super easy...maybe if i put that on fondant plaque and then put a border around??

This technique may work well for what you want to do. Elaine MacGregor demonstrates how to impress a pattern onto fondant:
