Hi everyone!

I'm needing to make a Superman logo on a cake and I'm not really sure of the best way to fill it in. I think I'm going to use the Pinprick method (never tried it but hope it works) to actually get the logo on the cake but then how do I fill in the colors? Do you use a small round tip and then smooth it? And do you fill in the inside colors and then go over it with a black outline? I need some advice! icon_smile.gif Thanks!

A frozen buttercream transfer would be just the trick. If you've never tried one, here's a link to the tutorial here on CC:

NOTE: Make sure you make your pattern in reverse because you are going to flip it over onto the cake. If it is something you are printing from your computer, print it "reverse" or "mirror image"

Hello.

If you are working with buttercream, you may want to consider trying out the Frozen Buttercream Transfer method. I think this might be a good way and it would fill in the spaces with color. I have not yet tried this methd but I am looking for a reason to.

Here is a link to an article on here about how to do this:

Good luck and I'd be curious to know how it works out for you.

[Edit... Oops looks like someone else had the same idea and posted at the same time. Great minds must think alike!]

I've done several of these. On my second or third time of doing the FFA emblem (you can see it in my photos) I forgot to reverse the picture. The first one took me about two hours to do because it is very detailed. I was able to do it in an hour and a half the second time when I redid it.
