Anyone got any great ideas on how to transfer the Tiffany & Co. Logo from paper to the lid of a Tiffany box cake?. I do not have an edible image printer which would of course be the easiest.

Thanks!

Print the logo on regular paper in mirror image. Using a non toxic pencil trace over the logo.

Allow the fondant to dry so that you won't mark it. Then put the paper on the fondant with the writing side down, then trace over the writing, this will leave a very faint outline of the logo on the fondant. Use a paintbrush with edible black color or an edible black pen to go over it.

This is how I did it for this cake. (Hope that makes sense)

Nati, thank you! You're cake is by far my favorite Tiffany cake ever! So beautiful! Did you do the lid by forming it on the cake pan and letting it dry?

Thanks Liz
I iced the cake first, smoothed it and made the edges sharp as possible. Please keep in mind that this is a mudcake which was covered with ganache.

Once the cover had dried a little, i put on another piece of fondant, which I smoothed down but only stuck down where the lid would go. The fondant was trimmed, then smoothed to make the edges sharp, then trimmed again, as the lid sides will become deformed when you smooth it. Hope that makes sense icon_smile.gif

Not really...but I'm more a visual learner. All I know is your's is the best one I've ever seen. If I could get mine too look half as good as your cake I'd be thrilled!
