I am going to be doing my first FBCT on Friday for a pull apart cupcake cake I need for a birthday party on Saturday. The party is going to be outside and it is going to be in the high 80's, possibly 90's that day! I have a few questions, any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
#1- After completing the transfer, should I freeze and then apply it on Friday or wait until Saturday morning?
#2- What is the best way to thaw the transfer? Should I refrigerate the cake after I attach the transfer so that it can thaw slowly, to avoid color bleeding? Or leave the cake out in room temperature?
#3- I found a BC recipe that is said to be good for high humidity situations. Does anyone have a go to BC recipe they use for transfers, on cakes in the summer in outdoor high temp. situations?
Sorry if these questions seem dumb haha Like I said it is my first FBCT and I am a little nervous! Mainly about it melting due to the heat, or the colors all bleeding together :/
Thank you in advance to anyone who can help!
There are no dumb questions here! It's been a while since I've done one but I use IndyDebi's icing for the color and the Wilton black icing in the tube works GREAT for the outlining. Indydebi's holds up really well in the heat/humidity. Not sure about Wilton, but it works so well for outlining. I left the cake out at room temperature, but I live in a dry area. Good luck and I hope someone else can answer the other questions. I would recommend you PM Texas Sugar - she is really good at them, has done a lot and gave me some good advice!
Thank you so much for your advice Terri! I will definitely have to try that out!
