Hi! If you google frozen buttercream transfer on the internet you'll get loads and loads of videos and tutorials. Here's a link to one of them:

. I'm new to cake decorating and haven't done one myself...but it looks pretty straightforward. Hope this helps and good luck!

AYeah I'm new to it too. I've only done a few but really simple ones. My mom 60th is coming up and she loves betty boop.

Thank you.

Hi again! Maybe you've already done this...you could search for Betty Boop images on the internet, pick one you like , print it out and do a trial run....that way you'll get to practice a little and make sure that there won't be any 'unwanted' surprises on the big day :) Really sweet of you to make a cake for your mom. I'm sure it'll turn out just fine and she'll love it! Would love to see a pic of the final cake when you're done :)

The biggest thing to remember is to do the details and outlining first. I make mine on parchment paper so that I can look at it while doing it and make sure I don't have any spots that need to be filled.

AShe loved it. Every one thought I bought it because I'm not much of a baker

AJust make sure when u use the parchment or wax paper u use the side with the waxy side and not the other. Learned the hard way it doesn't come off if it isnt the waxy side :(
