I need some advice....

I'm making a chalkboard cake for a client this weekend. I have to do some pretty detailed drawings of a cartoon on it. Is there anyway to transfer onto black fondant without putting holes in it? I'm afraid I won't be able to cover them up with the white paint....

Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

Can you trace over the fondant with the back end of a paint brush or a carving tool to create slight indentations that you can paint over rather than make holes?

You could use a pouncing method, but use powdered sugar or corn starch instead of cocoa.  This tutorial shows transferring a design onto a sugar sheet, but you can also do it directly onto the cake.

@Magda _mi I have never seen that method.  I am going to give it a try. Thanks!

And on the plus side, any excess dust that won't blow off will just look like chalk dust.  ;-)

But, weren't you concerned about excess holes???

Pouncing doesn't leave any holes.  The holes are in the paper pattern, not the fondant.  You dust the pattern, so that the dust goes through the holes onto the fondant.

Ah, the holes go in the it.  Thanks for clarifying!
