That looks awesome! Is that a buttercream transfer?
no, I've found FBCT gives me too many problems - I just trace an outline with a toothpick, and fill in the rest with BC directly onto the cake.
You are a true artist! Looks like Dr. Seuss himself drew this!!
thanks, y'all! :)
That looks like a printed image!!!! I wish I was that good with pictures. Great job!!!
Very cool. Who doesn't love the Cat in the Hat? Well done.
Awesome! Explain more about the "BC directly onto the cake". Your finish is so smooth. Please share.
Thanks CathyCakes...I fill decorator bags with smaller round tips (like 2 or 3) and draw in the details. Then I go back with larger tips (like 4, 5, 7, 10) and "color in the lines" so to speak. Then I take my tapered angled spatula, smooth it out as best I can. Then with my finger dipped in cornstarch I pat the surface smooth. Takes me a while, but I'm satisfied with the results. If it's a larger area I'll use a square piece of Viva paper towel to smooth out the surface. HTH!
