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.

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!
