Wow, great job!! The kids are adorable. When you do color flow like that, do you work it as you would a buttercream transfer?

Thanks! kind of only you do it the same way as you would a coloring book as opposed to doing it in reverse. I just outline one area and then fill it in, then move on to the next area.

Did you draw the shape of the children freehand? They're wonderful.

Thank you, I took my stampin up catalog, scanned the stamps I wanted, enlarged them, printed them out, covered that with wax paper, and then did my color flow. Really easy.

Isn't color flow kind of like royal icing?? Did it bled before you put it on the cake or after?? Royal icing breaks down from the shortening in the buttercream doesn't it. I have only done color flow in class for final cake in course 2. I gave that cake away so I don't know how my cake held up. Your cake is very cute though

color flow and royal are a bit different. color flow will "pillow" where royal doesn't and color flow will dry shiny, where royal doesn't quite as much. It bled before I put it on the cake.

What a cute cake! Great idea using your stampin up catalog . . . which catalog had these images in them? i'd love to try a cake like this that resembled my kids / nieces / nephews.
