Portrait Buttercream Transfer

Hi, this was my first time posting a picture and I didn't realize you could add a comment. This was done for my step grandmothers 85th birthday. It's a <a href=http://cakecentral.com/article12-How-To-Create-a-Frozen-Buttercream-Transfer.html>frozen buttercream transfer</a>. I'm new at cake decorating but really enjoy it. I'm a charcoal portrait artist, so doing a portrait cake was something I was really interested in doing. Nina was a young woman in this portrait, but I don't know how old.

I am so impressed! I've been wanting to do a transfer from a photo, but unsure how to go about deciding what details to pick up. Yours is out of this world. Details please.....

Hi cali4dawn. I just flipped and printed out a picture of Nina on regular paper and used a no. 1 tip to outline the details in black. For a face, I think it's important not to close all the lines, like I didn't make a line all the way across the bottom of the eyes. Or the mouth. ANd the nose is suggested by a few lines. And the curls in the hair are suggested by a few curls. It's really not that difficult. Someday, when I'm feeling brave, I think I'll use more color and add simple shading.
