This works very well! I have .. uhh.. no cake dec experience.. so I really really am TERRIBLE at this..
the first time, I used the buttercream recipe.. the second? I didnt have internet acess because I moved (I got it about 7 hrs later the day I did the cake!) so i... went from memory of one my sister told me.. it worked okay..
The first cake was spiderman.. for my daughters 3rd birthday party (girly girl, but tomboy at the same time! lol!)
Here is spidey.. note the cake is dreadful?.. yea.. I was rush rush rushed.. and I dont normally like the taste of buttercream (I hate it..) so I didnt use it for the cake.. just the transfer.. and its sloppy and fun (.. my 3 year old helped a little.. hehehe) ... but spidey looks nice!
and here is my second.. the buttercream tasted better this time (to me..) as the recipe i used .. didnt use butter.. just crisco.. was nice..
.. my digi cam is OF COURSE out of bats.. so this pic was taken via my cellphones cam.. which explains the HORRID quality!.. argh..
it's a custom my little pony character my fiancee did for our oldest.. she turned 6 this year.. green pony (green is her fav color) and stick straight blonde hair (she really loves the exagerated yellow hair for blondes that is done in Japanese anime.. thus the intense yellow color!) and a rainbow.. per.. the rainbowy goodness of the actual my little ponies..
not.. too terrible.. but.. not as awsome as the stuff I've seen here.. *sigh*
