Well, to tell you the truth, I don't even bother using colorflow anymore.
Its cheaper to do Royal icing and if you thin it, you can do the same fillings as you do with Color Flow.
I have done a lot of my characters with Royal icing. It dries faster too.
I don't even do the buttercream transfer. I do everything in Royal Icing and get same details....
You can see in my photos the stand up characters and also Scooby Doo Cake where I used Royal Icing...
