hi everyone, i need some help pls!!! k so i made a RIT of a thomas the train, and i have noticed that when i was doing the flooding, the black outline was breaking on me, so i will go over it again, just to make it stronger, now im soo worried that it will break on me, will it be ok if i just cut around the wax paper and place it directly on a buttercream cake?? sorry i know in the tutorial you said to use plastic wrapm but my wilton instructor told us to use wax paper, is this now ruined???

thanks in advance!!

Sounds like you didn't make the outline thick enough. What tip did you use? I used a 3 and very stiff RI and it worked real well.

Has any one tried this process with candy melts?! I have a bunch of candy melts left over, so I was wondering if I could put them to good use!

I use a number 2 tip if I want a thick outline, and there is not too much detail, but for most of my transfers I use a number 1 tip. So, I don't think it broke because it was too thin. I have no idea what happened to you. I accidently break the outline in places sometimes by bumping into them with the tip while flooding, otherwise they tend to stay intact. But it sounds like your flooded colors stayed where they were supposed to? If the outline breaks, the flooded areas can drip through. If everything stayed in place I would just go over the damaged areas and fill in the outline.

I think you can do them on vax paper, but I have not tried. I imagine it will be a bit more difficult to get it off without breaking it. I think people do it with candy melts on wax paper though.

If you are worried about it breaking you can do as you suggested, cut around it and put the whole thing on the cake. Just remember to remove it before cutting thumbs_up.gif

I've done many with candy melts. There are cakes in my pics. My most labor intensive was the nativity cake. Whimsical Bakehouse does these all the time

I haven't done it myself but I've seen Jennifer Dontz do them with candy melts -- she makes it look sooo easy! icon_rolleyes.gif I know Sugarshack also did a carousel cake using transfers done from candy melts for the horses. Very cute! If I can find my pix of Jen's cake (she did a demo cake) I'll post it. icon_biggrin.gif

So I used the tutorial and made a great Tinkerbell transfer. I put it in the butter cream and it bled through within 2 hours. So I immediately took it off and put sugar cubes in the cake and put the RIT back on it. I thought I read that someone put on on buttercream and it did not bleed after 3 1/2 days. Any suggestions???

Well, I finally finished my cake with the Strawberry Shortcake RIT. Thanks cakehelp for your instructions and help - it worked perfectly!! Initially I thought I was going to have a problem taking the RIT off the saran wrap but it was just stuck to the pan. Once I got the saran loosened off the pan the wrap came off without any problems. I also put the RIT on the buttercream about 8 hours before the party and put the cake into the fridge until the party started. There was no bleeding issues but the transfer did cumble as I cut the cake which was not a problem. I'll definitely do this again for another character cake! Thanks again for all of your help!!
