First PAID Cake

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well, I've finally got an order for a cake. My sister & I keep talking about making business cards, but really I don't have time to decorate full time. Mostly just like to do it when I want to. A girl that works for me has a 5 year old step-daughter and she wants me to make a Care Bear cake. I am going to try the buttercream transfer. I have instructions from Calidawn, but this will be the first time I have ever tried it. Hopefully it won't be too hard. Does anyone think I should try something else instead?

I have never tried a BC transfer so I am not sure, but I have seen the cutest cake pan/mold for the Care Bare. I have the pan, and from what I see following the directions on it are pretty much easy to follow. I am sure someone here who has more experience can help you out...this is just MO...lol Good luck and congrats on your first paid order!! Can't wait to see a pic icon_smile.gif

Oh YES, try a BCT, they are easy as long as you follow the directions and take your time. Also, biggest tip--don't try to make it too thin, that creates nightmares when you try to get the waxed paper off later.
This is my 2 cents b/c I don't care for the character pans with all the stars on it, alot of people do though. Good luck!

Go ahead and try the buttercream transfer. I did my first one yesterday for my brother's b-day cake (from a drawing that my Dad did), and it turned out great!! I'll admit that I was worried that it would turn out horribly, but it ended being so easy!!

I guess the ease of actually making the BCT is what sparked even more worries that it would look awful in the end. I kept thinking that something so simple couldn't possibly have a good outcome icon_eek.gif but it turned out great!!

I say GO FOR IT!!! thumbs_up.gif
