Good morning, cake buddies!

I started teaching Wilton in January. Last week, we were on the piping gel transfer technique. For three of my students, the transfer went as expected. However, for my fourth student, the piping gel would not transfer! I have no idea how this could happen. She had a class buttercream frosted cake which felt fine to the touch. The piping gel was my own, Wilton brand, just opened a few weeks before. We had the transfer on the wax paper, and I was using the paintbrush...started out gently, of course, but then I pressed harder when the transfer was not occurring. Any harder and I would have been drawing on the cake.

Any idea what happened? I am in California...no heat/humidity factors. It was not really dry...in fact, weather was gorgeous!

It was most embarrassing icon_biggrin.gif
