The method says to use wax paper but I don't have any. So I used saran wrap. What I want to know is if it will peel off it when I put on the cake? Or will I have an problem?
Im gonna give you a bump because I have only used the wax paper, I don't know if you should of used saran wrap or not sorry
Hope someone answers your ?
Do you have any parchment paper? You can use it as well. I haven't tried plastic wrap, but I can't see why it wouldn't work. To test it put some icing on it, freeze it and then see if it will peel off.
I haven't used saran wrap, but I remember other people saying they had used it and it was fine. The only issue is getting the saran to not have ANY wrinkles/crumples in it, so it has to be taut when applied. IF you find you have wrinkles in the end, wait for it to come to room temperature and wait for it to crust, and then either LIGHTLY do the viva towel method or better yet, use the foam roller method to smooth it out. I use the roller to work out worming and air bubbles.
It should peel off fine unless you have a major fold in the saran wrap where it will catch and pull up a section of frosting...
i tried parchment paper last night and couldn't get the transfer to peel off. i had to send dh out to get me some waxed paper because i need a yankees fbct for tomorrow.
let us know how the saran wrap works, though. i'd be interested to know.
I've used saran wrap and it has come off without a problem. Not as easy as wax paper, but no major problems with it!
Thanks everyone! This is the first time I do this and I didn't realise it needed wax/parchment paper. I was actually able to tape the saran wrap really tight so as far as I know there aren't any wrinkles.
I always use wax paper but would use parchment if I needed too. I have heard that if using parchment paper that you should grease (crisco) it firat and then do the transfer. I have not try this method yet, though! GOOD LUCK!!
I just put it on the cake and it did great! A couple of minor creases around the edges but nothing major It's for my parents comany function so I'm not to worried about it.
