i freeze mine in between colors and then when the coloring has been completed i lay a piece of wax paper over the image and rub with my finger. you can lift up the wax paper the image is on and peek to see if your lines are smoothing out. i've only done one fbct, but it turned out really well. i was quite pleased! it's the pooh cake in my photos. i had to keep putting it back in the freezer to let the icing firm up in between rubbings... it kinda took a while but the end result was worth it!

FBCT is Frozen Buttercream Transfer. They are very simple and alot of fun to do. Here is a link on how to do them.

Your transfer looks great! I've done several, but they're always thick and I have to put a border around them. How do you keep it so thin?

Thanks for all your kind words!

JulieBee, I don't know if it makes a difference but I put the transfer on the crumb coat and then smoothed it into the final coat.

Emf7701, thanks so much for tips on making the transfer smoother.
