I have tried and failed 3 times to do a FBCT. My problem starts when I try to transfer the design to the cake. Do you just put the transfer on the cake and let it "fall" from the wax paper? Mine just comes apart and will not transfer. What am I doing wrong icon_cry.gif

I've not had that problem with mine?? Now, I won't say that the FBCT falls off the waxed paper (or I use acetate film too), but I can lay the FBCT on the cake and SLOWLY peel off the waxed paper. Sometimes I have to let the FBCT sit for a few seconds on the cake with the waxed paper on it (maybe a gentle rub with my hand), and that usually helps the FBCT release faster - not long enough for the FBCT to melt, though, or when you try to peel off the waxed paper you will have a soupy mess! I can't imagine why the transfer is falling apart - maybe it's a bit thin?? Otherwise, I hope others can suggest something to you.
