I did a FBCT this past weekend and some of the transfer stuck to the wax paper. This has happened before in the past. Any ideas why? Maybe something else I could try or use something else?

Any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

(I'm going to post a picture here so you can see what I'm talking about. I hope it works. The upper right yellow flames.)

I don't know if this helps any or not, but instead of using wax paper, I use plastic wrap. I take my image, lay it on cardboard, then wrap the plastic wrap around the cardboard, pipe and freeze. Nothing has stuck yet, knock on wood! hth

I had this problem also a few times, what I found is at a distance, I spray my PAM oil on the wax paper, so that the image Im working on doesnt stick. Ive tried to sarahn wrap, or plastic paper and it just doesnt lay flat for me even by pulling it tight.

I wonder if its starting to thaw a little? Thats the only reason I could think it would stick.

I like the PAM idea, and I'm definitely going to try it. I find that spray oil solves about 95% of my sticking problems in cake decorating! icon_biggrin.gif That is one awesome cake, by the way. thumbs_up.gif
