I need to make a topper with a bratz doll & was just wondering which one of the two would hold up better & not brake as easily..i've never done a CT before but if it is a bit more solid I'll definitely give it a try

I haven't used a chocolate transfer, but I did use Royal Icing for a Superman logo! It came out great and everyone loved it. I did make two just to be on the safe side, in case one broke, luckly I didn't need the extra.

I found that I was able to do the logo over a couple of days too, rather than in just one sitting (I don't know about you, but when I have a cake due, TONS of distractions come up)!

Good Luck

Either one will work. They are both thin and can break, so you just have to be careful. You can add more chocolate to the back of the CT to make it a bit more sturdier.

I prefer the CT over RI. A big plus that CT has over RI is that it will harden and be able to be handled after sitting in the fridge for 20 mins. RI takes at least a day to completely dry. The CT's also taste a lot better than RI. icon_smile.gif

If you look at my pics you'll see all sorts of CTs.

You could also make a plaque out of fondant, gumpaste, or pastillage.
Then make an edible image & place it on the plaque using royal icing as a border. This could be used as a keep sake after the event. :0)
