Here on CC, I have seen some cakes that have decorations made out of chocolate transfer. Such as the superman here

I like that look and wanted to try it myself. However, when searching for chocolate transfer here and on google all I get are results for what appear to be premade image transfer sheets...? I am looking for instructions on how to do this type of homemade design. I'm assuming the technique is similar to doing colorflow. But I was hoping someone would link me to something that maybe describes in detail and exactly what materials I would need to try this out. Thanks - Christy

I'm wondering if it's like Frozen Buttercream transfer, except with colored cocoa butter.

Here's the FBCT tutorial:

I've read that people make their own chocolate transfer sheets by painting designs with colored cocoa butter. Then they chill it and slather on the chocolate and chill it again until it hardens.

I've never done any of this, though. I'd look up something along the lines of make your own chocolate transfer on a search engine like google. That's just me, though.

There is a lot of information here on CC for this. I just did my first one and I got everything I needed to know here. Go to the search page for forums, type in chocolate AND transfer, then select topic title only. You will get a ton of info. CC is broke, so you won't get anything past the first page (hopefully that will get fixed soon), so that is why you need to select topic title only.
