tiffany,Next time I try this I will pay attention to keeping the tip burried in the icing. Also, I will try smoothing over the top with thinned background color icing. I've seen too many pictures of other's fbct's and many of them are not raised or at least don't look raised so I would like to know how people do this.Thanks again,Julie
Peg,I just tried this with a store brand paper towel. I found that I could do it with the one where I used thicker icing for the fill in because it got firm after sitting a while. But the one where I used the thinner icing for the fill-in - that one is taking longer to firm up if it ever will and I just got icing on the paper towel because of it. Also, I wonder if Viva paper towels don't have impressions on them. I'll have to look a them next time I go to the...
The picture in the middle (the improved one with no worms in the filling) has waves in it. Maybe this is why people put that final background cover over the top? But won't that shmush the outlines?Oh and I let it sit in the freezer after I outlined.Thanks again.This is frustrating.
Hi,I tried another FBCT today. This time I made some changes per everyone's instructions. It's getting better but still not totally the way I would like.Picture 1 - Piping consistency: soft/medium - fill-in consistency - mediumYou can see the wormy lines in the fill ins.Picture 2 - Piping consistency: thicker than in picture 1 - fill-in consistency - very soft. There are no worms in the filling, however the few jabs that you see are a result of my using a wet paintbrush...
My thoughts exactly. I hope we are right about this - for my case anyway.ThanksJulieThat's an excellent idea!
Thank you all for your replies. I really appreciate the input.If you are interested, I'm following the steps you see in this youtube video of somebody doing a FBCT.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CV2DZDuv9XA&feature=PlayList&p=6A2B6BAAE1E094AC&playnext_from=PL&index=27If you watch this, you'll see that after the person outlines and fills in with color around and on top of the outline, the person puts a layer of background icing on top of the whole thing in white. Maybe...
I used tip #2. I can't figure out why this is happening to me but not others.
Here are some pictures so you can see the smushed lines.On the one of the skates, you can see the smushed line on the skate on the left. ON the other one, her eyebrows - I did not pipe these this wide so I know it got smushed. I used a #2 tip to outline. I know I did not make this line this wide when I piped it. I'm doing something wrong and I don't know what. I've looked at other FBCT's from other people and I don't see smushed lines.Thanks,Julie
Hi,I experimented with a frozen butter cream transfer and it did not come out the way I had hoped. I drew a picture first then outlined it using black, thinned down but not too too think butter cream. I did everything like the video on youtube said to do and the end result was that the black outlines were smushed and not straight lines. Is this because I used thinned buttercream. Do I need to use stiffer icing to outline? Also, maybe I shouldn't smooth out the icing...
This is just too exciting. To be accepted to a great school and if it is in a new city for you, then you have that too! I would love to learn with the masters as you will be doing.Congratulations!!!
