I wanted to weigh in on this old discussion because I couldn't find anything new about it....I did my own test today with the supreme frosting sheets from ink4cakes.  I put two test images on chocolate frosting and gave it about 8 hours to see if there was any bleeding or blending of the colors. There was none.  So I put my full size image on the cake I was making for this weekend.  So....at least in the case of the Supreme sheets from ink4cakes  they definitely can be...
I have the PIXMA IP3600.  I have put in all new cartridges, and printed a test page. Everything looks great on the test page EXCEPT the small black ink cartridge.    So, I put in a brand new ink cartridge and still it doesn't show.   For this reason I do not believe it's the cartridge, but perhaps something else causing it.   I have been getting by as most of the photos I've printed most recently don't have much black in them, but I tried to print black words and...
I actually heard back from the baker and she was very nice and shared her method...which is nothing more than freehand art and frosting!  She said she didn't do any transfers at all, but simply frosted the cake over the chocolate in green, and then did each design of the tunnel, tire, dog, and jump freehand.  She didn't expound but I imagine she piped and then used a brush to smooth them out.   Her web site is www.692cake.com She has invited me to stop in next time I'm in...
I think in this particular case the baker did indeed mean to frost in chocolate first because I spoke with the person who ordered the cake and she said she requested chocolate frosting....also, in looking at this bakery's web site it looks like they use this technique a lot.  It really appears to be the same consistency and finish as the transfers and I am wondering if it is possible to do a large, rectangular transfer, and put that on the cake. Then put your smaller...
I now wonder if the green might even have been one big, flat transfer, now that i uderstand the transfer process. It's so flat, smooth and thin. Donna
Thank you for the info everyone. There is a layer of chocolate icing on top under the buttercream. I don't know how she got the green on the chocolate without them co-mingling. I am going to have to try just to see if I can do it. The chocolate seems thicker than a crumb coat. In my world, I'd have to freeze it and have a hard surface to work on before I could do the green over the chocolate. Could you folks, who are more experienced than I, put that green icing...
I recently saw this cake an event. I am stumped! It was frosted in a chocolate buttercream, but then the top layer of green and all of the art work is in a soft icing. It is smooth. At first I was thinking air brush, but it is icing and not thick, but too thick to be sprayed on, plus, it shows a place or two,that appears it is spread on . Plus the decorations on top are hand done, and outlined in black. Are they painted on? They too are smooth. What technique made...
