Hi Dawn,

I wanted to know , at what point in time do you add the fine detail on the transfer for example the eyes, nose, mouth , etc?

I was just wondering how thick should I outline the image? And about how thick does the transfer end up being in the end?

Hello,

I am wondering what would be the best way to put the Mets logo onto a cake. I have cake pan #2105-1234, it is the wilton baseball glove with a baseball in the middle. I will attach a pic to show you what I'm talking about... . I want to put the Mets logo where the ball is. The diameter of the ball is approximately 4 1/2". I will probably do the rest of the glove (fingers) alternating between blue and orange.
What I am wondering is how to do the bridge and the word "Mets" of the logo over the blue buildings without getting it all smudged? Can you put a bc transfer on top of another bc transfer? What would be the best way to do this? It is for my boyfriend's birthday in September. I am also attaching a picture of the Mets logo so you know what I'm talking about.

Thanks!

Hi Dawn,

I am attempting my 1st transfer and just had a question about step #8 of your article. It says to edge the transfer w/ the same color icing as your cake. I'm assuming that means to trace the transfer around the outline and then cover the back?!? I just want to make sure I'm doing this right. Thanks for a great article. I've been having a blast trying this out!

In all the years I have used wax paper, I thought it was the same on both sides! icon_redface.gif

I have taken one wilton class and Im actually not done with it(ive done 2 lessons).I was looking for a yu-gi-oh kit for birthday cake and couldnt find it,because yu-gi-oh has been "out" for 2 yrs now(go fig) any way some one told me to try this and I thought it looked WAY too hard.But after wastig a whole day looking for yu-gi-oh and finding an expensive kit that I didnt even like (plced on order) I thought hat do I have to lose?I gave it a shot..its still in the freezer but I can tell its excellent.Ill be glad to post the pictures next sunday.Im freezing the tranfer longer because when it gets warm it gets really soft and this cake has an hour ride.So I ended up putting it on wax paper after it got firm enough from the board and then taped it up in a package then put it in a ziplock bag.I ended up having to use the premade black the only thing is I did learn not to use too thin of a tip,It breaks and cracks the longer it sits.This takes time but is worth it! icon_biggrin.gif

AmandaInPa-
why dont you do a star fill in for the glove and ten make a tranfer for the mets symol.Just use her dirrections here.It should be easy.Instead of holding a baseball it would be holding the mets logo.I think it could be great!

Hi dawn

My question is actually regarding the buttercream recipy. I'm in Australia and the australian metric cup is different to the American metric cup.
So the amounts I'm after is 1 cup of crisco is how much in grams. I'm assuming the crisco you are referring to is found wrapped in paper and found near the butter in the fridge section of the supermarket. Not the vegetable oil also know as crisco.
And the 3 sticks of butter? How much is that? The butter here comes wrapped in foil and the smallest amount is 250grams.
Also the powdered sugar is that also know as icing sugar or confectioner's sugar?
Thank you in advance
Veronica
