Thanks icon_smile.gif Yes I did place it directly after and I used my finger to go over it. I'll keep your tips in my mind though and try again!

can anyone tell me how the FBCT taste when its on the cake. does it melt? i have never tried this before and i am just wondering if it melts and does it make your cake soggy.

No, it doesn't melt, it just softens a little bit as it thaws. Mine kept their shape and tasted just like the rest of the buttercream on the cake.

Good luck icon_biggrin.gif

Hi Dawn:

Thanks for the instructions. I live in Hawaii and found that the BCTs tend to have condensation because of our humidity. Is there a way to prevent this?

I also found that using overhead transfer sheets work really well. The BCTs come off very nicely...and you can reuse these sheets.

I want to transfer Disney's Ariel onto a cake for my daughter's birthday. I have done a transfer before, but I am concerned with the facial features coming out correctly? I have previously done cartoon characters that this didn't apply to. She is more human like? what do you think??

I think it will still be okay. I would THINK if you use a smaller tip to get the details on her face and make sure you do them in the right order there should be no problem. If your like me, it can't be worse than free drawing it. LOL

If I have the picture I want to transfer already printed out, but it wasn't done in reverse mode, is there any other way to continue with the process, or do I have to reprint it in reverse mode?

Well, you'd have to either have to be able to see through your page and use it back side up or copy it once on parchment and then flip that over to do your icing.

Depending on our design, if there's no writing or set design, say like a flag, and it really wouldn't alter your idea, then you could just use it the way it it. Does that make sense?

Tonight I did 2 buttercream transfers, my kids birthdays are 11/21/95 & 11/25/96...so I made each one of them their own cake....my first attempt at this...everything went well....I outlined the pictures on waxed paper, then I filled it in, I froze it, baked, torted and stuffed a cake, made cupcakes for the CCC.

As I am ready to make the transfer, I was getting very excited to see how this would all turn out...but when I removed the wax paper it looked like my marker was running out of ink...it was splotchy...I should have used more frosting......

Other than that I think for my very first 2 cakes I did ok...

What do you think???

Are you kidding!?! Those are GREAT!! What type of marker did you use. You could put your design under a peice of wax paper , tape it down and then outline it in black icing with a tip #2 or #3,then fill in without having to tranfer your drawing to the wax paper. Truly I think those look awesome!!!
