Okay here is a question I asked somewhere else. Can you put a BCT on top of a cake that has MMF on it? I want to try MMF and thought my family would be the best "victims", but I have to to the BCT of Polly Pocket for my daughter's b-day. Oh and thanks SO much for all the help I LOVE BCT!!

Connie,
Look in your printer properties. You should have there or in advanced properties a place to do a flip or mirror image. Hope this helps!!

On the top above "things you will need" it says to fill in using a star tip.

I'm still a little confused about the outline. I'm going to michaels for my course 2 class 1 tonight and wanted to get something for the outline there, what can i use?

Did my first BCT last night. Looked great when I held it to the light. Froze 90 minutes and then transferred to cake to be delivered first thing this morning. This morning all the colors have run together! It's a disaster! I have to start all over! What did I do wrong?

What tip do you use to fill in your piped picture? This sounds really neat. Can't wait to try it. icon_biggrin.gif

I just did my first Butter Cream Transfer Image but instead of using wax, parchment o plastic paper y used an Avery Cristal Clean Sheet protector and a clipboard. I forgot to print a mirrored image but since I was using an ultra clear sheet protecto, it was no problem. I just flipped it and did it on the other side. Ones I was dome I removes de paper image... Looked under de clipboard (It's a transparent one) to see my transfer... Finished following the instructions... And now it's in the freezer.

I iced my cake with whipped cream. Can the whipped cream stands the weight of the BCT?

I just tried doing the BCT for the second time. It went well, but after placing it on the cake and removing the wax paper, the lines of where I had piped in the bc stilled showed. Did I not press down hard enough to settle the bc? Has this happened to anyone else?

I've never had a totally line free FBCT. I blend the imperfections with a brush and then when it crusts over, smooth it flat. I found the instructions on this site a little over a year ago and this has now become one of my favorite decorating techniques!

the only color I've ever had problems with bleeding is the black. ANd only during the defrost period when it has so much condensation. I just lay a papertowel over it every minute or so until it's done condensating so it won't bleed into the other colors. I've never had any problems coming from the fridge (but I could see it being a problem in more humid climates).

Has anyone had any luck with using the FBCT on the sides of a cake?
Thanks!

The first two I did had transfers on the side. The bowling cake I did for my daughter's birthday last year was a solid transfer on the side

And the pokemon cake I did for my son's birthday had 12 separate transfers on the side and one large transfer for the entire back (the background is part of the transfer)

You have to hold it in place until it adhere's (which can take a few minutes). It was tricky at first, but it did work.
