My First Gel Transfer

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
This is the first gel transfer I've done and it was alot easier and faster than the character pan. The only problem I had was my string work. For some reason it kept breaking after it had been on the cake for about 15 minutes. After taking it off several times, I finally added some gel and it worked. I had to add sprinkles to cover up the problem. All in all, I was pleased. Oh, by the way, the name of the person was not added on until I got to the party, Mom didn't call me with the spelling and of course, I forgot my camera.

Hi Stephanie214! I think this cake is so pretty and cute; Great job and the writting is so nice and neat, never would have thought that there was a slight problem. How did you do your transfer? And what type of gel did you use, cause some gels run and I would not want to use something that would run on a cake. Thanks!

First off, let me apologize for the picture being so big. This is my first picture and didn't know how to do one of those click on to see pictures.

Thanks jscakes, I did post in gallery.

2cakes, thank you. I used waxed paper and permanent marker to trace the picture and then turned the wax paper picture over on the opposite side to get mirror image and used the Wilton Piping Gel with tip #2.

Great job Stephanie! I'd say you've mastered that technique! icon_smile.gif When you did the gel transfer, did you use a colored gel or tinted? I've tried doing it with a clear gel and had a hard time seeing it well enough- maybe I just need better lighting in my kitchen?? LOL Thanks for sharing your success with us, it helps us all.
Time that you enjoyed wasting wasn't wasted.

[i]Hi Mchelle,
It was the yellow double pudding mix. I always add sour cream to my mixes.

Hi momsandraven,
I used the Wilton clear piping gel with no tinting. I didn't have any problem seeing the gel on the icing but when I use the character pan, I can't see the outlines on the cake...go figure! icon_cry.gif
