Here is a link that I found. What I did, was I typed "Harley Davidson Logo" in yahoo images, and came up with this one, plus others.

Here's the one I used on my Harley cake (pic in my photos). There are two views of this cake in my slideshow. One is a side view that shows the flames going over the side. A link to the slideshow is at the bottom of my post if you want to see it...

Attached is the pattern I used to outline the flames. Uploading it reduced it's size. If you'd like the full size version, just PM me.

I've gotten some PMs so I'll post a link to the full size flame pattern. I've also cleaned it up a little to make it easier to use. You can resize it if you need it larger or smaller.

The way I used it was...

I iced the cake using crusting BC. Then I put the logo on the cake. While I was waiting for the icing to crust, I cut the flame pattern out of paper. After the icing crusted, I lined the pattern up with the logo and pushed it into the crusted icing. When you lift off the pattern, it will have left an outline to follow. Go over the outline with black BC and then fill in using a star tip and a bag filled with half yellow, half orange BC. Hope that helps..it's a fun cake to make.

that's a great idea lisa...thanks! I tried typing "Harley Davidson logo" into the yahoo images search and I kept getting a lot of images that pixelated when I tried to print them in a larger size. None of them would work. Thank you for he links and pics!

Ok I must be doing something wrong...itried the links, I tried the search in yahoo, I've tried everything, but each image keeps pixelating when I try to enlarge it at all. Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong? Ihave a graphic software program I use to print in reverse for my BCTs. It's called The Print Shop 20.0. I download an image from the net, import the image into Print Shop and then print it "reversed for image transfer". But it lookspixelated and distorted when it prints! I'm getting really stressed over this...

If it's because you're trying to enlarge...try using this image. It's huge and would only need to be reduced.

If it's happening only when you print, try resetting your printer to default values.
