Great job! I've been wanting to try that myself. I'm inspired!

I've had trouble with the candy colors, too. I finally just bought the Merkens wafers in all the colors they offer, and I add just a little bit of candy color to them if I need to darken or change the color a bit. This seems to work better for me.

Thanks everyone, I really appreciate the nice comments. I am excited about these CT's now. I hope my son's birthday cake comes out like I hope. I will post a pic this weekend.

This is great. I have done plenty of color flow but not the CT. Is it the same basic technique?

I did my first FBCT a few weeks ago, Now I'll have to try the chocolate.
I think i might like it better. Thanks for all the tips! I've already printed them out so they will be handy.

Well it's more like a FBCT than color flow. Here is a tutorial on CT's

Let me just add one more tip...After I posted my pic of pooh (okay so I kept looking at it and moving it around) but anyway I ended up breaking it! AAAHHH! So I just didnt have it thick enough in the back, especially at the seams. So make sure you make it nice and thick in the back.. I had to make pooh again...boo. But I think he is even better now. Lesson learned!

Just thought I'd post a couple of the CT's (I am hoping not to break before the party..) for the B-day cake.

Let me get this straight...it is pretty much like the fbct but instead of icing you would use melted chocolate?? I am very familiar with melted chocolate because I have been melting candy and putting in moldsd for years!! I might have to try this.
