Thank you soooo much! I've just spent hours on that site! This is something we don't see a lot of Down Under, but I've managed to find a stockist for the transfer sheets and can't wait to try!

I can't wait to be able to try some of these!

I wish September would hurry up and get here, so I can quit stressing over the groom's cake I have to do, and start playing again.

Thanks so much for posting this!

Has anyone actually tried these? I did last weekend. Just thought I would share something with you guys.

I melted chocolate morsels to put on the transfer sheet, and that was not the best choice. I think you are supposed to use a chocolate that will set up real hard (such as chocolate bark or candy melts).

It looked pretty, but when I tried to stick the geometric shapes I cut out into the top of my cake... the pieces just limped over. I'm not sure if it was the ganache (which was room temp) that I put on top of the cake that made it do that, or if the chocolate that I used on the transfer sheet was just too soft. I even put them in the refrigerator for a bit to set. Just thought I'd spare some of you from going through what I did. icon_cry.gif

Any suggestions are welcome.

i've since used mine that i ordered a couple months back. the results were great- i did use chocolate chips.

i've recently learned after a heartache or two (ok maybe dozens) from soft chocolate that doesnt set up- it has to do with tempering properly. unfortunately i 'm still in the learning process with handling chocolate the right way, so i cant fully explain it off the top of my head, but i definately remember information explaining that it will remain sticky and unset sometimes if it isnt correctly tempered (melted and cooled at the right heat-) .

Melysa-- Thanks so much for the links. I'm going to read up on that subject. It was upsetting to do all that work and watch the chocolate pieces just fall over on the cake. Thanks again. Hopefully this will help a lot of people avoid what we've been through.
