Melysa--
I meant to also say... your chocolate transfer cake was perfect! I'll keep trying and maybe one day I'll get it right.

Has anyboby tried doing a transfer on a square cake? Would you do each side seperately? Or try to wrap it in all one piece?

Thanks so much for the link to the video, sounds great.

Has anyone tried or knows how to transfer the sheets directly onto fondant without the chocolate?

I heard that you can do this but don't know how.

Cake happy - while experimenting with grocery store quality chocolate you may want to look at the ingredient list on the back of the bag. I find that some chocolates (nestle's white chocolate - for example) is made with palm kernel oil instead of cocoa butter (cheaper for manufacturers). Bakers chocolate uses cocoa butter....try that. I agree on the tempering response too!
Leave the morsels for the choc chip cookies bake sales and the bark stuff well... leave it at the store. icon_wink.gif
Always remember, the better the chocolate the better the output.

We use a mixture of Merckens and Peters from CK South. Since it's chocolate coating, it doesn't need to be tempered. We just melt the chips down, spread chocolate on the transfers, and then create the bow or place it on chocolate or cake. After refrigerating for a bit, we then peel off the backing.

As far as the transfers directly onto fondant, there was a demonstration at ICES. We were told it involved using an iron. Our local cake club is meeting this Monday. I can let you all know what I learn then. We're teaching other how to use the transfers!

I just used a transfer sheet on one of my cakes this last weekend. I was thrown off a little bit by the thickness of the sheet (I'm used to working with acetate which is more stable, my transfer sheet was more like a thick plastic bag quality), so the finished ribbon wasn't as nice and shiny as I'm used to. Also, I don't have the perfection strips they use in the videos, so usually I'm just spreading the chocolate with a silicone brusch. Well, it didn't work well with the transfer - it got all smudged. Good thing the cake was for us, so no harm. But follow their instructions to pour the chocolate and just spread it with a cookie sheet or something similar.

Interesting site, thanks for posting.
Unfortunately, we don't have transfer sheets around here, yet.

Always wondered how those things worked. Thanks!
