Pathetic BCT - please look! - Page 2

Thread Starter 
I believe www.sugarcraft.com and www.candylandcrafts.com both carry them.

I like both sites. They are great for filling in small areas.

Just in case you are interested in a different method, I don't do BTC but use Royal icing to do my characters... Its pretty much tracing the image into wax paper, tracing and then filling.... Thicker for tracing, thinner for filling. Please look at my cake photos on the bottom tab. The ones with characters, except cake toppers, I did with this method..

Thanks for the info. Your royal icng transfers look nice. What recipe do you use? Does that get really hard? I have never worked with royal icing except to "glue" together a gingerbread house. Do you have to remove it or can you eat the RIT?

This is the first time I've heard of this and I've looked at some of the pictures - OH my goodness, it's remarkable. I NEED to know how to do this - can someone help?

I use the Wilton recipe of Meringue Powder, Confectioner Sugar (10x) and water...

Yes, it gets hard but its fragile. What I have done to make it stronger is to leave attach to it the wax paper. Just cut around it and don't remove the paper. Or I have also done, for example on the buildings you see on my Kim Possible cake, I made the building by drawing them onto cardboard, and filling directly onto the cardboard with the Royal icing. I taped a sucker stick behind the building and what's inserted into the cake is the sucker stick. So you don't have to worry about the royal icing melting into the cake.

You can eat the royal icing figures if you want. I don't like the taste, but some people do... But it won't hurt them if they eat it.... Unless you attach it to the cardboard.. icon_lol.gif

I'm not sure if anyone answered this, but yes you tape the picture to the underside of the plexiglass. This way you can peel the picture off after making your outlines and see the icing through the bottom of the plexiglass.

Also, I use plexiglass marketed by GalleryGlass as styrene blanks. It's plexiglass the size of paper, and you get two (I think) per package. GalleryGlass is at most craft stores, so it might be easier to find than going to home depot and getting a piece cut.
