Came up with a new writing technique - Page 2

post #16 of 29
I too use the piping gel method...but, I also print whatever I want to say out in whatever font that I want, then I trace it with the buttercream and freeze it, kind of like the bct method...then take it out and place it on the cake...it works great for me..

Now that you ladies have this new technique to try out, check out this site! www.fontfreak.com Lots of free fonts that you can download. icon_lol.gif
Time that you enjoyed wasting wasn't wasted.

Missnnaction ~ I've never done a BCT, so bear with me. I'm working through this in my mind. You print out your font, put wax paper on it, do your butter cream and freeze it? (Is that anywhere close to right? lol!)

Is it hard to get off the paper?

yup... icon_biggrin.gif that is exactly what I do... no, it comes right off of the wax paper...you just press it lightly on the cake and the paper peels right off.

How do I make it a mirror image? I can't fugure that out.

when you are printing, go to print options..it should be something that says mirror image or something to that effect...if you still can't figure it out..print it out like you would normally then flip the paper over...it will be backwards ..that's what you want...so that when you trace it you can just flip it onto your cake.... icon_smile.gif hope this helped

Can I check with you guys, how long does a buttercream transfer need to be in the freezer for? can meringue type buttercreams work as well?
thanks!
