If you just lay it ontop of the cake (not standing up) you will not be able to remove it without breaking it into many pieces. I would cut right through it. It's very thin, it won't be hard to cut through. If you fill in the back you will have a much stronger transfer, and then I think I would pick it off before cutting. Although I never do the back when I lay them on top of the cake.

Just wanted to add my thanks for the time and effort it took for you to do this. I love RIT and am always trying to encourage people to do them, the possibilities are endless, but no way could I do a tutorial like this, you've explained everything very clearly and your pictures are wonderful! icon_biggrin.gif I saved the entire set of directions to powerpoint and will not only refer to them myself but will share with others! So thanks again for doing it in the first place and then posting them again after they were removed, definately needs to be added to the tutorial/articles sections! thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif Andrea

Is it best to do the outline in black or can it be done in white as well?

When I do cartoon characters (which is what I usually do) I do a black outline. But you can do any color. I have seen some RIT on CC that had the same color outline as the flood color. That looked really good, I think it was a pregnant lady. If you do same color as you fill with you don't have to wait so long for the outline to dry either since you don't have to worry about the bleeding. With white I guess you have the same issue as the black but reversed, that the other colors might bleed into the white.

Thanks! Wow, you made a powerpoint of it icon_biggrin.gif Well, have fun with it! I'm just happy that people like this. Transfers is the only hope for me since I'm hopeless with fondant modeling... can't make an animal that looks proportional to save my life. I did do Bob the Builder for my nephew many, many years ago when he turned two, and one kid at the party said "Is that Bob? Bob is not that fat!" icon_biggrin.gif I thought it was funny, my Bob was really fat. The kid's mom was very embaressed, poor thing. She kept telling me how wonderful the cake was icon_smile.gif

Oh, your welcome! I'm happy you got the smurf on the cake anyway, but I know the feeling when it doesn't turn out the way you pictured it. I love the idea of a smurfette cake though icon_biggrin.gif I might have to try that some day.

Your smurf looks perfect! Like I told you, the flaws you see when you make it is not noticable when it is finished and on the cake. I'm sorry for your trouble with the cake, but of course the birthday girl loved it, how could she not thumbs_up.gif
