I'm new here and just learned of the FBCT and feel in love with the idea. Printed the instructions, tried it last weekend for a Disney Princess cake for GD 2nd BD. Worked on the layers til 1:00 am. Concerned that after each layer I would freeze for about 15-30 min, but it wasn't frozen solid, could swipe finger across and it felt slick and maybe a little color would come off on finger. Froze until Saturday afternoon after frosted cake and let crust. Was VERY CAREFUL taking from freezer to cake. Placed on cake and pulled off the wax paper (slowly)- and along came most of the frosted picture!!!! I was moritified.!
I was soo upset. So I tried to fix it by painting it with frosting, which didn't come out too well on faces especially.
I don't know what I did wrong, can someone help me? I think this is an awesome technique if I can do it right!
The party on Sunday was saved as daughter brought 3 plastic Disney princesses that was used at another party. Placed them on the cake and frosted around them, over the ruined pic. no one knew until we removed the figures.
