Is this even possible?!?!

post #1 of 53
Thread Starter 
I have a lady that wants cookies for her baby shower. It is only 2 dozen so this wouldn't be a horrible thing for me to do, but she wants the picture from her shower invites to be on the cookies, not the wording but just the baby....Could I do a frozen butter cream transfer on the cookies? My first thought was RI but I don't really want to because it is so easy to break.....and they have to be delivered over and hour away! So if I can avoid RI I would love it!

So what do you think....is it possible to do this in a FBCT?

Also since I don't know much about FBCT...since I just figured out you can do this....can I make them and put them on the cookies the night before? Or should I do them the day I deliver them? Or once they thaw are they just like BC?

TIA

If you have time, I would make a printable file with all those in the size you need and send to Icing Images and have them print you an edible image to cut and put on the cookies.

Do you have an edible image copier, if so they have the sheets with circles on them that you could copy the image onto and then on to the cookies. My local grocery store makes edible images for me, I have to pay a little more for them as I don't have a working copier right now.

They are going to be about 3.5 to 4 inch circle cookies.....so the Icing Images won't work......and the cookies are due in 2 weeks

You could have them printed on a 1/4 sheet frosting sheet and cut them out. Just make the image the size you need and have the store print it for you. You should be able to cut it with the cookie cutter. Making 24 FBCs is going to be time consuming.

Could you print them on a 8 x 11 sheet and then cut the circles out. Just make a copy of as many as you can get on a sheet and then have it printed on the edible image sheet, cut around and then apply to cookies. I don't know how to word that technically, hope you understand what I am saying... icon_rolleyes.gif

I suggest you make the baby figure as a CT (chocolate transfer). It's much the same as a FBCT but in my opinion easier to do. Just outline the baby, then flood inside that w/melted chocolate. And would taste greaticon_smile.gif

You should be able to shrink the image down to fit. Honesly, the FBCT wouldn't be the best option since it will stay on the soft side and could easily be damaged. If you do it in RI right onto the cookie then it wn't be fragile, and unless you are making them really thin it shouldn't be so fragile it would snap.

My first choice would be edible images... it would be super easy. My second choice would be to use royal icing directly on the cookie. You could even make the babies and place them onto the wet RI flood on the cookies. You can drop the white right onto the wet yellow to make the clouds. Just ake sure you charge well for all the work. icon_smile.gif

Why won't it work? Just open a Microsoft Publisher document (or something similar) and make the clip art to be the 3" or whatever size you need...then multiply to as many as will fit on a page...then cut them out by hand after you get the image printed.

Icing Images ships lightning fast, you have time...or a local grocery store will do it too.

I talked to her and she doesn't want an edible transfer, she wants something that will be soft to eat. So I guess RI is out of the questions also. So I guess my question is If i ice the cookie with buttercream would I be able to place a FBCT on it?

And this where you as the decorater with all the knowledge explain to her what can and can not be done. The only other option left is cutting everthing out in fondant and putting it on the cookie while it's warm. But to get the perfect baby would be the edible transfer. Lets see then when your done.

I honestly don't even like edible transfers....I think they look "store bought" and that isn't why I started doing this.....plus I am not doing the whole picture, it is just the baby and without the dots on his mask and fins.

you could use a cricut and scal. Bring in the image of the baby and layer the different pieces with different colors of fondant or gumpaste...just a suggestion:0)

Sounds like you really want to do it in FBCT.
It's a cute picture, good luck!

I'm not sure FBCT can stack on top of each other which would make packaging and traveling a little more difficult.
