Frozen Buttercream Transfer On Side Of Cake?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Can you use a frozen buttercream transfer to decorate the side of an iced cake? I am not sure if it will slide of once it thaws. Any thoughts?

I've wondered the same thing... I'd love to find out if anyone knows!

Yes you can. Ive done it many times. Just make sure they arent too big. Sometimes people really pile that icing up and they come out super thick. If your FBCT is half an inch thick its probably going to fall off the cake. Keep it thin and when it comes time to put it on press it gently into the side of the cake. Sometimes Ive even put a little blob of BC where Im going to put the transfer and then piped a little border around the FBCT to help secure it to the cake. Ive not had one fall off yet.

I've done in once, on two different sides of the cake, with out a problem. icon_smile.gif

Frozen or thaw it should be like any other decorations on the cake. Just make sure when you put it on there you really press on it to attach it.

I did frozen buttercream transfers on the sides of a 49ers cake that I made. They didn't fall/slide off. Like TexasSugar said, make sure you press them on really well. I had a few spots where mine didn't want to press in quite all the way so I went back and piped a little buttercream the same color as the edge of the FBCT behind it to fill the gap to make sure it adhered well. It worked pretty well. Here's the link in case you want to see it:

Thanks for your posts. I made one and put it on the side of the cake and so far so good. I am a little worried about delivering it in this heat, but as long as I crank the ac in the vehicle I should be okay.

Is there a place to upload a picture to and have a transfer made?
