Hi, I tried this morning to do a cake with horizontal stripes on it. It was fondant with fondant stripes, so I tried using what I remember of Jessicakes technique - draw out template on greasproof paper, coat in a thin layer of marg, then lay out stripe on top. My problem was that, although I'd also put a thin smear of marg on the outside of the cake, the stripes just stuck to the paper rather than the cake.
Am I missing out a step? Why wouldn't it transfer properly? The fondant I used for the stripes was quite old and a bit dry - do you think that would have made the difference?
It was just for a fun trial this time, but I would like to know for future use and she has removed her instructions from her website pending "developments". Thanks.
