Help / advice with.. Piping royal icing transfers???

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hello cake experts!

 

I have a cake order for next week for a birthday cake, covered in white fondant with red lettering.  I want to write on the cake with royal icing, but I am too scared to do it free hand!   Normally with letters I use fondant cut outs but this cake I want to use icing as it quite alot of letters... ¨Happy 60th Birthday Grandad¨.

 

I have read somewhere on the internet that you can print out the phrase and use it as a template, by putting it a plastic sleeve sheet and pipe over it.  I have just done a quick trial today and wating for the icing to dry.  This seems too good to be true!!!!!!!!

 

Does this actually work???? Or will it break when I try and lift it off the plastic and onto to the cake?? 

 

How long does it take to dry??  How do I attach the letters to the fondant cake???

 

thanks,

 

Sarah

I usually tape a piece of parchment paper to my print out, then trace.  It will dry within a day or so - depends on how big.  Obviously, the longer you can leave it to dry the better.  And always make extra in case one of the letter breaks!
