Yeah I had the same issue. You can iron it off, putting the iron directly onto the transfer. I started at the corners/sides, and it melted and shriveled up, peeling off of the shirt. It'll make your iron sticky afterwards, but if you rub a dryer sheet on the iron while it's still warm, it'll take the stickyness right off. The shirt might end up with a little bit of residue though.

awesome cakes, what's even more awesome is your school. if i'm correct, IB is international baccalaureate school?
i never heard of it, sounds pretty cool.

Yep, my school has the International Baccalaureate program. It consists of two years of IB classes, 3 years of a second language, Theory of Knowledge class, CAS forms/binder (50 hours of creativity, action, and service each), and an extended essay. So far it's been pretty tough, but it's actually kinda fun too. Smiley
9  COOKING / Dessert / fun with fondant - some cakes we've made (: UPDATE: ONE MORE ADDED on: August 13, 2008 01:03:45 PM
Background story: My friends and I are in the IB program at our school, which requires 50 hours of creativity. We chose to take Wilton cake decorating classes at Michaels. When we saw the materials list, and the prices that went along with it, we said there's no way we can afford it. Then I brought up the idea of homemade fondant, because I had always wanted to try it ever since I saw the tutorial online. So here are the results!

Our very first one...

We weren't sure how to lift the main piece onto the cake without breaking it. In retrospect, I think it could've used some water to soften it up. Also, the decorations are pretty thick. We wanted to make them thinner next time.


We were kinda rushed when we did the decorations on this one, because we were scheduled to hit up the beach Grin The bow is definitely not pretty.  Tongue


This was a birthday present for our friend. She's a chibi Sailor Moon, and was quite difficult to work with! I don't know why, but this batch of fondant was pure evil.


This batch of fondant, however, was fantastic. Smooooth, like buttah. However, when we dyed bits for the rings, the fondant became too wet and squishy, which led to their misshapenness, especially the black and blue ones. The 2oo8 is also fondant, carved by my friend. When she "glued" it onto the cake, it was off-center, so we made a little torch to even it out, and I love it Smiley

We made a cake about every week, and since we had no need for them (except the Sailor Moon cake), we donated them to the local community kitchen. We had no idea what it tasted like, or if it was even good Tongue Our first time ever eating a fondant-covered cake was when we ate Sailor Moon. (We felt so terrible cutting up her face! haha) I personally thought it was kinda weird, because fondant is chewy. We all just ended up peeling the fondant off, which led to pieces of face on our plates haha. Even though we worked hard on Sailor Moon, I didn't mind that we all peeled it off. Fondant is really just about presentation for me. Aaaanyways, I'm rambling and need to stop lol. Bye Smiley


Here's a cake we made today...

We planned on just doing a marble-y looking cake, but we had some left over colors from the Olympics cake, and thought they might be of some use. So.. random fish and starfish lol. And, when we baked the cake and tried to flatten it, the edges were really crisp I guess so that resulted in a more pushed in dome..? aka that's why there's a concave ring on the cake haha. But it all worked out I think, because the blue marble looks watery, and the ring kinda reminds me of a fishbowl, or a submarine window or something like that.

This will most likely be the last one for a while since school starts on Monday and we'll probably be superbusy. Hope you enjoyed them  Grin
