check out "frozen buttercream transfer" on youtube.



Its super cool. Basicaly you can take a pic and draw it out in icing on wax paper. Then you freeze it and peel it off.



I did an amazing wizard of oz cake with all tbe characters.

I found a tutorial on making buttercream super smooth. Basically you get it as flat as possible with a cake spatula and then after it gets a thin crust smooth it out with a papertowel, the viva kind without a pattern. This was my daughters cake after using that technique.

Not perfect but I probably could have gotten it there had I put more effort into it, LOL
I did this too for my youngest daughters 2nd

Buttercream! I had it on my wedding cake because I detest fondant! Yuck!! lol



You can color the buttercream and decorate it that way or you can check out rice paper transfers. I used it on my husbands birthday cake

It came out really nice! They also have tons of hello kitty designs as well. I got his on google for 9.99 for the both of the transfers.

No, I think that's regular frosting, but used with one of these:
