A Fondant Picture Transfer is a great technique to add edible fondant images onto your cake. This simple, easy and effortless tutorial will show you how to create this strawberry shortcake image for your next cake but the technique can be used with most other images or characters as well.
Today's Tip is contributed to us by the lovely Dina Nakad of Miettes. Dina is not just an amazing cake decorator but also a very sweet friend.
Here's a short bio shared by Dina for us
I am Dina Nakad, founder of Miettes. I've always loved cooking and my baking passion started when I was living in San Francisco; I wanted to make healthy desserts so that my family and friends would enjoy something decadent yet healthy and I succeeded in doing that.
My cake decorating passion started two years ago when friends and family started asking me to make their kids' birthday parties' cakes. "miettes" started soon after. I consider myself still in the learning process, I am completely self-taught, I watch online classes to learn.
My cake idol is Maggie Austin and ruffles are the one-item I love doing the most. 3D modeling is still something I have to work on and I am really enjoying the 2D version.
Hope you enjoy this tutorial!!

How to make a Fondant Picture Transfer (pin)
This method can be done with any picture that you want to replicate on your cake. It's even easier than a Frozen Buttercream Transfer method.
It's really very versatile. For example you could use this method for your favorite Santa cut out on your Christmas Cake and not worry about the bleeding buttercream colors.
I used the same method on my previous cake Frosted Christmas Cake - I did not share any progress pictures because I knew Dina had done this awesome tutorial for us.
Be sure to visit Dina on her Facebook page Miettes and share some cake Love.

Hi, very nice website!
I wonder if you could provide guidance on how I can apply an edible image to cover a entire fondant cake. I have seen cakes in which one piece of image covers the whole cake, but I am not sure how they manage to do this, specially when it comes to deal with the edges of the cake.
This is an example of what i mean: https://goo.gl/images/MHTzE6
Hey Katy - I think that is an icing sheet - just like fondant but comes already printed out and has a backing - you drape it on the cake and smooth it as much as you can before you remove the backing. You can also panel a cake - do the top circle first, then cut the icing sheet in strips - which can then be draped around. Hope this helps.
Can u pls help with d vegan version for this recipe??
