Transfer Cake Patterns with the T-Pin Transfer Method
This is an easy way to transfer cake patterns to your cake top so you can just fill in your picture or design with icing:
First, make a copy of your pattern that you are going to use. Enlarge it if necessary to fit the cake size that you need.
Cut a piece of parchment paper to cover the pattern. Next, use a T pin (a pin shaped like a T) and punch holes along all the lines on the pattern.
Then, put a thin coat of icing on your cake top. This has to set for at least 20 minutes.
Finally, lay the parchment punched pattern on the set icing. Lightly rub the top of the parchment pattern with your fingers. After you have rubbed the entire pattern surface, lift the parchment paper off of the cake top. You will see your pattern on the cake top.
At some point in the future, we hope to have cake patterns of all
cakes that you can download to help make them easier to decorate. For
now there are
