Pooh Bear Cream Cake



Guess what is the picture made of? It edible. :p


Answer:
I tried out another way for transferring picture onto cake, 'Chocolate Picture Transfer'.

It is the same method as 'Picture Outlines Transfer', just that for this you have to cover the whole picture with coloured chocolate(add colouring into melted white chocolate). Leave it to set. Then flip the 'Chocolate Picture Transfer' sheet onto the icing cake and peel off the plastic sheet. If you have a good patient, you may even add in some colour tone to the picture and it will appear more lively.

Don't you think that the chocolate picture look like 'Rice Paper Transfer Sheet'? My hubby even commented that this look nicer than the jelly picture. :) So now there is another alternative for me when making a birthday cake for my two boys. :)

Hi Happy Flour! I love this Pooh cake and would like to try my hands on decorating one for myself. I'm a big fan of Pooh! :) Can I check how do I add colour to white chocolate? Can I use Wilton gel colours? TIA! :)

Happy Flour said...

Hi Ange,

I'm using Wilton gel colouring. You just have to add one or two small drops into the melted white chocolate and stir until evenly mix.

Hi,

Loves your picture very much, could you please advice how to make the picture so even and flat?
Do you outline the picture with melted choc first then fill in the rest with tinted white choc? TIA

Hi Karen,

I'll outline the picture with melted chocolate first then fill in the rest with difference coloured chocolate.
