Making and Using Templates
Templates are a useful way of transferring a design from a book or drawing onto the surface of the cake.
Place tracing or waxed paper over the design to be copied and, using a sharp pencil, outline it neatly. If tracing a name, first draw a straight line on the paper with a ruler so that all the letters are even.
Turn the tracing right side up and outline again onto the cake. Pricking the design through the paper straight onto the cake with a pin. This can be done directly onto the fondant or a non decorated cake. Then decorate.
