Supplies for shamrock royal icing transfers:

Flat work surface- I use a glass cutting board
Wax Paper
Green Icing
Shamrock Transfers

Shamrock Royal Icing Transfers thebearfootbaker.comThe first thing you need to do is print off your template. I used a shamrock I found on a free clip art site. Then I made it different sizes.

Next, tape your clip art paper to a flat surface like a cutting board. It is the perfect size and it was a gift so it makes me happy. I was a high school secretary and the basketball coach gave one to all the secretaries in the office. He was sweet like that and did nice stuff for us all the time! Thanks coach!

Shamrock Royal Icing Transfers thebearfootbaker.comOnce your template is taped down, you need to cover it with wax paper. It is important that you cover and tape it nice and tight so you don’t have wrinkles. We don’t want wrinkles on our face or on our RI transfers. So you and the tape join the Wrinkle Revolution! Get rid of the wrinkles!

Shamrock Royal Icing Transfers thebearfootbaker.comAre you ready to have some fun? This is my favorite part! Gently remove the tape from the wax paper. Then, carefully peal off the shamrock royal icing transfers one at a time.

Shamrock Royal Icing Transfers thebearfootbaker.comI hate to tell you this but not all of the shamrocks will survive. Some of them will break so that is why you need to make extras.  Don’t cry over spilt milk or broken shamrocks. I mean it. I think it is against the law or something.
