Are you talking about a band CT or the CT's that are done more like color flow?

I want to do something like using color flow.It needs to go on top of the cake.

The transfer won't have to be refrigerated. I would suggest not putting it on until you get there. The reason being b/c it could fall over & break during transport. This happened to me when I pulled out of the driveway w/ my nativity cake. If you can & it's not too much trouble, make an extra just in case. If it's going to be on the top of the cake just attach bamboo skewers, toothpicks, or lollipop sticks to the back w/ a dollop of chocolate & let it harden. HTH.

Take a look at my tiddliwinks & nativity cakes--these have CTs on them. That's what I meant by like colorflow.

Quick tip. Do not leave them in the car even if you just get out to go to the bathroom on your trip. They WILL melt!!! My blue flower was in the back of the car while I was loading my cakes & it melted w/ in 5 min. So, just be careful about that. Thanks for the compliment
