You could treat it as another layer and just ice it all together but what i did is I covered the cross in fondant to make it stand out a bit and then I out a border around the bottom of it to make it easier to see the shape of the cross.
Hope that helps

I also did the same cake, did BC on the sheet cake and fondant with flowers on the cross, Here is the pic, sorry it is upside down!!! I did do each cake individually and then carefully placed the cross on the sheet cake ( and then fixed the finger marks with VIVA!) and then piped the border.

I've got an order for a baptismal cake I'd like to do this way. How do you go about the carving of the cross cake to get the dimensions to it. thanks in advance.
