I was poking around youtube and looking at cake vids and found this. A woman puts a paper pictue on a cake as an outline and then puts icing on the cake then uses candy to outline it. Heres the vid, just thought I would ask opinions on this one.

Very clever technique. with a careful icing job and piping the interior, it would look fabulous.

OMG--so labor instensive when you think how easy it would be to do this by just piping in the details with thinned buttercream, royal, or piping gel, or even doing a buttercream transfer.

I'm not trying to diminish her ingenuity--not at all--but there are easier ways.

My thoughts exactly. My first reaction was do a buttercream transfer. I am by no means good at cake decorating, but it seems a different way would be easier.

I've also seen some cakes here done with royal icing transfers and they look even neater than buttercream transfers.
Not sure what is really easier, I'd need to try it out.
