post #1 of 4 my BIL asked me to make him a birthday cake...with the Penn State lion on it.

Here is my question...if I make an 8" round cake, would it look better with a color flow plaque standing up, and room for his name/candles


should I try a buttercream transfer?

The lion isn't terribly complicated, but I have only done 1 color flow piece, in the Wilton 2 class...and never tried the buttercream thing. FBCT? I don't even know what that means! EEEK!

Thanks in advance ya'll!

Aaaaah! Thanks! I didn't know what the "F" stood for.

I am pretty sure I am going to do the colorflow plaque. I will save the transfer for something more complex and/or colorful.

Thanks again!!!
