It all depends on how you want it to be on there. You can prop it up on sugar cubes or a mound of BC. You can also attach it to a stick with RI and stick that in the cake. Or, you can put it on flat with BC as your glue.

Thanks so much for your reply, I'm confused because I thought I read somewhere that buttercream caused the color flow images to break down. Did I misunderstand? I plan to put the images flat - directly onto the cake on top of the buttercream. Thanks so much for any and all suggestions, replies, etc.

The moisture from the buttercream can soften it, but it won't turn into mush. If you are concearned then must apply as close to serving time as possible. You really shouldn't have a problem though.
