I am trying to figure out how to do cartoon images easily onto square cakes. I have a dora cake and a hulk cake due next week that I need to do. What techniques and tricks do you all use?
Thanks a latte!

I didn't have much luck with the FBCT. Prob need more practice! icon_biggrin.gif I like the look of fondant cut outs. It can be time consuming and simple designs work better. Basically it's the same technique work your way from the back to the front. I do mine on parchment and then slide it on the the finished cake.

Your Dora is incredible Kaat! I just tried a fbct last month and it was surprisingly easy but I really like the look of the fondant cutouts better! Very nice!

Thank you everyone for the great comments on Dora. I'm going to try (soon) to post pics on this technique!
