You could try a frozen buttercream transfer. I did that with a KISS (Gene Simmons) cake and it came out pretty good. Otherwise paint it on a fondant covered cake. Use lemon extract instead of vodka or water. It seems to work better. Good luck.

I cant see the picture, but I usualllypaint directly on the cake...I always use vodka it dries really fast. Water stays sticky forever
Hope this helps

i was thinking of using a jonas brothers face template, and paint it directly on the paper (on the template) and then, as fast as i can, transfer it on the cake, just to have an idea, and then make the details by hand on the cake......What do you think?

Also i was thinking of puting the template on the cake, and mark the faces with a tool on the fondat, just to make the shape........

...I dont know........

Neat cake. I would make templates of faces, put small toothpick holes or gently draw with food coloring pen the outlines on the cake, then paint in. I used to use Vodka for thinning, but believe it or not, I live in what they call a dry county and Vodka is technically illegal and hard to find, so I use lemon extract. Works great.

if you're good at drawing then do it directly on a fondant covered cake using food colouring and alcohol.
