there was a thread earlier this week where someone was talking about something similar... i haven't tried this before, but i believe they said to put the transfer on the side and rub your hand on it to warm it up and make it a little more pliable and then gently form it to the shape of the cake.
if you figure this out, let us know! i have been wondering about it myself!
thanks...anyone else? I guess that I'll have to do a practice cake
good news...the FBCT on the side of a cake works just fine
bad news...doing a FBCT without an outline is not so pretty
