A friend wants me to do a groom's cake for her...I'm a in VERY new. For now, I'm just having fun but I want to do this for her. She wants this on the top:

I posted before...but I think it was on another site, about how best do this? Someone mentioned frozen BC transfer...I'm going to make an attempt at it this weekend. Then I thought, maybe a royal icing type of transfer?? That may look pretty smooth as well. (oh yeah, I want this to be smooth on the top.)

I haven't worked with royal icing yet. Could that work? If so, any tips please? How long does it take to dry (I know I'd need to outline first before doing the fill in areas) and how do you keep the other RI in the batch from drying in the bowl, do you cover it, like ganache, paper towel flat on top?

If you want flat flat then I would go FBCT.

With Royal icing or the color flow techinque the piped lines and the filled in areas are not always flush.
