I was asked to do a cake with a pic of madonna on it in Buttercream...
I have never done a buttercream transfer... i've only done a picture printed backwards then lined with piping gel - and placed on a cake.. but just logos.

Any ideas!?!

I was thinking of this maybe on the cake.... with a little Madonna figure

I think that's a good idea, but I wouldn't bother with the figure as well as the image.
Or you could do a FBCT like this:
You could just do 1.
They aren't that difficult, as long as your design is simple. You probably want to do a practice one first ( my first was detailed and I'm glad I did a practice) and look up some tips in the forums. Then post (or PM me or other cc'ers) for advice once you've done your first and you know your challenges...Good luck!

You could also do a chocolate transfer, it's the same thing as a buttercream transfer, only with a different medium.

Thanks - I like that image - It looks easy! The transfer looks so scary lol
I have checked out the tutorial quite a few times... I'll have to just give it a try! :S

What is a chocolate transfer? I've googled it but only chocolate transfer sheets come up.

A chocolate transfer is the same thing -- take a picture, reverse it, tape it to a board with acetate over it and do it with chocolate. Do the small pieces first and overlap everything with chocolate as you fill in for stability. I recreated the Team Safari bedroom motif for a friend's baby shower here in chocolate transfers: http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1683887
