want to make a starbucks themed cake for my daughters birthday. i don't have access to edible images. would like to make a "label" for the cup, thought about making a chocolate transfer but don't know how to "round it" to fit around the cup. can anyone help me figure this out? thank you

LOL! I have made 2 Starbucks cakes! I cheated on the label! lol I cut the label out off of a clean cup and put it on the cake (its already rounded!), adhered with icing. One cake was for my daughter, the other was for a friend's son, so it really didn't matter. lol

Mine was definitely not perfect, but I printed the label, then cut out a template. I used an exacto to cut out as much as i could, then drew in the rest with an edible marker. There's a pic on my profile.

If you're doing a chocolate transfer then you can tape wax paper to a cup and then after it sets up it will retain the shape. I have used the tiara tutorial with chocolate and it comes out great.
