I would like to outline the continent of Africa on a cake. I doubt my free hand abilities, and was wondering if anyone can tell me how to get a outline on white buttercream then I can use RI to make the image more accurate? Thank you in advance for your help icon_biggrin.gif

Print out the image you want in the size. Place on something soft and punch through outline with a pin. This causes bumps on the back of the paper. Lay your paper on your cake and gently rub the image. You will have marks where to outline.
