You can put them on a round cake but you have to make them to fit the side of the cake. If you make your plaque using the side of the cake pan as your guide it will work. Have you thought of using fondant for the plaque it might be easier. The plaques will last a long time off the cake but if you put them on buttercream it will start to melt the royal icing.

It works with fondant. I use some drops of royal icing to attach the decorations to the cake. I
agree with cashley & make sure your plaque fits the side of the cake. I would also recommend make a few extra plagues: they are very tender.
