I need to make a UFC octagon cake, it'll be rather small like 6-7 inches. I can pipe the UFC logo but want I put these on there too. I am doing my entire cake in crusting cream cheese frosting (red velvet) and I tried making FBCT and I just couldn't get it small enough. I'm pretty new to cake decorating. How can I get these two pictures on my cake?! I have no access to an edible printer (sure wish I had one)! Any suggestions would be great!

AI havedone it two ways one is a gel transfer where you trace with pencil on to wax paper turn it over then trace with piping gel and them transfer to cake brushing over the lines with a small brush. This is good but I have a hard time getting crisp lines with it. I feel like the FBCT would work the best. Just make sure to do the reverse picture or it will be backwards since you have words.

ASorry I read better. Could you put the picture in a word doc and size it smaller to the size you need? I have done that several times.

I did that, I have it the size I need but can't do the fbct ...it's just too small, I guess I don't have a small enough tip :/
