Air Force Promotion Cake

I made this cake for my husband's promotion. The cake is a yellow cake w/ crusting buttercream. I added vanilla, butter, and almond extracts to the buttercream. I tried a different technique for the frozen buttercream transfer, and loved how it had an "embroidered" look on the stripes. The stripes were freehanded. Getting the frosting "Air Force blue" about made me want to quit, luckily it worked. Constructive critiquing welcome

Very nice. How did you get the texture on the FBCT? Mine was smooth and flat.

I didn't reverse the FBCT onto the cake. I basically designed it how I wanted it (on wax paper) froze it, and then lifted it off and placed the FBCT where I wanted it.
