What kind of chocolate are you using? Sorry, I am having trouble picturing this. Do you have a photo of an example cake you could post?

Yes I would stick the chocolate on before the bc sets. But if you wait you can still stick it on with a dab of bc on the back of the chocolate. I would do it the day before it is due at the earliest. Some say they do cakes a few days in advance. But with the chocolate I wouldn't want it to sit to long.
