Has anyone ever tried to place a FBCT on a fondant covered cake? Is it possible? I would like to try it. Also, when I made a previous FBCT I used a store bought choc. frosting for the outline. Problem was that it didn't seem to freeze. It wouldn't peel off the waxpaper. The buttercream came off but not the outline.

I've never done an FBCT on fondat, but I have seen it done. So yes, it can be done. I always outline my FBCTs with the same buttercream that I use for the rest of the transfer - just coloured black, or whatever colour I want it to be. When I do these, I make them on a piece of plexiglass and instead of using waxed paper, I use acetate film (what teachers use on overhead projectors - that clear paper sized film) that I buy at an office supply store. That peels off really nicely, but I don't know about the store-bought icing.
