Not sure if this would work or not, but just an idea.....I would make a sketch on a piece of parchment paper that is the same size of area you need to cover on your cake. Draw the six pack however you want it. Once finished, place the parchment paper on top of your cake (sketch side facing up). Trace over your drawing with a dull or ball shaped flower tool to make a VERY light impression of the six pack underneath on the fondant. You do not want to use anything sharp or pointed, as it may poke a hole in your fondant. Take the paper off & you can then go over the impression directly with the tool to make it more distinguished. Just make sure to always use light pressure so that you do not poke a hole in your fondant!

you could also shape your bc underneath, just be careful when smoothing your fondant.
or you could lie some fondant shapes, like a wee rectangle for each bit, on the bc, and then it would be covered with the top layer of fondant.
