I read the tutorial of FBCT and understand the procedure. But I saw some cakes with it, and would like to my image NOT to sticking out from the frosting base. Would that work if I left unfrosted space on cake, put the FBCT on it and smooth it later with paper towel? Will I destroy the image this way? I am not confortable to do the FBCT of all the top of the cake.
Thank you for your help.

I did my first FBCT not long ago and I had the same issue with the transfer being higher than the rest of the cake. I think that (based on my 1 experience so don't quote me or anything yet!) you could do a crumb coat on the cake, then do the FBCT over that and when you frost even it up that way. OR the other thing is how thick your transfer is...if its pretty thick then it will of course stick up (mine was.)
I would think you would still be okay if you just put the paper towel over the transfer and didn't rub but more pressed to get it down into the icing.

Best of luck!
