I have an idea, wondering if anyone has ever tried it. I have a Buffalo Bills (football team) logo cake I'm doing. I'm thinking of doing it as a FBCT as it is a really simple design and I want it to look clean and sharp.

I thought to add shine I could paint piping gel over the finished FBCT after I put it on the cake but before it thaws (so I won't muss the frosting).

Anyone ever done this or similar? Problems? Thoughts? Thanks!

I can put pipping gel on a cake covered in buttercream, so doing it on the FBCT shouldn't be a problem. But the transfer will thaw really fast (as in less than a minute) so I'm not sure you will be able to do it before it thaws. I'd let it crust over first then paint it on with a light touch.

Why not pipe up a small transfer and try it out?
