Both are great techniques. If you choose to do RI flow make duplicates, they are very fragile.

Color flow needs to be done ahead of time. It needs atleast 48 hours to try, sometimes more depending on where you live and the weather.

Color flow pieces can stand up, where as FBCTS are flat on the cake.

FBCT can be done the day of, so that is the plus for them.

Either can be good, it all depends on the look you are going for and which look you like best.
