I have a graduation cake to make and the client would like cheetah prints on the cake and would prefer buttercream verses fondant.  I've never done the print but I have an idea on how to.  How do you apply it to buttercream.  Would someone please give me direction?  After applying the prints will it run because of the oil in the buttercream?

You can ice the cake....pop it in the fridge overnight to set firm....use a stencil......Evil cake Genius has a beautiful leopard print stencil with a video.....that's what I'd do :)

You could also hand paint the spots...there are vids for that as well :)

I did a tiger cake similar to this. Good tutorial on the process of painting buttercream on buttercream.  

You can switch the colors and do a cheetah print instead of tiger.

Thank you for your responding quickly and I will look at the video.  I will look at Evil cake Genius to see the stencils.  If you guys think of anything else please let me know.  Blessings to you.
