I just finished this cake today. I tried a new technique that I not done before. Frozen buttercream transfer is a method of transferring your art to your frosted cake. You are making a buttercream "plaque" to apply to your cake. It is similar to the more familiar method of transferring a design to a frosted cake with gel on waxed paper, and filling in the design with a star tip. It is also comparable to run-in sugar design work, and it will make a beautiful reproduction of your art in buttercream on small as well as very large cakes.
I think if I had more practice with it that it would be much better. My friend Kathy Kmonk of both Facebook and an online community; Cakes We Bake did a video: http://www.cakeswebake.com/video/fbct-how-to-do-a-frozen?xg_source=activity I hope you enjoy it like I have!
