Press down gently to make sure everything is stuck well and fold over the extra tape on the ends to make "handles". Pick up the whole thing and flip it over. Smooth the tape on the back to assure everything is secure and then press your word(s) onto the cake. You can even use this method on the sides of a round cake.
Necessity is the mother of invention, as they say.
Awesome idea!!! Thanks...will try that on tomorrows cake
