The cairo_get_target function should always "work". It's possible that
using it with gdk_cairo_create might not do what you want, since GTK+
creates transient cairo surfaces for double-buffering, and that's the
surface that will be returned by cairo_get_target after

But as long as you understand the implications of that, then you
should be fine.

If I missed the intent of the question, feel free to try again with
more detail.
