has anyone printed edible images to apply to a fonadant covered cake. I'm making a cake for my daugher's 30 birthday, it will have all of her favorite things, one of them being Tiffany. I've made a Tiffany gift box and braclet out of sugarpaste but want to add the Tiffany logo to the top of the box. The box of course is the teal blue and the logo will be printed in black but it prints on white icing sheets. I haven't done much with edible images so how do you put the image on the icing sheet on the fondant without seeing a white back ground. Would it be better to print it on rice paper or would that even work?? Would appreciate any suggestions, tips or links anyone has for applying edible images.

Thanks

Debbie

Man oh Man.....where was this advice 2 yrs. ago when I needed it!!! Of course, this site didn't exsist then. I had a edible image to put on fondant, and all the googling didn't help. I couldn't seem to find a way to "secure" it, when all along, I had piping gel on hand that would have done the trick.. Live & Learn!!!

Yes, the white would still show on the colored fondant;0). It might fade a little, but you would still see the white outline somewhat. I would take a very sharp , detailed exacto knife and cut as close to the lettering as possible. I do it all the time. It is a teatis thing, but it would look better. I hope this helps. Good luck. If you need any question answered just personel email me at RLMENZ@yahoo.com

Hi Liz,
Thanks for the info. I bought my icing sheets from PhotoFrost. I'm still alittle confused with it though, so since the logo is printing on the white icing sheet and I don't want to cut all around the letters since the logo is small, What I'm asking is, will you always see the white background behind the logo if you are putting it on colored fondant. If it's white on white it will blend right, but if it's going on color do you know of a way that you wouldn't see the white and it would just be the black letters? Does that make sense what I'm asking, so hard to explain without showing. LOL. I do appreciate you response.

I am a PhotoFrost rep. I have used the system way before I began reprensting PhotoFrost. You take a little thinned down piping gel with water and a very nice soft artist brush and lightly brush it on the fondant area where you wish to lay the logo printed edible images on. Make sure you have a few copies, in case. When you get ready to lay on after applying the piping gel. , be ready. You won't get a second chance on placing it. It will adhere quickly. Its easy to work with, just be patience and plan it out. Make sure the logo edible image is laying on a white background or place it on a pre-colored fondant or gumpaste plaque of the color you wish it to be, so you don't change the coloring or have bleed thru to ruin your logo. Hope this helps. Any more question on this subject, just let me know, always to glad to help.

It looks like a really simple logo - could you not free-hand it using black food coloring mixed with Vodka and "painting" it on? Also - you could make the background of the lettering Tiffany blue when you print it and then it would blend better. Do you have your own printer? Or are you planning to have it printed elsewhere? I know Wal-Mart will make edible copies, but not for something copyrighted (as the T & Co. logo would be). Good luck!
