I"ve purchased one from icingimages.com, it was about $20, but my customer paid for it.

Where I live Sams wouldnt sell them to me!!! I live in Wal-Marts back door!!! I wish mine would sell them!!! I would try like the smaller bakeries in neighboring towns they are more apt to sell to someone thats not competition!!! Good Luck!!!

Maybe one of your local grocery stores may have it for sale? If you ask in the bakery (not at the customer service desk) they might do it if they have it on hand. Different stores have different policies though.

Do you need it for personal use or business use?

You can print out whatever image you want and then take that to the grocery store or wherever... My local stop n shop does them for $6 per sheet.

Last time I needed edible images, I just went to my local grocery store (Giant Supermarket), gave them the pictures and they printed them out on icing sheets for me. $8 a sheet, used small pictures so fit about 7 on a sheet. HTH

Same here--I went to my local Publix. They'll print images for $8 per sheet. They were able to fit four images on one sheet. I don't get requests for edible images very often so when I do this is definitely the way to go.

All grocery stores do not provide coloring or any cropping/enchancement features for edible images. The artwork must be finished before printing.

There may be some private bakeries that can edit art, but grocery store bakeries aren't equipped with the computer and graphic equipment you would need to do that. Though if you find one let me know! thumbs_up.gif

I thought I'd add, for those in the UK, I use Diy.Cakes on eBay uk, for my edible pictures. They charge £3.00 for an A4 sheet - though they've sometimes got deals if you're buying more than one, plus £1.90 postage, but most importantly, they're really helpful and accommodating to requests icon_smile.gif


And in case this sounds like an advert - I'm not involved with them in any business or friendship kind of way icon_wink.gif

Hi there. Just MIST some water over the piece of fondant and put your image on.....It's importatant to just finely mist though - your image will adhese right away so get it on straight! ha,ha......Hope that helps.

I haven't tried it, but I saw you can purchase them on ebay for really cheap.

Walmart will do it for $5 sheet, but you have to find someone nice at the bakery counter as it seems a bit hit and miss depending on who's there.
