I've gotten very into making decorated cookies, and have pretty much changed everything I do to just cookies. I find that it's what I'm better at, and what people that buy from me love more. I keep seeing edible images on cookies though, such as company logos. How is that done? When do you place the image? I was thinking about it and wouldn't the wet RI bleed through? I can do most logos with just RI, but I'd really like to try the edible images. Any help or advice is much appreciated. =]

No one? I've seen so many beautiful cookies with images, surely someone out there has a little advice they'd be willing to share.

I've only done it a few times and no, the RI doesn't bleed through, not the ones that I have done. The EI are thicker than you might think. I cut mine with a pair of scissors and place them on the cookie.

I've used purchased ones(Pfeil&Holing) for Christmas.

I put them on when my flooding was wet. Worked great and didn't bleed.
You can either pipe a border around to cover the edge or I just used sprinkles.

Photos are in my gallery if you want to take it look.

I have used edible images quite a few times, and it is very easy. In fact, it's a lot easier that decorating with royal...so I'm thrilled when someone asks me to do them! lol I use frosting sheets, and they are fairly thick. I place the edible image directly onto the cooled cookie, and then pipe some kind of border around the edge, or use sprinkles to make a border. I adhere the edible image to the cookie with a little bit of corn syrup brushed directly onto the cookie. I've attached a photo of a bouquet I recently made with edible image cookies.

Very cute Joanne! Your bouquet gave me some ideas for a customer who requested ideas for an employee going off to college.

How do you put the sprinkles on for the border? Corn syrup?

I put the sprinkles/nonpareils on the border using piping gel! I was lucky to take a cookie class from Michelle Bommarito this past May, and she used this method, and showed us how to do it. It was so easy, we all said, "Why didn't I think of that!" After the royal has dried, just brush the edges with piping gel (available at cake decorating stores in a tub) and sprinkle away!
