Hi, I cant seem to get to the article with the edible images hence i had to post these questions:

a) I;ve got the edible images from a store n its on rice paper. I need to attach it to a cake which i will cover with fondant.

b) the image is not too bright. Is there anything i can apply to the image (like piping gel) to make it brighter or will tht affect the rice paper.

Thanx in advance

To my knowledge, there is nothing you can do to make it brighter... but I haven't used rice paper, just the frosting sheets...

The only medium they had in the store was rice paper. So i really didnt have a choice with tht. Can it be used directly on Buttercream and fondant?

Yes, but it doesn't melt like the frosting sheets do. I'm pretty sure you peel it off before you serve it...

I don't know... I think it would make it darker because of the dark color... I assume if it was white chocolate ganache it would be fine... I'm probably the wrong person to ask on that one icon_biggrin.gif

I probably wouldn't put it directly onto the ganache. Could you do an edible image plaque - putting it on the fondant or gumpaste (I would use white)? That way you would be able to keep whatever color is on the image viewable?
