1st question: Can you attach an edible image to MMF and if so how do you go about doing so.. i've never used an edible image before and i don't know anything about them

2nd question: if i want my MMF to dry faster should i use gum-tex?? and if so how much gum-tex would i add to one batch?? or can i just add it to the part i want to drive faster...

you can use piping gel to adhere an edible image.

As for gumtex, it can speed drying but it will also be much harder than fondant alone. Typically, 1 tsp gumtex to one pound of fondant.

Yes, gumtex can be kneaded into the fondant. I roll the fondant out some, sprinkle over the gumtex, then roll it up and start kneading. It may need a touch of shortening to remain pliable.

Placing an Edible Image to fondant is simpleicon_smile.gif Just place a slightly damp paper towel on the area you want the Image to cover....don't let any other part of the fondant get wet in any way. Smooth is well w/a dry paper towel or fondant smoother.
