Can someone share when I should apply the image to cookies dipped in white chocolate? I'm guessing I shouldn't put it on when it's still really soft. Is there a certain way I can test the chocolate to know when is a good time to apply?

Same thing with rolled buttercream. I intend to put the disk of rolled buttercream right on to the cookies when they come out of the oven and are still warm. Is this when I should apply the image as well or should I wait and use a diluted corn syrup to apply the image? The easier and quicker the better!

Thanks in advance!

I let the cookies cool. I either put some buttercream icing on the cookie or I brush it with clear piping gel them put the fondant/rolled buttercream on it.

When I make chocolate suckers with an edible image, I cut the image the size of the mold, drop it in the mold first and then pour the chocolate in. Since the chocolate is of course warm and melted, I assume that you'd also apply your image to the cookie while the chocolate is warm and wet.

Yes, I also put the rolled buttercream right onto the warm cookie. It adheres to the cookie perfectly.
