That's what I've done each time I've done it. I just use my printed image cut it out like a puzzle, cut out the pieces then put them back together. Once it was all done, I went back and added detail.

its a 2D image. Personally, I think its easier than a 3D ( but thats just IMHO) you roll the fondant into the shape you want, or roll it and trace the image and cut with something similar to an exacto knife and put the pieces next to each other to form what you want. You can also overlap and flatten a little.

As the others suggested...print the image then cut into pieces like a puzzle then roll out your fondant and cut (I use and exacto knife). The cinderella and Gators cake were done with this technique.

I usually place it on top and cut it out. As for cutting, exacto is best for details, pizza cutter for larger things.
