I'm planning to have a couple of images made tomorrow, my questions are...

1. If I have multiple images on 1 single sheet, can I cut them out with a blade and attach them to the cake individually? (I'm trying to save some money by having 3-4 smaller pictures combined onto one single sheet)

2. How do I attach them to fondant once they're cutout? water?

Thanks so much in advance!

I've only done 1 edible image before, but, yes, you can cut them. I put mine on buttercream frosting, so I didn't have to do anything to it. It just stuck right to the buttercream. I have read on CC that to attach to fondant, you give it a very light spray of water to help it attach. HTH

yes you can...and I would use sharp gumpaste scissors or a very sharp exacto knife.

and you can attatch with water, vodka, pipping gel

have fun with it

Yes, you can just cut with a really sharp scissors and store what you are not using immediately in a ziploc bag.

I have attached with piping gel to fonadant.
