My mother has decided to retire from Law Enforcement after 28 years! So happy for her!

Her department is throwing her a reitrement party at the end of May and since the funds are all from the employees I decided to make the cake so that saves some $$$ for the group.

Of course since it is my mom no ordinary cake will do. icon_biggrin.gif

I would like to have 4-5 small 3.5 x 5 edible images made from photos of her when she started and now as well as her old patrol car, friends, etc. I don't have the equipment to do it myself and none of the local bakeries will do them any more unless you put it on their cake. (YUCK!)

Someone helped me from here about 2-3 years ago with a Gamecock image for my dh's 30th bday. It was PERFECT! I am hoping someone can again.

Please let me know if you can help and about how much it will cost.

THANKS!!! thumbs_up.gif

I can't help you w/ the image, but have you tried Wal-Mart? Or another grocery store bakery?

I did with no luck! They want me to put them on their cake. I want to put them on gumpaste to prop on the cake.

I can call some of the other smaller grocery chains who have bakeries though.

At my local wal mart bakery, they will print them for you for $5.00 per sheet. They can probably arrange them to all fit on one sheet then you can cut them out.

It's worth a call to them if you have one in your area. HTH

If you can't do the grocery store/Walmart thing, how about ordering online? I just did a quick google search and there are a bunch of places that will let you order online and upload the pictures to them....here are just two I found.......

You can try copycake.com. I bought some image paper from them and just printed on my regular printer at home.

Would that not be toxic using the regular ink? Isn't that why they make edible ink??

Wouldn't your regular printer ink be toxic? I think it is.

I'm not dead yet...it's such a small amount it would be no worse than eating a piece of paper you've printed on. I've checked the packaging of the ink and nowhere does it say not to eat it. I'm sure if you sucked down the whole cartridge of ink it would not be good for you. Of course a person could scrape off the image from their piece.

Yeah I was thinking that too...that you're not dead yet lol.

But I was just wondering. I know if we could use regular ink it would save A LOT of money. But I am already in process of getting the edible stuff now.
