I have a cake in neon green buttercream and I need to put a saying on the cake, I was planning on using an edible image. Will the green eventually come thru the image so it looks like black writing on the green cake. That is what I am trying to achieve. Any suggestions? Help. Thanks in advance!

I am pretty sure that the answer to your question is "no" and I don't have any other suggestions. I wonder if wafer/rice paper would disintegrate. Anyone know?

I did this once with a edible image of a photo on a pink cake & it made the photo look funny. It was a weird color. Now I only put the images on white. If you try it, let me know if it works for you!

yes it will. put a super thin piece of fondant under your image and that should do it!

I thought she wanted the frosting sheet to disappear into the cake leaving the black writing on the green cake. I have never had one dissolve. I always had some of the white from the frosting sheet left between the image and the cake. If she puts the fondant under it, then it won't dissolve at all will it?

correct; but like you said; it wont dissolve even if put right on BC. I misunderstood. i did not realize she was trying to do that. lol

Do you know of a medium that will completely dissolve? Rice/Wafer or Potato Paper?
