I've done this on buttercrm but not to fondant... do i attach the ei with piping gel or buttercream? I'm not sure how to do it. I'm scared either one of those would make the picture bubble and look uneven. Help! any suggestiong would get greatly appreciated!

I have attached ei's to fondant with piping gel, Very very thin layer. If your ei is very light or mostly white and your fondant is darker just be careful so the colors dont show through. I have actually attached it to a piece of white fondant or gumpaste then attached it to the darker fondant.

I attach them with a very small amount of water. I dampen a paint brush and then brush it over the fondant and attach the EI. Works great for me.

Thankyou! I ended up using a thin layer of btc icing, but next time i think i will try the water or put it on piece of gumpaste.
