Hi, have you done an edible image and you want know how to put it on the cake?

I have done only one cake with edible image. A great tip that I got from the person I bought the edible images from is to rub a tiny bit of shortening on the surface where image goes. I ran throught a small palatte knife under it to loosen it up can then using my big palette and my hands, I transfered it onto the cake. Since there's shortening on the surface, you can move it around without detroying it.

Not sure if this is what you're asking...I HAVE cut out edible images and "glued them onto fondant -covered cookies...I diluted plain piping gel with water,painted it onto the back of the image and then stuck them on..worked really well and dried and didn't move/smear...I just noticed that if you drop water onto an edible image "melts" be careful with that aspect..
