What medium are you using? Buttercream, fondant, what? Because if you're using fondant, you could paint them on with a brush. Alternately, you could use fondant as accents and lay a lighter piece on a darker, then attach the whole spot to the cake--you can even do that on buttercream.

I was thinking of using fondant and then adding a print, I have the front portion of the Standup lion cub pan was going to lay it on top a a square cake. Using leaves for a jungle type backdrop the leaves will be butter cream the only part fondant would be the lion cub .
thanks

By all means, then, paint the print on with food coloring, or with petal or luster dust mixed with alcohol. It works beautifully. You can even use airbrush colors to paint with, if you don't have an airbrush.

there is an edible image with leopard print you can order from just about anywhere. I've never used it but have some on order in a different print. Type in edible image and see what you find.

It could be achieved with buttercream and brush embroidery too.

if your using b/c yo can do what I did...i wanted to do a zebra print cake, but I dont work in fondant...I have a hard time with it. We fight.

so I did mine first I did my color base on the cake in b/c and then I got a plain white computer paper and an exacto knife and I cut zebra stripes on the paper...kind of like making a stencil.

Then I held it up to the cake and I airbrushed it onto the cake. My end result was my Tinkerbell cake in my photos.

good luck
