I am making a graduation cake for my nephew. I made a few pictures on edible paper with edible markers to put on the "locker" cake to look like stickers. I was going to put them on fondant and then put them on the cake but I know edible paper breaks down with moisture. How would I stick it to the fondant?? Should I just put it right on the buttercream or would that break it down too??

Thanks for any help.

I would use piping jel to stick it to the fondant

You could try putting the edible paper on a separate piece of fondant and cut out around each "sticker" image. Then place on the cake with a little gel. That would make each one stand out a little and not go flush with the cake and you wouldn't have to worry about the edible paper breaking down - it will only melt into the separate piece of fondant and not the cake.
