I have an image I want to print and put on fondant for a cake. It is a black outline like a coloring page.

My question is, once I put it on the fondant and let it dry can I use food safe marker to color it in or should I use buttercream and a really fine tip?

Has anyone tried anything like this?

TIA! icon_smile.gif

I'm sorry I can't answer your question exactly, but if the answer ends up being "no", I have a possible alternate idea for you. Instead of using edible paper, do a reverse print of your image on your computer. Depending on the size of the image just put a piece of waxed paper over the image and pipe the outline in piping gel. Carefully lift your waxed paper, turn it onto your cake and you will have the outline on your cake. then you can either follow the outline in black, if you want the black to show, or just color it in like you want to do. I would think that using this method you could use any medium to color it in, buttercream, royal, color markers or even paint it. I hope this helps.
