I'm making a hockey puck cake this weekend with an edible image of the team's logo on top. I just realized that the image is surrounded by a white circle. Perfect for a white cake, but obviously I need to use black icing!

Can I cut around the logo with an X-acto knife without messing it up? I only have one image and don't have time to order a new one if I mess the first one up.

Has anyone ever done this before?

I have cut an edible image sheet before .... trimmed the edges so I wouldn't have any overhang. I'd think if you were very careful, it would work out ok. Bear in mind that I only trimmed the edges of the sheet, so if anyone else has a different experience, I hope they pop in here and share, too.

I've cut them with scissors.

Thanks everyone! What's the best thing to cut them with...scissors or Xacto knife?

I have cut them with scissors and a very sharp knife. Go slowly. Sometimes the edges bind to the paper backing after they have been cut. Then you have to just work them back and forth on the edge of a surface to get them to release.

I just use scissors and it works fine.
Happy Caking!
