Personally I would do it NON-edible.
print out on paper and enclose in press-N-seal plastic wrap. Don't have PNS? then use regular plastic cling wrap.

Use the lightbox method. I explain it here: http://cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-641963-.html

Can you find a local bakery or grocery store that will print the edible image up for you? You can always add the expense to the customer's invoice.

It's hard to freehand in a little spot like that, so what about freehanding on a little rectangle of fondant that you can just attach when you are done? This way you can easily re-do it if you need to...

I would do a melted chocolate transfer. Similar to the Frozen buttercream, except you don't freeze it.

Works great!!
