That is so cute! The only thing that I can think is that they taped the image under a piece of glass and then put a light under the glass. The fondant is already rolled out on top of the glass and then they probably hand cut the image. Hope this helps.

Why couldn't you just make the image a Royal Icing Transfer, Color-Flow Transfer, or a Frozen Buttercream Transfer.

What I will do is print out a picture that is the size I want it to be. Then cut out each "shape" or element of the picture. In this case, her hat, her hair, her face, her neck, her shirt, pants, shoes, etc. would all be separate cut pieces of paper, because they are all different colors. I use 50/50 mixture of fondant/gumpaste or tylose powder. Roll it out thin, let it sit for a few minutes. Put the individual piece of paper on top of the fondant and trace around it.

I do this because I do not have a lightbox.

that would look awesome done in chocolate...white candy melts tinted the correct colors.

can you use gel paste colors with chocolate? or do you need candy dye?

it would look beautiful.
