How can I add a tattoo on a cake? I don't have an airbrush machine.

I thought and tried using a childrens temporary tattoo on fondant but it doesn't work completely. I thinks its because of the oils.
When appling to skin it needs to be cleaned with alcohol before applying.
I evne tried to clean area with vodka to dry the fondant but it didn't work, only parts of the tattoo stuck.

Maybe I should apply to completely dried fondant?

Any suggesions, comments, ideas?

Paint the tattoo on with gel colors, or let the fondant dry and draw it on with fine-point crayola markers.

I doubt that temporary tatoos are food safe/edible.

I'd try to paint it on using food markers and/or gel-paste colors. If that fails, perhaps you could get it printed out at a grocery store as an edible image.

You might try doing the FBCT They've been talking about on CC.

I think an edible image is your best bet...

I second the edible image idea.

I think edible image would be best, but you can try food coloring markers. I have some from GlobalSugarArts, and they work great.

Thanks everyone.

BlakesCakes -- I don't thinkg that temporary tatoos are food safe/edible either, justs an option and would make sure its not eaten LOL

I thought about the edible images to, unfortunely I don't have a printer and the stores I have inquired at will not print for me unless I buy a cake.

I will try the food colouring markers, I have them.

Thanks again everyone.

Temporary Tatoo...dont do it, not edible. You can laminate it, use the edible markers or look online for an edible image maker. If you let me know where you are from, perhaps I can recommend someone in your area that will print for you.
