I'm making a hockey rink cake for my nephew complete with boards made out of gumpaste. The gumpaste boards will be decorated with edible images. I have to drop the cake off at my sister's house tomorrow before noon (the party is in the evening).

I'm concerned that if I apply the edible images to the gumpaste boards, assemble the cake & drop it off, the edible images will melt in their fridge over the course of the afternoon before the party. The cake will be covered with Swiss buttercream and filled with a whipped cream filling making it very perishable.

What are my options to keep the edible images from melting?

From what I know about edible images they don't melt into fondant or gumpaste but rather sit ontop like paper.They only melt into actual icing....I think it will be fine!!
