A woman has asked me to make NFSC and place edible images on top of the sugar cookie icing recipe. I have never done this, is it even possible? If it is do I place the image on the wet cookie or when does it get placed? I hope someone can help me with this one! Thanks

sure it can be done!

When I have used edible images on cookies I've covered them with Royal after they cool, let the royal harden, then put the images on using just a little bit of corn syrup around the edges as glue.

edited to add - the wine bottle cookies in my photos have edible images on them.

I have also done the edible image on cookies. I used fondant. Put the fondant on the cookie when I took them out of the oven so the fondant adheres to the cookie but you can also do it when cool by using water or light corn syrup. Then I added the edible image with light corn syrup and placed them face down on parchment paper overnight and they were perfect. HTH.

Hi:
You just use any type of frosting which is what adheres the image to the cookie. If you use royal icing, make it thin, paint it on the cookie and then immediately put the image on.
Enjoy!

The icing recipe I use dries hard and it has shiny look when dry, but it is not royal icing. It has milk, p.sugar, corn syrup, and flavoring in it. Should I apply the image when it is wet or wait til it sets? Thank you so much you are all so helpful, I would really like to take this job, but dont want to mess it up.

You should apply the image when your icing sets. The moisture of the icing makes the image immovable and it will take longer for the icing to dry.

my experience with the images it that they are a bit heavy, so I would certainly let your base layer of icing set before putting it on. otherwise, I would worry about it sinking or moving as the icing underneath dries.

And you something like vodka of tequila to apply the image because it's evaporate quickly.
