I have to make a Hockey Puck cake similar to the one morrisaz2004 made. I had a local bakery print out the league logo for me. My plan is to attach it to a white gumpaste circle and then use royal icing to attach to my fondant covered puck.

How do I get it to stick to the gumpaste? I was afraid to mist the gumpaste an lay it dow in case the ink runs but I don't know if that would really happen??? I have never used an edible image before.

Please help any advide would be much appreciated!

Thank you!

I use a damp paper towel & wipe it over the fondant/gim paste then apply

I've only used them one time and I lightly brushed the back with water in order to get it to stick to fondant.

Is your image the rice paper kind or frosting sheet? I once had a rice paper one dissolve when i got the surface too wet. I mix 1 teaspoon of corn syrup with 2 or 3 drops of water then brush a very light but even amount onto the service then i start by sticking the center of the image on and smoothing outwards.

Its not as thin as rice paper but thicker than cardstock. Does that mean it's a frosting sheet?

Yeah its probably a frosting sheet. The rice paper ones are kinda see though when held up to light. I prefer frosting sheets i think they are less likely to dissolve>

You just need to moisten the gum paste. You can use water or corn syrup. I would only moisten the back of the icign sheet if you are using the Premium Icing Sheets, but other brands you it may melt the icing sheet too fast or cause it to run.
