I've never worked with edible images (I'm still new and learning). Can it be put on fondant? Any and all tips are greatly appreciated! TIA

Yes they can be put on fondant, gumpaste, and buttercream.

Here is a cake I did that I put them on fondant.

Here is one where the pictures were put on Gumpaste a couple of weeks in advance and I let the gumpaste (with the picture) dry so I could stand it up on the cake.

I LIGHTLY mist the fondant before placing the image on the cake if it has gotten a little dry (which on the betty boop one it did because I covered all of the tiers first then did all of the photos)

For the gumpaste I rolled it out to the thickness I wanted and added the photos while it was still fresh and it had not gotten a skin on it yet.
