Can I put an edible image on fondant? If so The image will be on a draped piece of fondant, will that be all right? What I mean is the image will not be on a flat surface it might be curved. Sorry fo the bad questions I am having trouble trying to explain myself.

thank you

It will be fine as long as you shape your fondant while the EI is still pliable. If you wait too long, the image may crack when you curve your fondant.

I make bow loops with EI covered fondant, so yes, you can definitely curl or curve it.

Use crisco to apply the image, it allows the image to slide a bit and makes it easier to maniuplate.

Crisco, eh? How interesting! I'm definitely going to experiment with that. Can't wait to see how the image behaves. Thanks for the tip!

It actually allows it to slide a bit before you get it in to place and since you will be manipulating this, it is key to be able to do that
