Can someone please point me in the direction for instructions/advice on how to do the fondant pictures that are like putting a puzzle together?

I'm not sure I know what you mean...can you attach a link or photo that we could go look at?

It looks like these are cut out from templates, then overlaid onto the cake...if you could look for line drawings on the internet, then use them as patterns to cut out your fondant from, it should work..the cake you've linked to is built up with different template...you just need a sharp knife and a steady hand! Good luck

Or take a picture (like from a coloring book) cut out on lines to use as a template. Then put them on fondant and cut out with an exacto knife. Then put pieces as they fit together on picture.

Can you do it with just plain fondant without anything else mixed with it? And how far in advance can you do them or do you have to do them and put them right on the cake?

just plain fondant....start with the piece in the back cut it our first, then just go with the next piece and the next until you get to the front. I did mine like this at first. now i do a lot more painted pieces or 3-d pieces. Clip art from the computer works and just enlarge the artwork or coloring books. I have several in my photos. have fun.

Either way would be fine. You can cover them up with saran wrap if making in advance.
