I need to make a cake for a client in the justice league theme. I am making the logos to go on the front of the cake and buildings to stand at the back of the cake (it a slab cake). I am a little stumped as to the top of the cake. I attempted a color flow transfer and did not work out for me. So I cut out a batman out of gumpaste and then painted the details on the piece of gumpaste with edible paint. Now I think it is not going to fill the space so I am thinking of doing a superman. Is there an easier way to transfer the image onto the gumpaste so I can get the details properly. I am not an artist and it is very hard for me to draw freehand.
Any ideas would be much appreciated.

I remember reading someone's blog who had a projector that projected images onto royal icing on cookies. I found a link to a similar site to shown but it means getting a Kopykake projector. If it's something you think you'd use a lot it would make sense... not for a single use though.

Place your printed image over the fondant. Lightly trace the image to get a minimal indentation in the fondant. When your done tracing, remove the image and use the impression you created to paint by.
