Alright, I found someone to print off edible images for me - I actually found someone who provided super fast service thru EBAY! The one thing this person is not sure of is the best method for attaching the edible images to fondant. How does everyone out there attach images printed off with a food safe printer to fondant??

I usally brush a little piping gel on the fondant and then place the image over it. Hope this helps.

I use Wiltons clear cake gel works great, put you image in the freeze for a minute then brush on your gel and lay on fondant.

Sometimes I use buttercream to attach my icing images just so I have some flexibility for a while.

I just lay a damp paper towel on the top of the cake prior to putting the image on. If you are putting on the sides of a cake or if you are going to manipulate the picture by bending it, you would want to use crisco as it gives you time to slide it around a bit.
