How long can an edible image be on a cake? I wasn't sure if it would eventually start absorbing into the buttercream? This will be my first time using it and I don't want to ruin it before they cut it.

Don't know about buttercream, be interested to find out myself. On fondant, it was definitely fine for a couple days (during the time it was being eaten) - didn't melt at all as long as it was kept dry on top of the image. I will be watching the tread.

I made a cake for my grand-son with an edible image the day before his party. My daughter kept the leftover cake in the fridge for several days after, and the image still looked perfect, and it was on buttercream.

I'm sure there's others on here with more knowledge, but that was my experience.

It will be fine for as long as the cake is fresh enough to eat. icon_smile.gif
