I have a cake that is due tomorrow night, and it is a simple BC, but the person wants a picture of the person on the cake. It didn't sound that bad when I was agreed to it but the more I look at the picture (LIfe like) the more I am not sure how to do it or to get statrted. I do alot of BCT but they are mostly in charater type pictures not real people. I am comfortable in my art working but not sure how to get it started exspecially on BC seeing I do not have a photo imager and I think it would be very hard in a BCT! Does anyone have any suggestions that I could try? Thanks for your help.
If they want a picture of the person then it sounds like they thought you had an edible image printer. If I were you, I'd go find a grocery store either tonight or first thing tomorrow am that can print the photo for you on edible paper real quick, otherwise you may have a disappointed customer....best of luck.
I agree with kitagirl, you need to find someone with an edible image printer.
Most Walmarts will do an edible image for you unless it is a something they could get into trouble for copyright infringement (done by a professional photographer or a photo of someone famous). They are not really all that expensive either (I think ours is around $6.00)
I agree, take it to a grocery store and get an edible image, i'm sure that is the result the customer was looking for. Good luck in whatever you decide to do!
ITA with everyone else. I've done that before, took the picture to Wal-Mart and had them print an edible image for me. I would call first and make sure they will do it though. We have several Wal-Marts in my city but only one of them would do it for me. It was $5.00 for the image. I brought two pieces of cardboard that I lined with wax paper to put the image between so it wouldn't break on the ride home.
