have you tried any of your local cake supply stores. We have a cake castle that does it. But the photo has to b your own photo you took due to Copy Right issues. hope that helps.

If you are using butter creme you can put right on top I use a small offset to smooth out any air bubbles behind the photo. If you use fondant you need to lightly wet the fondant with a brush you want no puddles. Then lay it on and smooth with offset lightly or fingers.


Main thing never get your image wet it will blend the colors or even melt.

When placing the image on the cake, slightly flex it in half. this helps you to find the center point. begin to lay the image down smoothing the image from the center out to remove any air bubbles.
Your icing must be moist in order for the image to adhere to the cake. If you have crusted buttercream or fondant you can acheive this by spraying a mist of water down on to the cake or you can lay a damp paper towel on the cake and removing it prior to the placing the image on the cake.
It is very important in humid weather to get the bubbles smoothed out.

Have you tried the Walmart or a grocery store bakery? They might do it for you.
