The LV lettering looks too perfect to be just free hand and it doesnt look like it is an edible image cause i dont see any stopping points, unless they have a half sheet edible image machine. Also, how much would you charge per person for this cake? I usually do a per person price plus addition charge for shoes/bows etc... Hope I am not confusing

This lady does amazing work; all of her work is very clean and very well done.

Thanks in advance icon_biggrin.gif

It looks like it's handpainted on. Very time consuming and she's VERY good!

Yes, I was thinking a stencil too. I made a stencil once and it wasa bitchoppy... I couldn't get a clean straight edge icon_sad.gif

But, Thanks a mill icon_biggrin.gif

It might be an edible image.

Looks handpainted to me. You can variations in line thicknesses and whatnot if you look close. Not enough to be anything less than spectacular, but it's most likely handpainted.

Could it be hand drawn with edible marker? That's what it looks like to me.

I too go with hand-painted or edible marker.

I think it's hand painted. Not trying to be picky but isn't the J a little to big and the o a little to small? If that's true I would think hand painted.

Yeah... it's really good, but it's not perfect like if it was machine printed. There are some other flaws in the LV pattern - again only pointing out that I think it was hand painted versus machine printed.
