I wanted to put an edible image on a fondant covered giant sugar cookie.. Anyone tried this? The cookie would be about the size of the entire pan.
Thoughts? Do you think it would work okay?

I have made many, many cookies that size but never put fondant on any of them. I don't see any problems doing so, it's just when I was making them fondant wasn't widely used yet icon_smile.gif Putting an EI on a fondant 'plaque' is certainly possible. Just be sure of your placing because once placed =even a bit of it =, you cannot move it. - maybe place it before you cut the fondant to shape.

Yes, you can put an image on fondant. You can dampen the fondant with water, use piping gel or vodka or even crisco to adhere the image. Just be sure that the image does not get wet on the top where the ink is and be sure that you apply the image center first smoothing it out as you go. This way you get all the airbubbles out.

Could I put the edible image directly onto the cookie and adhere with piping gel? ??Are there other options?I have some Sugarshack's BC- would that work?
I'm out of fondant now and don't feel like making anymore or buying it....
TIA!

The BC will work. You can adhere it straight to the cookie with piping gel...BUT! the image will show all the bumps and ridges of the cookie, so it is best to put it on the BC

My pleasure. Be sure that the BC is smooth and damp before applying
