I'm seeing cakes where it looks like the figures are printed and standing on top of the cake or against the side.  Can anyone tell me how this done?  Is it rice paper prints?  How is it backed to be stiff and stand up?

Print the figures on an edible icing sheet....cut out and lay on a piece of thin fondant.   I adhere my edible icing sheets to the fondant with a very thin smear of butter cream.    Let it set up for a few days...it will be a hard "plaque".   Then add your stick to the back with white chocolate and hide the stick with a strip of fondant.

I left out the step that after you adhere the image to the fondant...........you need to cut out with an exaxto knife.  I'm sure you figured that out!  LOL.....if you let the image sit on the fondant for a little bit...10-15 minutes...the fondant won't stretch when you try to cut it out.
