I'm making a graduation cake for "Oh, the Places You'll Go" by Dr. Seuss. I want to somehow scan the images of characters onto icing sheets or something to make a cake topper as well as other decorations. Any suggestions?

Are you asking about how to scan them or how to make it stand? If you have an edible printer, you can use any picture on your computer, scanned or otherwise, to print onto an icing sheet. If you don't, Walmart will sometimes sell it to you, although it being Dr. Seuss they may not due to copyright issues (depends on the store). There are also websites you can order them from in the size you want.
I don't have an edible printer, so I guess the ink in my printer is toxic? May have to come up with plan B as time is running out.
You can't use your regular printer on an edible icing image. You can print the picture and take it somewhere to get an edible image though. Or you can do a buttercream transfer. That may be your best bet now but it won't be able to stand up by itself.
AI did a cake like that last year. I printed out the character and then had it laminated so I could have it stand on top of the mountain.
