If it is a tattoo cake I would really recommend painting it on there. Maybe create a stencil of each. Unfortunately that is going to be time consuming and you only have two days. The only other thing I can think of is printing it on rice paper and putting them on there. That way it would be really thin and look better than cutting out fondant or an icing image. I'll be interested to see how this one turns out. Good luck!
