AHi all! I hate to be a nuisance and all with "how do I do this or that " but I need some great advice! I have someone asking about a cake like the one pictures below. I told her I need to do some research, well I'm having trouble. Any advice on drawing/painting these images around the fondant cake like that? (Anchor hearts, flower bird etc) I'm not too worried about the skull, but these 'tatoo' looking images are scaring me haha.

All advice GREATLY appreciated!

Anyway you could get the images and print them with edible ink?  I did a cake with tattoo images that was made with custom drawings the couple provided.  I printed them on VIF edible sheets (http://www.ediblesupply.com/category-s/1906.htm), cut them out and placed on the cake. I painted the surface of the cake with piping gel thinned with a little water and they adhered fine.

Some of those look like they are with printed on fondant sheets, or printed like I did and put on fondant cut outs.  I'm not able to freehand draw very well, so this was the only option that would work for me.

This is the cake:
