AI really really need help, soon! I have to make this car cake. Cake is fine, fondant is fine but these stickers are driving me nuts! I was going to use edible pens on rice paper however rice paper doesn't give you clean lines when you draw on it as i have JUST found out! So i thought id get sugar paper but i cant get in i. White here in the uk and theres no time to order any. Then i thought draw on sugarpaste but that has its own problems in that i cant draw on them in advance because they need to bend with the contours of the cake. Can anyone please help?!

AHi, the problem is i have to start tomorrow and theres nowhere here in the uk that i can get them printed. Ive just read about flexible royal icing. It would be alot of work and im not sure of my piping skills but ive kind of run out of options! Any thoughts?

I've done them on gum paste [flower paste].  I color the paste, cut it to size, place it on the car, and then use edible markers to do art & printing. I let the paste surface dry a bit [dusting with a bit of corn flour helps, too].  It works fine.

I've gotten pretty clean lines on rice paper, using americolor gel colors and a really fine paint brush.  There is a graduation cake in my gallery that i did this with.
