I want to make some logos on a bunch of cake pops. It's a really simple logo [similar to the Lincoln Mercury logo for cars if you know what that looks like] but I don't think it will look good if I freeland draw it on with chocolate. 

I was thinking of using edible sheets that you can order online but because they are cake pops I feel like you have to put them on a fondant disc first and that's really time consuming. Has anyone ever done something like this using just chocolate or just fondant and made it look nice and neat? Will it take forever?

To answer your last question first: Yes, it will take forever.

 

But if that's not an issue, then I suggest doing the logos in fondant. I've done that on a couple of cakes in Baking with Love. You should be able to do just the same (smaller) with cake pops.

 

However, it would be less time consuming to do the small discs of fondant that you mention and then put edible paper prints on that. And it might look nicer too. Really doesn't take that long to make some suitable round fondant discs compared to handcrafting a (possibly) large amount of fondant logos.

Hi yes I've done edible image logos on cake pops, here's a pic. I just pushed the cake pop a bit so it was flat on one side then dipped in chocolate and adhered the edible image disc. I went around the edge of the disc with some clear piping gel and applied some crystal sugar to give it a finished edge.

 

You can't really apply the edible image disc to a curved surface so this was my way around it.

 

Hope this helps-
