AYou could paint it on with gel colours mixed with vodka using a paint brush. It's actually very easy as there in no wrong way to paint the prints. The less uniformed, the more natural the prints look :)

AThat's a good idea thanks! I was going to get the duff prepaid fondant of the print but no store by me has it and I don't have the time to order it

I made this cake for my daughter :) i just used pink and black wilton gel colours mixed a little vodka. First time doing it, took about 10-15 mins. I just dabbed random pink "blobs" and traced them with the black paint (by traicing i mean lightly tapping my brush sideways around the pink part to form a letter C". Tap your excess "paint" so that it will not drip on your fondant. Good luck! Post photos :)

Use iDesigns from Icing Images,  If you have your own printer, you can print the pattern or you can have us print one for you and get an exact pattern. At that point you can either trace over it or leave as it is

last time i did it, I used this, except, instead of finishing with fondant, i put the spots right onto buttercream.
