Hello everyone I am getting ready to try my hands at a movie reel cake with images.  Can't say for whom. It may ruin the surprise.  Can someone tell me please how to get the images from the computer into the blank movie strips. I would like to scan them in and adjust size if possible. Only other way I can think of is to use an exacto knife and cut the individual pictures and movie strips one at a time. I worry this would not look even around the edges?  Please HELP!!! All advice will be greatly appreciated Thank you.

Print the movie strip in full colour on fondant paper, then you will have the movie reel look intact. If the background is white and the cake is white, there will be no problem. From a distance it will look like you have stuck a real movie reel on the cake. I know there are design programmes that you can add the movie strip effect on your photos. If you can't find one, then look or ask friends to look for a piece of an old negative, then scan that, adjust the size on your computer and copy/paste the images on prior to printing.

Hope the above makes sense.
