I would think that would be fine, especially if you back it with either fondant or gumpaste. Also, you would have to make sure that everyone understands that the image is not edible. HTH

Thanks Jenise for your reply.

Its going to be a butter cream cake. was worried about the plastic touching the cake. As you say, Fondant backing to the rescue !!

I've used a laminated picture before with no issues. I laminated the photo and then trimmed the lamination and photo down. I was afraid the buttercream would seep between the lamination and distort the photo at the time. However, it turned out fine. I even hollowed out the cake, placed a mini baking tin inside & threw in some LEDs so the photo glowed. Everyone loved it and there were no issues. Hope that helps icon_smile.gif

You could use parchment paper instead of fondant. Attach parchment with a little bc.

Thanks Linda/Pieceofcake561. Even if i place some sort of backing to the picture, when i lift it up to cut and serve, is there anything that i can do before hand so that all the bc wont come out along with the picture. i dont want to lose the b.c. icing. Unless when i ice the cake, let the icing dry a bit and then place the picture on top and then do a border around the picture ( i may hav answered my own question!!!!) Tks.

Someone said to put in on fondant first, then apply to the cake. Great idea! But why not go a step further, and make the fondant look like a picture frame, then insert the picture into it?! icon_smile.gif

You could sprinkle a little powdered sugar over the icing under the picture then frame it with icing.
