I'm considering purchasing a printer to make edible images but wanted to ask - "How would it look, and would it work, to put an edible image on fondant and then put it on the cake iced with buttercream?

My desire is to have the edible image plaque look but be able to cut through it.

Does this make sense?

Also, for thoses who make edible images, what is the best printer and supplier?

Yes you can put edible images on fondant and then on tope of butter cream. There are only 2 brands of printers that I know of that you can get edible ink for that is canon and epson. It depends on who you talk to which printer they think is best. I read a lot of thread about the canon printers clogging so I went with an epson. It sits for long periods of time without being used and has yet to clog on me. I bought it on ebay for under $60 however, the model I have is no longer available. www.kopykake.com has a list of printers that edible ink is available for. You can get supplies from them or icing images or several other online sites.
