Due by 9 am eastern Fri...

I am making a groomscake with a wafer paper drawing of a landscaping blueprint. I drew it on with edible markers and colours.

I had planned to attach it to the cake with piping gel but I thought it would look better with the edges curling up slightly.

I tried a sample just putting the gel in the middle of the wafer paper (leaving a border at the edges) and sticking in on BC. I don't like the look of the middle part of the wafer paper that is sticking to the cake.

I think I should just lay it on the cake itself and not attach it at all.

Is that okay to use my "artistic" judgement? Basically they could've just printed out the picture on regular paper and shoved it on the top of a cake and saved a lot of time and money.

I only bake for friends and family but this friend of a friend had tasted my cakes told her friend and next thing you know I am baking this cake with about 2 weeks notice. I don't want to be ripping anyone off.

Advice, opinions, rants are more than welcome.

I'll get up early to finish things off in the morning and check cc.

Did anyone pm you advice??
How did this come out?
I'd like to know as I have always stuck the wafer paper to the cake w/piping gel OR used it off the cake as a banner etc.
