Hi everyone, well I recently got an edible printer with the sheets and my question is how do u add an image to a cookie? I was asked to make some round cookies with an image, i know how to get the image but do u ice the cookies with royal icing and wait for it to dry then add the image? And what if i want to use mmf, how do u get the mmf to stick to the cookie? Do u add a little bit of royal icing then add the mmf on top or what? Can anyone please help?

I just put some RI on the cookie and then put the image on top.

Ok If you add mmf to the cookies when its still slightly warm it will stick. Or you can add a few dots of corn syrup to make it stick. Or most times it will even just stick to the cold cookies to!
You can also add the Edible Image to a cookie iced with a little RI or a little glaze on it. Its real simple to do ,go ahead and try a few. you will see theres nothing to it !

I do edible images all the time with MMF. I prefer to adhere the MMF to the cookie with thinned corn syrup after the cookie is cooled. I then make a circle with thinned corn syrup on the MMF, just about the size of the edible image. I am careful to use just a small brush and small amount of syrup, so that it does not get beyond the edges of the image. Place the image onto the cookie and press down on it a little to seal the edges. I usually emboss the edges around the cookie. Here are some I did for Christmas. HTH
