I'm new to all of this and want to make a cake or cookie for my son who will be leaving for college in a couple of week. I want to do the logo of the college on the cake or cookie but don't know how to go about transferring it from my paper to the cake. What would be the best way and easiest? The only picture I have is the one that I printed off the computer. Thanks for all your help and ideas.

For a crisp clean image, I recommend tracing it out and cutting it from gum paste or fondant. It's the only way I'll do it, I stay away from edible images or hand piping. I like crisp lines.

you could always do a frozen buttercream transfer. There is a tutorial on here on how to do it. It has always worked for me.
