I have to make a football cake next weekend and place a tiger head on the ball. Since I do not have printer to print edible images, nor do I have anyplace in town, I order one online. Received the image yesterday and it looks horrible.

My solution was to place wax paper over image and use color flow to duplicate, however I can not find color flow any where in my town. No time now to order. If I make the image out of royal icing will it work????

I have tylose, but I don't know if that will help? Advice would be appreciated.

you can use r/i just like you do color flow.. stiffer for the outline. weakened with water for the flow.. been doing it for 14 yrs.. hth
