Hi everyone. I am having an eclipse party (can not wait). I found the perfect picture that I would like, however it is from ebay and from Australia. Can anyone please let me know where I can get the edible topper with this exact picture? If I have to I will order it from Australia, but I am trying not to do that. Thank you for your help.

edible image?? or topper? If you want an edible image you could alway print the picture out and take it to a local grocery chain with a bakery section and have them print out an edible image....Before I got a edible printer I would take images all the time and they charged something like $8.00

Have the edible image made, like cakeheart stated... but not to large and then you could put it on a harden square of fondant, (like a poster board) and put it on top of the cake as a topper...does that make sence....brace it in the back so it stands up like a poster...all edible. just a thought.

Be prepared for the bakery to refuse to copy it though. It's a copyrighted image. I know my bakery wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole, even if we just offered to sell only edible images.

Because the Twilight series has been so big, you may be able to find a generic Twilight edible image at a store that they sell on their cakes. You could see if they would just sell you the image instead of the entire cake. Depending how far out your party is, you might be able to find one online too. I know it probably won't be the exact image you want, but it will still carry the theme and may be an alternate solution because of the copyright issues.

Well, does it have to be an edible image...? As a back up plan, I would suggest printing the picture approximately the size that will fit on the cake comfortably. Then, just laminate it, making sure you use your thumb or fingernail to seal around the picture. I bought a roll of laminate that only cost me $5 a roll at Walmart. Place a strip of buttercream icing to the back of the laminated pic and it helps it stick to the cake. Just a suggestion!!!
