Can I attach edible images to gum paste figures? I'm working on a superhero cake and I need to attach or 8 superhero figures...any suggestions?

Yes you can, I do it all the time.

You have to do it a few days in advance so it has time to dry though.

I print out the image I want to do and roll my gum paste out to the thickness I want. I cut out the image with scissors leaving a small outline. I wet the gum paste with my finger(Not too wet) and then peel the image and put it on the gum paste. smooth it out and then cut it out following the outline of the image.
I do a stadium cake that has a scoreboard and this is how I do it.
I hope that helps!

You can also place the image on the rolled out gumpaste and then use an exacto knife and cut both at the same time.
