I have a bride who wants fondant wrapped "dummy" cakes with real photos of her and the groom from their college years. The photos are on real photo paper. Could someone please tell me the best "glue" to use to attach photos to fondant? None of this will be edible!

vs getting edible images,  I take good color scans of the photos, always using a same size fondant piece so the scan photo doesnt touch the cake.   I take a small piece of fondant and add small amount of hot water  and stir till fondant is liquid and sticky , not sticky enough add more fondant.  using a new tiny paint brush take the glue and cover the fondant piece   ( then lightly dab that piece with a paper towel absorb extra liquid but it still keeps the piece sticky ) add the photo on top and smooth over to avoid air bubbles ,   I always tell them it is not edible and the fondant piece needs to be removed before cutting.   works like a charm for me and my people who order them
