I'm working on a cake where the customer wants cheetah and zebra prints on the tiers (one design on each tier.  Is it better to produce an edible image on a frosting sheet, or buy the sugar sheets to apply to the cake.  I'll be applying to a cake with buttercream frosting.

No sugar sheets!!! They are disgusting and so not worth the $4 a sheet. I used them once and they tasted horrible and weren't really as edible as they are meant to be. Everyone pulled them off of the cake and into the trash they went. Personally, I would pipe it. Cheetah and leopard and such easy prints I would probably just pipe it. If you don't feel like you can, definitely an edible image.
