Hello fellow cake makers!!!

Hoping you can help me with a small problem i have been having.

I have a race car cake to make and I am trying to use edible image decals on it, but they do not seem to want to stick to the fondant very well. I wet the fondant just slightly, enough to make it stick, however it dries quick and then the decal seems to peel away......

Any suggestions??

I'd try brushing a very THIN layer of piping gel on the back of the image. You can do it directly on the fondant too, but don't make it bigger than the image other wise you will end up with a shiny/wet look around the attached image.  Hope you have success with this.
