There is a good possibility that your local supermarket, if they have a deli and sell cakes, or Walmart will print your images for you on their edible printer.  The ones in our town will and charge the same as for a cake decoration.

If you go to eBay, make sure the person is not located in China. It will take forever to get it. Just pay attention to where they are located. You local supermarket should be able to help you. I would try them first before going online. Good luck!!

If you want these exact images, you will have to find them on line, size as desired, then print.  Take your printed page to the market and have them reproduce them on sugar sheets.

Sadly Walmarts will not do it and I'm not aware of any supermarkets that will either. Costco and BJ won't either, unless you buy a cake. Your best chance is to find someone around you, who has an edible printer, even then your odds are slim, to much competition.

It won't let me edit my post and I wanted to say that IF you were to contact Chelsea, she would make and sale you a new set. She's on etsy and her shop, is the very first that pops up when  searching for your image. You can clearly see watermark on them too. She's very nice try he, ChleaseCakeCompany.

@Alohilani ‍, our Walmart will do it and so will our local grocery store.  That is why I suggested it.

Yes, I know @SandraSmiley ‍ and you're lucky. I know of several states where that can be accomplished, however it's a state law. It only takes one bad apple to ruin everything. It come up when they decided to allow anybody to sale goods under the cottage law. It was a way, they found to protect B&M stores. The overhead is higher with those business so it kind makes sense. If one doesn't like it, well it's not to expensive to buy a dedicated printer and edible ink. It also come up in a lawsuit a few years back when someone sold a cake, they had made but used a bought image. It was a large birthday party, several people end up in the hospital- read huge lawsuit and court costs. The baker tried to say it wasn't the cake itself that made them sick, it was the bakery's fault because they sold her a contaminated image (yes, that's the exact word she used in court), which she claimed was the cause of the illnesses. Well the bakery got their own attorneys, and counter suit. The bakery had been in business for several generations, during the trial, it come to light that, they didn't even charge the woman for the image. They had done it, to help her out. She claimed it was for her own child but she wanted to make the cake herself. There was a video from the security cameras and some lip reading was involved. It was a mess, in the end, the bakery won. After that several business got involved, had the law passed and made the CLR more strict. Bakers under the CLR can use images bought online but it varies from county to county and even city to city.
