I love the look of this cake but I don't know how to make the images.  Are they printed and put on gumpaste or are they hand painted?  If they are printed, where do I have them printed and what are they printed on?  Thank you for your help!

Thank you, ma'am.  If you want to paint the images, roll your fondant fairly thickly, about 1/8 inch, cut it out into the desired shape and let it dry for several days to a couple of weeks.  It will help to add Tylose to the fondant to help it dry more quickly.

I so appreciate the tips - do you use regular food coloring as your paint?  You are a true artist!!

Thank you, sweet coloradocache!  What I have found that works best is mixing powdered colors with vodka or lemon extract.  You can use gel colors, but you should thin them down a bit with alcohol or they take an eternity to dry.  My best discovery was tiny, nail art brushes!  They make painting on small sugar pieces so much easier.
