I had another thread on this but no replies so thought I'd try here...

How do you use fondant and edible images to make things like "money", "magazines", "diplomas", and etc? Do you roll out the fondant shape, moisten it, stick on the image, and then let it dry for a week or so? Or, do you let the fondant dry first, then moisten the top and put the image on while you decorate the cake?

BUTRCUP, I DON'T SEE WHY NOT AS LONG AS YOUR FILLINGS DON'T HAVE DAIRY, AS FAR AS THE IMAGE GOES IT'LL BE FINE JUST MAKE A LITTLE BORDER AROUND IT TO KEEP THE EDGES DOWN,
KITGIRL, BOTH WAYS WORK BUT I THINK IT'S BETTER TO DO EVERYTHING BEFORE DRYING

..yes it will be just fine, I always have my cakes finished a day or two ahead of time and leave them on the counter in a cake box! I have also kept finished cakes in the fridge for a day or two, if the filling needs to be cold!

You can use piping gel (very thin layer) or water (can cause image to fade if there are a lot of chemicals in your water) to attach edible images/frosting sheets to fondant. The plastic backing can be used as a template to cut the fondant to shape. If you need the fondant image to be stiff/stand up, you'd let it dry until it become hard.

If you don't use your printer regularly, the print head can become clogged. If I'm not going to be printing an image for at least 3 weeks to a month (less for some people because of dryer climates), I remove the edible ink cartridges and clean the print head leaving cleaning cartridges installed. No problems as long as you maintain your printer properly.
