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?
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.
