What I wanted to know was is it acceptable to have a non-edible image printed on a regular paper - regular laser printer and be used on a cake as accents which would not be eaten? Example here is the flags and the luggage tag that were printed out on a regular paper and then was pasted on a piece of gumpaste with edible glue and then placed on top of the cake (It was a gift and the receiver was informed). This was done due to time restriction and a last minute addition per request.
Here, I wanted to do the same thing (request was made the day before the party- hence time limitations) for a neighbor kid but then decided to do the topper with chocolate fondant instead as I felt it was not an acceptable thing as I hear about edible images all the time.
Please share your thoughts..
