Image on a cake

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My client wants this image on a cake...

I have never ever done an image before.. Where do I start? How should I put this on a cake? I don't have any equipment to print it off on edible paper.. Is there a place I go to to for that? Or is there a way to trace a pipe it on? Don't know what to do!

you can go to your local cake shop and ask them to print this for you on edible icing sheet that you place on your cake :-)

How about a frozen bc transfer? I did my first one yesterday & love it - am so happy to have found something new. It is a dogs head and looks great. You can find tutorials online.

Since this is a cartoon image, I would trace the image onto a sheet of wafer paper (rice paper) with a food safe black marker. Then fill it in like a coloring book page with edible food markers. This is what we used to do back in the day, before edible image printers became so popular, and it is so easy to do!

I googled this and came up with these examples. I hope this helps.
