This is the easiest way to get a classy design onto something edible. You can use this technique for cakes, cookies, and beyond. I had experimented so many ways to get Lightning McQueen onto a cookie with the most accuracy and the least hassle. It turns out - if you have a custom design to do and you want to do it perfectly, it's going to cost you the time to do so.
This process takes a number of days, depending on the quantity that you're creating.
The effect that you get in the end, is amazing! I'm pretty excited about how these turned out and I will always use this technique when I need a character of some sort.
Example: "I want a My Little Pony Cake!!!" All you have to do is find an image online that you like, or you can buy a coloring book at the dollar store for the framework. EASY! :D Or, you can draw your own, like I did for this project! :)
