Where do I go to get Edible Images and Photos on Cakes?

Hi, I am trying to make a birthday cake for my son with an imagee of his favorite superhero on it.

Where do I go to get Edible Images and Photos on Cakes? So far the best website I found was www.Edibleinkpaper.com

Does anyone know this website or others that may be good?

Supermarkets with an in store baker do the cakes with the printing on them. you can bring in a photo and they will put it on a cake. they basically get it printed onto a thin layer of icing and put that onto the cake. Which country are you in?

If the UK you should have a look at these people thecakedecoratingcompany.co.uk

Sometimes the stores will print them for you for a fee.  However, they are not allowed to make copies of any copyrighted/trademarked material. Some have preprinted ones of super heroes. If  not another thing I've done when decorating at home is buy a cheap picture frame and sanitize it put the picture inside and then place that on a cake. Dollar stores usually have cheap plastic ones that you won't have to worry about glass or anything.

Welcome to the forum BatDragon   smile

My friend has had this sort of thing done by downloading her photo and ordering the printed icing on line .
No idea what website she has used sorry .

I have a different idea .. When my children were small I used to buy small action figures ( or even larger ones !)  decorate the cake simply then put the action figure onto the cake as part of the decoration.
This was always very well accepted , it looked good and it was lime getting an extra present as well and  giving hours of fun well after the cake had been finished .
