My brother got his cake specially made at a bakery, he wanted a cool picture of Dragon Ball Z on it and printed one out from the web and gave it to them. The finished project had the printed picture turned into edible paper.

How did they do that? is there some kind of machine for it?

I used to work at a grocery store bakery.  There is a special printer that's sold that has edible 'ink'/food color cartridges instead of regular ones.  Pretty Clever, I say.

We would get an image - usually a picture - and send it to the main bakery where they had the printer.  They would print the image on a thin sheet of fondant and ship it back to us.

I was going to list a few sites I found about this but there's a whole bunch to look at!  Type "edible images" in Google and you'll find images already on rice paper, plain rice paper AND I even found places that sell the edible ink!!!

Also, there are now edible markers so you could create your own artwork and just place it on the cake!

Pretty cool.

Have fun!

I got some of those markers. They worked OK for the 'confetti' i drew on the cake, but the tip was very big and hard to work with. The wording and the pictures I tried to draw didn't look very good at all. I put spots all over the cake to hide that fact. Grin
