Edible Image on Fondant - Page 2

post #16 of 33
I like for my image to be cutout with a xacto knive, before I lay it on fondant or butter cream. It is easy to do , a little time consuming, but worth the look. Looks more professional.

Yes the color will show thru onto the white , from a dark fondant background.

Put your piping gel on the fondant, then lay the piece onto the cake. Its works better this way., because if you put the piping gel on the image first, then it gets wet and messy and harder to handle.

I hope I have answered all question for you. If not ask some more or personnel email me. I am always glad to help. Plus I have used the system for 9 years and used it in alot of different ways and mediums.

If you go to my website, look under wedding cakes, look at the tatoo cake, that is a PhotoFrost image , cut out and laid on fondant, icon_lol.gif Happy Decorating.

Thanks for the info Lisa. There are some incredible cakes on your web site. Stunning work! I love the way you use Photofrost paper - you have some imagination! icon_smile.gif

I have one problem that I'm trying to get my head around...



I'm trying to find an easy way of placing the heart shaped logo onto the stadium seats as above. I used rice paper before, simply by sitting the paper on top of the fondant dry. I really want to find a way using Photofrost paper instead as the quality is far superior.

Any advice is helpful. icon_smile.gif

Sorry mods/admin... I can't edit the previous posts to remove the large pic as I can't scroll to the right. I've tried using both explorer and Firefox.

This is a good question. I love using wafer paper in certain mediums also, but I don't like using it on cake that has to be cut and ate., its thicker and heavier as you know. I like using PhotoFrost printing with the wafer paper for butterflies, etc.

The PhotoFrost sheets are really nice to work with. of course he makes them right in his business . So they have hands on with them. They are not made else where and shipped in. Always fresh.

YOu definetyly have me on this question and how to do it the way you are thinking. Even I keep learning as I work with the icing images, and from other people.

I am sorry on not being able to help you on this one;0)

I would also like to know about edible images, because I'm thinking of purchasing one of those printers, but not sure which one will work better

YOu bet, go with PhotoFrost System, they make eveything in house and quailty controled right here in the USA... I have watched PhotoFrost do all icing sheets and edible inks right in house. I like this. Plus they have very great personnel services and Youtube and they have great information videos on alot of questions that you may have, but you can also call PhotoFrost personnelly, they are always glad to help you and help you make the decision.

I recommend that you go with Canon printers. They have the whole printer kit, icing sheets, cartidges, etc with this system available.

Again, I like it because its not made in china cartidges, sheets etc.. icon_biggrin.gif

I am more then glad to help, Lisa

I know with our Premium Icing Sheets you can use a little bit of crisco on the back of the icing sheet. This allows you time to manipulate and move the icing sheet without bleeding.

I found a workaround for my problem. I colour matched the maroon colour within the heart shape and simply stuck the heart onto the seats using a thin layer of water on the icing.

I can not print my own edible image, but I have Wal-Mart make them for me, such as pictures of the grandchildren. About the scrapbook pages.
Do you mean, I can choose a sheet of printed scrapbook paper and have an edible image made from the sheet? I doubt that Wall-Mart will do that, on second thought, because they will say it's has copywright rules. But if they will, can I have an image made from the scrapbook page? Thanks,
Opal
