Can you use edible paper on cricut?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I'm wondering, can you use edible paper on cricut? I've only used gumpaste so far. I wonder how the edible paper comes out... anybody tried doing that?

I use frosting sheets all the time with my cutter. You can airbrush your frosting sheets. If you put your frosting sheet on a piece of cardstock paper that has shortening on it, you can tape the paper onto your cutting mat and then run it through your machine. What I like about this technique is there is shortening on the back of the frosting sheet and you can attach it to the cake.

Edible paper (not frosting sheets) is the ONLY thing I've ever been able to cut with my Cricut.

How do you stick the edible paper onto the cricut mat? With shortening? Does it kind of dissolve or get greasy?

Dayti, I lightly greased the mat with Crisco and set the sheet on top (plastic side down). It worked well.

IMO Wilton sheets are NOT the same as icingimages frosting sheets as far as quality. I've used several brands and icingimages are my favorites. 24 for $28 sure beats $4/ea. I scan scrapbook paper then print it on the sheets with an EI printer before cutting to get different designs. I also use the sheets with the silhouette so I can use MTC software and not the pricy cartridges the cricut requires.

www.icingimages.com They have chocolate and white but may be coming out with different colors in the future. You can airbrush them or run through an edible image printer.

so is edible paper like rice paper? where do you get it? and is it just in a white color? if you do cut outs with the cricut how do you go about painting or coloring the cutouts? sounds like a promising idea.

Frosting sheets and rice paper are not the same. icingimages has the best quality. See my post above for coloring.

If you go to the Lucks website (lucks.com) and look on the right hand side, there's a menu button that says "Cake Crafting" that takes you to a page featuring cakes that have a sort of "scrapbooking" look. On that page, toward the top, there's a text link to a .pdf that actually features a bunch of "how tos" and instructions on how to use edible papers with the Cricut machine.
