Rice paper images

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Could someone please write out the process to trace and paint an image onto rice paper. Should I use edible markers, or paint it on with gel? Never done this before and have to do a cake next week with this cartoon image...

First you make sure the image is the correct size for the cake you are putting on. Then you place your rice paper sheet on top of the drawing and trace it with black edible marker, Then you fill it in with edible colored marker, just like you are coloring in a coloring book.

I have never tried painting with gel.

Okay, that sounds easy enough. Thank you! Now I just gotta find the rice paper! I live in Colorado, would anyone know where? I have looked at hobby lobby and didn't find it

I can't find anything, aside from basic colorings and tools, locally. I ordered some from global sugar art, but I'm sure they carry it at exclusive cake supply stores.

Use an edible maker or edible pencil to make the outline, then color. You can use luster dust, summer dust, petal dust mixed with vodka or lemon extract to color your designs. You can also mix the color gel with vodka to make a paint. Here is a video that explains how to.
