Help! Non-edible paper and fondant question.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Is it possible to print on a regular piece of paper (non-edible) and attach it to a piece of fondant? I’m trying to make a plaque (fondant) and I don’t have a printer for edible sheets. Thanks!!

Is this not possible at all? Or am I not making sense of what I'm asking? TIA

So, you want to print a picture on regular printer paper and attach it to fondant to decorate a cake? I am not an expert on what is toxic and what isn't, but I wouldn't be doing that.

Yes, I'm just using it as a decoration...it's not directly going on the cake and obviously it wont be eaten. I just wanted to know if the paper would stick to the fondant.

I don't think the paper will stick to the fondant unless you would like brush it with something that would make it stick. I would honestly not do that unless the picture is edible !

Oh, I get it. I have never tried doing that, so maybe someone else will have a better idea, but you would at least have to get the paper wet to make it stick (and probably use something to keep it stuck) and I know that regular printer paper buckles and wrinkles when it gets wet, so I don't think it would work for you.

I have done it before in a pinch and it worked just fine.

 

I damped a paper towel and gently wiped it over the dried fondant disks I was using.

 

Placed the round paper cutouts on it.  I'm sure you could use a thin coat of piping gel or something....

 

I also used my extruder and put borders around the dried fondant circles just to make sure it would keep the edges down.

 

Good luck!  And of course, I made sure to tell them they were not edible at all!

Aah, cake. . .the 5th food group!!

You're right....I don't know why I didn't think of it (paper buckling). Thanks!! :)

Awesome! Thanks!

When I attach a paper label to a cake with fondant, I use double stick tape to attach waxed paper to the back of the label.  Then I use piping gel to attach it to the cake.  Using the waxed paper under the label will keep the non-edible ink from coming through the paper onto the fondant, which would be eaten.
