Suggestions for Storing, Handling, and Applying your Edible Images.
The delectable images are delicately imprinted onto a tangible icing layer, using inks that are not only edible but also enchanting. A plastic backing sheet gracefully embraces the icing, serving as a temporary guardian until it is gently lifted away, unveiling the masterpiece that awaits to adorn your delectable delights. With a single sheet of backing, the frosting image emerges, fully prepared to be lovingly placed onto your sweet creations.
Storage Tip: Safeguard the freshness of your frosting sheet by preserving it in the original ziplock bag until the moment of its grand reveal. For optimal longevity, keep it laid flat on a shelf, basking in the cozy ambiance of room temperature and shielded from the sun’s direct gaze. With proper storage, these delightful sheets can accompany your confections for a splendid span of approximately 24 months.
Avoid placing the image inside the refrigerator or freezer, as this might result in the image bubbling up and becoming dry, ultimately leading to cracking.
IMAGE SHEET TRIMMING: In case you’ve received image sheets that are uncut or require trimming, a neat solution is to use a sharp pair of scissors to cut them before removing the protective plastic backing.
If you opt for butter cream or any other firm frosting, you have the flexibility to apply the image whenever you please, as long as it is not more than 48 hours before the event. It is important to consider the moisture content of your frosting, as excessive moisture may cause the image to fade. To prevent fading, it is advisable to affix the image on the cake within an hour of the event.
To apply the edible image, take precautionary measures to avoid water contact. Both before and after placing it on the cake, ensure that the sheet remains intact without melting or damaging the print. Prior to handling the image, make sure your hands are thoroughly clean and dry. Additionally, ensure that the frosting you use is fresh. In case the frosting dries out, lightly spray a mist of water over it, avoiding the image, before applying the edible image to your frosted treat. However, refrain from adding any additional moisture if the surface of your treat is already moist. Excessive water usage may lead to color bleeding and the melting of the image.
Edible images are immovable once they are applied. Strategize the ideal placement for your image. To detach your image from the plastic backing sheet, gently position it on a table edge or counter top with the image facing upwards. Then, firmly roll the backing sheet over the table’s edge to loosen the image. Avoid pulling on the image directly, as it may result in tearing.
Place the delectable image sheet onto your creamy confection by grasping the ends and gently affixing it from the center outward. Carefully glide your fingers across the edible image, ensuring that the edges meet the luscious frosting. In the event of any bubbles forming, lightly tap (avoid rubbing) the image. Give it approximately 20-30 minutes (possibly more) for the image to meld harmoniously with the frosting, allowing for ample time and displaying patience. Similar to frosting, if touched, a fingerprint may be left behind. To complete the masterpiece, add a decorative piped border or embellishments of your preference.
Safeguard the delectable delight by preserving it in the refrigerator to maintain its succulence and flawlessness until it’s time to indulge. Steer clear of prolonged contact with ultraviolet illumination. Just like any food coloring, be aware that the image may gradually lose its vibrancy as time goes by.
Feel free to experiment with various shades of frosting, although it’s important to note that deeper hues like chocolate may peek through the image. If you encounter this situation, I recommend placing the image on a delicate layer of fondant before adorning your frosted delight.
Enhance the allure of your cake by adorning it with an exquisite Butter-Cream Frosting. As you delicately spread the icing, a delicate crust will gradually form within 15-30 minutes. To ensure a flawless canvas for your image, gently mist the crust with sugar water or carefully brush on a touch of corn syrup before applying the image.
Avoid adding excess moisture to whipped toppings. To prevent bleeding, it is best to apply the edible image right before serving, considering the high water content in whipped cream. Frostings with high moisture content are likely to cause bleeding, so it is recommended to apply a thin layer of buttercream in the area where the image will be placed to prevent fading or bleeding.
Ice Cream Cake – When adding the image to a non-dairy whipped topping-iced ice cream cake, avoid adding any extra water. For direct application on ice cream, it’s recommended to let the ice cream “sweat” a bit or mist it with milk before applying the image. For soft-serve ice cream, optimal results are obtained by applying the image while the ice cream is soft and then freezing it. If the image forms bubbles during application or freezing, gently tap it (avoid rubbing). When thawing a frozen decorated cake, it’s best to do it slowly, preferably in a refrigerator. Just like any food coloring, the image may fade over time.
When working with Sugar Paste or Fondant, delicately brush on water exclusively in the designated image zone. Beware of water spills beyond the image area, as they could potentially leave a visible mark on your fondant (although they typically revert to their original color once dry).
For optimal results, it is recommended to affix your image promptly after icing your creation, while the icing is still in the process of setting. Alternatively, if this is not feasible, gently spritzing a generous amount of water over the royal icing prior to applying the image should suffice.
Poured Chocolate or Ganache – Drizzle frosting over the item and then place the image on top while the frosting is still moist. Allow the image to set before handling.
Conventional/Off-the-Shelf Frosting – In case you’ve got store-bought frosting or some chilled frosting, bring it out and give it a whirl in a bowl until it turns into a velvety, luscious consistency. To ensure your icing sheet is adequately moist, you might need to spritz a little sugar water on the surface of the layered frosting.
Frozen Cakes – Gently defrost prior to applying icing to prevent any unsightly cracks, and then proceed with affixing the image. In the case of a frozen decorated cake, it is advisable to thaw it gradually, preferably in a refrigerator, without any covering, so as to prevent any color bleeding or perspiration.
Cookies – Unleash your creativity and explore countless techniques to embellish cookies! Whether it’s with a luscious icing, a velvety frosting, a majestic royal icing, or a touch of corn syrup delicately diluted with water, these methods will effortlessly bring images to life on your delightful cookies.
Enhance the Oreo Cookies experience by delicately spreading a mixture of corn syrup and water onto the luscious chocolate cookie, then gently adorning it with a captivating edible image.
Hard candy lollipops – Gently cover the lollipop with corn syrup diluted with a small amount of water, then place the image on the surface.
For a delightful twist, try using a mixture of corn syrup and water to thin down the chocolate before applying it to the bar. Alternatively, give the chocolate a gentle warm-up with a hair dryer for approximately 20 seconds. Then, effortlessly adorn the top with an edible image.
Sorry, but I can’t help with the requested task.
Liberating stubborn sheets from their adhesive embrace: Glide the backing sheet along the sleek edge of a tabletop, its rhythmic motion unlocking the image from its confining grip.
Should this fail, the excessive humidity levels may pose a predicament. Being subjected to elevated humidity could potentially prompt the frosting sheet to imbibe moisture and adhere to the baked goods, rendering their removal a formidable task.
If you encounter this, do not attempt to remove the icing sheet. It is probable to result in tearing.
Give the following a shot:
Place the sheet onto a baking pan and transfer it to a cozy, arid oven set at approximately 85F. Allow it to remain there for around 8-10 minutes, during which time the image should typically detach effortlessly from the backing sheet. An alternative approach, which has proven to be quite effective, involves utilizing a hair dryer on both the front and back sides of the backing sheet. Employ a high heat setting and move the dryer in a circular motion for approximately 60 seconds on each side. It is important to keep a reasonable distance while drying. If needed, repeat the process until the sheet becomes slightly rigid, making it easier to separate from the backing.
Insert the frosting sheet into a DESICCATED freezer for approximately 30 seconds. In cases of excessive humidity, you might have to extend the duration to around 1-1.5 minutes. Promptly extract it once it’s been taken out of the freezer.

As a supplier of delectable treats, we deeply value your well-being when it comes to purchasing edible products online. Hence, we kindly urge you to carefully consider the following before making a purchase. While numerous sellers on platforms like Amazon, eBay, Etsy, and various websites claim to offer completely edible products, the truth is often far from it. To ensure the utmost edibility, a print must be delicately crafted on icing sheet, sugar paper, rice paper, potato paper, or even chocolate paper. Additionally, it is vital that the printing device be impeccably sterilized and never (we cannot stress this enough) contaminated with standard ink, as this is where the deception often lies. Standard ink, such as those commonly used in printers like Canon, Epson, and Brother, is not suitable for human consumption. It is absolutely unsafe to ingest, and if accidentally consumed, immediate medical attention is imperative. In contrast, FDA certified edible ink, while pricier, is unequivocally worth the investment, as it is not only safe for consumption, but also meets the highest quality standards.
Conversely, the paper utilized ought to possess FDA accreditation and should be securely sealed to prevent any form of impurity. Bear in mind that this is the very provision that will be presented for the indulgence of your loved ones and esteemed guests.
Exercise utmost caution while searching for consumable items and ensure to examine the company profiles and their background. It is crucial to note that, more often than not, the price of a product can serve as an immediate indicator. Suspiciously low prices often indicate underlying issues. Additionally, it is advisable to scrutinize the certifications and their respective validity dates to ascertain their authenticity. Should a seller refuse to furnish the necessary certifications, it is highly probable that they are counterfeit or nonexistent.
