An edible image provides me with the ability to take a picture and actually put it on your cake, cupcakes or cookies. Using a special printer with food-grade inks, I am able to print anything your heart desires on special sheets of frosting paper. The image is then placed on a frosted cake, cupcakes or cookies and the sheet 'melts' into the frosting, becoming part of it, and you are left with your own unique image on your cake, cupcakes or cookies! This method is safe, tastes great, and really personalizes your cake, cupcakes or cookies! Excellent for any occasion, but particularly popular for occasions like graduations or birthdays!
YES! As mentioned, I use only food-grade edible inks, and a special printer that does not come in contact with any non-edible inks. For your safety this printer is dedicated to one task only... making your cake, cookies or cookies look extra special! The sheets the images are printed on are simply a thin layer of special frosting that has been designed solely for this purpose.
Within a few minutes of being placed on the cake, cupcakes or cookies (depending on relative humidity) the frosting sheet on which the image has been printed will begin to 'melt' into the background icing. Your image will remain intact, but it will be part of the frosting. It will absorb the taste of the frosting and should not have any taste itself.
Virtually anything! Your only limit is your imagination! You can choose a picture of yourself or someone else, a group photo, pets, friends, family, company logos, clip art, any image that can be digitally downloaded (including email and Facebook) or scanned can become an edible image. If you bring me a picture or image of any kind I can arrange to have it scanned. I can also arrange to have images downloaded from a wide range of usb storage devices and memory cards. If you require a particular image but don't already have it I will be happy to search the internet for you and try to find exactly what you want! If required, I can also add custom text to your image.
In order to cover the cost of materials an additional charge of $5 per sheet will be added to all edible image orders. A 'sheet' consists of either a 20.32cm round, letter size (21.59cm x 27.94cm) rectangle, or a dozen 5.08cm circles for cookies / cupcakes.
