Can anyone please tell me if there is a method to transfering a pattern onto a cake with some kind of ink (edible). I would like to draw on parchment and press it onto the sides of the cake. Piping gel might be a little thick? I was thinking of something that would look more like ink on the sides? Any ideas?
I sure don't have the answer but surely someone else can help you!! Good luck....
If you are using a crusting frosting you can use the pin prick method. I did the dodger cake in my photos with it. You print the picture out then take a pin or even a toothpick and poke holes along the design. When the icing has crusted gently set the paper on the cake and rub slight it will leave dots from the holes for you to follow.
OK thanks I'll give it a try.
