I have my cake all frosted and am ready to put my edible image on. I just layed it on top and thought maybe it was suppose to stick. But the bc was crusted and I was able to just lift if off again. Am I suppose to mist the top of the cake or something? How do I make the image stick? I thought I'd try putting the cake in the freezer for a while then maybe I could brush thefrozen top with some gel and then lay it on. Who has done this before? It's my first time with this! Thanks so much for your time!!!
Never have let it dry before. Can you add a small amount of icing right where you want to put the image w/o ruining the top of the cake where you have smoothed? I don't know if you want to add water - that kinda disinigrates those images. - I don't know about that gel idea either. I tried to put one on whipped cream type icing before and it blurred really bad. - Maybe a little thin coat of melted butter or shortening - what ever you used in your icing may wet it enough. Sorry I don't have anything definate for you.....
buttercream should have had some moisture left.
I place a paper towel over image and rub lightly
You can also put a small border around the picture, half on the image and half on the cake to hold it down.
Re-icing the cake top
I read in my package once about misting the top,have not tried it.
I put my images in the freeze in order to remove them from the acetate easier, maybe this puts some moisture on them when they thaw, I have really never had this problem.
