Can someone please explain this product to me? I am wondering if I should purchase it... what do you use it for specifically.... how easy is it to work with.... just some advice or suggestions on uses would be great
I haven't ever used it, but I think it is the same as rice paper. You can use it with the edible ink printers to print pictures that you lay onto the cake. There are all kinds of printable things though, like I have heard of people making butterflies and other little decorations like that. I don't know how it is to work with though, sorry. Maybe someone else will know a little more.
Rice paper is the 'old' name for it as it was once made from rice. Wafer paper is now it's proper name.
It is very similar to the host used in the Catholic church for communion. It melts in your mouth.
Large amounts of it are hard to cut thru on a cake. Frosting sheets (many times refered to as edible images; however EI is a trademark name for a specific company) is made from very thin sheets of fondant. It is better to use this newer product for making/printing pix.
Wafer paper is very good for making b'flies That extra weight (as compared to frosting sheets) makes them a bit nicer - they stand up better
Great info, thanks.
so yes or no on wafer paper in the edible image printers?
