Hubby went on a business trip this week and found a cake supply store he bought me a few things and in his bag is a pkg of rice paper I've read where people have used it but I'm not sure exactly how
The best thing is to make b'flies or fall leaves
You want to use it for small embellishments on a cake as once on a cake it gets tough for cutting & eating.
Yrs ago before frosting sheets it was used to make drawings. Used colored piping gel.
For b'flies, use non-toxic, felt-tipped pens (or get food colored pens) and draw from the top of the pic down. Don't let the pen linger at anytime on the paper as it will melt it and make a hole. Work as quickly as you can. When drawing, don't rest your h and on the wafer paper as the moisture in your hand will cause the paper to buckle. Make a small pad of paper towels to put under the hand.
You also can use colored chalks instead.
If you have an airbrush you can make beautiful, perfect fall leaves Just trace the outline of the leaf, then airbrush red, orange, yellow, brown, &/or green, even pink overlapping the colors. Just use a very light spray. The wafer paper will curl up - don't worry, that's what you want
Cut out w/scissors after it has dried - about an hour.
