I HAVE A GENTLEMAN THAT WANTS TO SURPRISE HIS WIFE WITH A BIRTHDAY CAKE. I HAVE TO BAKE THE CAKE TONIGHT. HE THINKS HE WANTS AN EDIBLE IMAGE ON THE CAKE OF THEIR KIDS.
WELL, MY QUESTION IS-CAN I FROST AND DO MY BORDER IN THE MORNING, BRING THE CAKE TO TOWN TO HAVE THE IMAGE MADE (HE CAN'T GET IT TO ME BEFORE THEN) AND THEN PLACE IT ON MY CAKE? THE BUTTERCREAM WILL ALREADY BE CRUSTED BUT THEY WILL NOT BE EATING IT UNTIL THURSDAY.
WILL THE IMAGE BE ABLE TO "MELD" WITH THE ICING OK AFTER IT HAS CRUSTED?
I have done it before and it was fine. You shouldnt have any problems.
Yes the cake needs to be smooth when you put the image on. FYI, these edible images tear VERY easy. I did one with the Betty Boop in my pictures.
It will be fine. I always paint some piping gel on the back of my image to help it lay down flat.
if you lightly spray the cake with water from a little misting bottle the edible image should stick no problem.
Thank you everyone for your replies. I always appreciate the help that I receive from everyone!
I absolutely agree with sweetkisscakes. Just spray the area that you are to place the image over very lightly with a fine mist spray and it will stick right to it. Do it all the time... Just be sure not to saturate...very light spray.
