I know I have seen this question before asked, but can you print edible images on wafer paper like you do on frosting sheets and do they go through the printer okay?

Thanks for all your help on this

Yep you can print on them - the wafer paper is more fragile and can easily be ripped. If you look at the gift box cake I just made in my photos - the gift tag on the box was from wafer paper. The paper has a tendency to curl after printing so what I did was took a piece of gumpaste/fondant and attached the wafer paper with some piping gel on top of it.

Works out GREAT because my handing writing on cake is awful.

What are frosting sheets? icon_confused.gif

Does anyone know where I can get a couple photos printed on these things? I don't want to buy a printer just for a couple cakes. THanks.
