Are the frosting sheets thin, like, clear?

I am making cookies and each will be a different color but the logo will be one. I am getting my sheets from Walmart. Any help is appreciated!

OMG, I just got them for the first time too the other day! They were white and thicker than I thought they would be. Not clear at all.

Darn! Thanks for letting me know. Either I will have to get a little more creative or see if they can print the sheet in a particular color.

Thanks again and you do a great job on your cookies!

Did you see the ones I did it on? They were the National Library Workers Day ones. I got them done at WalMart and was a little disappointed in how fuzzy the image was. However, it was a copy of a copy and made on frosting so I guess I shouldn't be too picky, lol.

And thanks for the compliment on my cookies! It's always nice to hear. I still need to practice a lot, but as everyone says, we're our worst critic.

I think that they look fantastic! We are our own worst critic. I think thatI am really hard on myself. I made my cookies this weekend but I was not able to get the sheets from Walmart because they felt that they may get sued. I actually gave the cookies to the creator of the product I put the image on. There was not a trade mark on the image I gave to them. Kind of wondering if I should have put a think outline around the image to keep the edges down. They are now in my photos.

You are welcome for the compliment as you deserve it. I know that I need to practice more. As the saying goes "practice make perfect!"

Thanks again for your help!

They turned out really well! I like the logo, glad you were able to get it to match the frosting colors. Nice work!

When I tried this, my printer ran really slow. The sheets were from Kopykake and the printer is an Epson. Is that normal, and what kind of printers to you guys use?

I also have the Epson printer and i purchased the frosting sheets from printer runs slow but i think that maybe thats just the Epson printers because I also have a Canon printer and it runs pretty fast.

I too have an Epson and use KopyKake's sheets. I haven't really noticed it runs slow. I had a Canon and when that one died on me, I found the Epson for a terrific price and I really love it so far!thumbs_up.gif

I plan to purchase one soon. Since doing the nail polish cookies I have had a few more people asking about doing cookies for them with the edible image. I would rather do it from home than have to pay for the sheets else where it will be a worthy investment. Thanks for sharing!

I have also printed on the "thick, white, sugar sheet" then cut out the logo, paper doll style. That worked.

I love those nail polish cookies. How did you get the backround of each of those colors? Did you have to print the backround?

sugaah-the sheets were the "thick, white sugar sheet". i did the same thing you did. i wish that they were a little thinner but it worked out fine.

luv2bake6 - thank you! i tried to match each logo background to a polish color before printing it out. once they were printed on the frosting sheet they kind of lightened up. but it still worked on the icing once applied. i love your cookie pop with the edible image on it! i may do something like that for an up coming baby shower! thanks!

Hi guys - After reading through your messages, I just had to ask; where do you get thin sugar sheets from?

I was just GIVEN (what a doll!) a Canon Pixma iP600D. He said it was given to him pretty new 2 months ago, and he just doesn't have time to use it (same reason the original buyer gave it to HIM!). He did say I needed toner and the sheets for it. I figured it's a small price for getting it "free"!! So... any help/guidance would be greatly appreciated! I honestly don't think I'll use it enough to be worthwhile for me. I've only used 4 images in the last 3 years.......

If I don't get around to using it soon, I may just wind up giving it away also icon_smile.gif

Thanks! Shannell

sweeteecakes, thanks for your compliment. Those lollies on for a baby shower would be perfect. I do them with chocolate as well but i like the cookies better. Good luck!!
