Hi all I don't mean to sound rushed or panicked but I am about to lose it. I'm doing a confirmation cake that is due at 2:30 and I have to put an edible photo on it. Well my hubby but the edible photo in the fridge and it has been in there for about a week. I took it out today and let it come to room temp and it wont come off of the paper. It just is like cracking in feels kind of soft. What can I do to save the pic. I dont have another edible photo and I dont have the original to take it to the shop to have it printed. Help please!!! Can it be saved?

Karema-send a shout out to your caker friends on Facebook. I saw several of them on there.

I'm sure I'm to late, but was the pic in a sealed bag? It doesn't sound like it and it's probably just dried out? Hmmmm, not sure what to tell you. If you could have cut around it, you might leave it on the backing and just tell them what happened??

There have been times when my EI has started cracking and I put it in the freezer for about 15 seconds. It hardens and then you can peel the EI right off.
I hope this finds you in time!!

I know I am late but I always put my EI's in the freezer for about a minute and then they pop right off and I lay it right on the cake. I have never had any troubles doing it that way.
