I haven't used the wafer paper but was going to give it a try unless it really doesn't melt into the icing. I got icing sheets from Sam's Club (from kopykake) and they melt into the icing really nicely and cuts with no problems.

DOES SAMS SELL THEM OR DID U HAVE TO CONVIENCE THE PEOPLE IN THE BAKE SHOP TO SELL U A FEW SHEETS? I HAD THE HARDEST TIME TRYING TO FIND THE RIGHT PAPER. SO WAS I SUPPOSE TO LEAVE IT ON THE CAKE FOR A PERIOD OF TIME BEFORE SERVING?

I just want to make sure I am understanding this. You can buy the food coloring ink and the wafer paper and use a regular printer? It doesn't have to be the kopykake or something marketed just for edible images?

those of you that have the epson nx400, all in one, can it be used without a computer? id like one that is free standing and not connected to a computer.

You need more moisture in your frosting. Either moisten up your recipe or spray the frosted cake with a mist of water prior to applying your image.
