Frosting sheets are for printing edible images on that you apply on the top of cakes ... if memory serves me correctly, I ordered mine from KopyKakes... you have to have a designated printer that you use ONLY and exclusively with edible ink to print on these frosting sheets ...

you can read more about it with this link icon_smile.gif

Note: I do not advise buying the "package" set ups for edible images.. they cost way too much .. buy a printer (Canon - I got mine from Amazon) and the frosting sheets.. if you have a scanner, you can use it to scan images to put on the frosting sheets .. if you don't have a scanner, a cheap one will probably work fine and would be all you'd need icon_smile.gif
