I recently used an edible image printed on wafer paper and applied it to the sugar bottle with piping gel, but the wafer paper was kinda brittle. I wasn't thrilled with it. I was just wondering what other people used...

Would frosting sheets work? Do they need to be applied to a thin layer of fondant and then put on the bottle or can they be used by themselves?

I use wafer paper, but I use a tiny bit of corn syrup to attach it. There is a photo of a bottle cake in my photos that I used this method on.

If you had an edible image printer you could copy it onto the sheet then just peel and apply, but with it being copyrighted for the beer company a grocery store wouldn't do it. That's how I would though.

I've been playing with frosting sheets alot lately. I think you could apply it directly to the bottle without any problems at all.

ttehn4..................wow those look good. I didn't know you could use waffer paper, I thought it was too thick. Learned something here again.

tthan4--yours DO look really good--didn't you find the wafer paper to be kinda brittle? Maybe my wafer paper is just old...

You need to add some steam vapor in order for your rice paper to be flexible. Just a little exposure while you carefully shape the paper. You don't want it to wilt.

I didnt use any water or steam. I used a small amount of corn syrup on the back of the wafer paper. Once the corn syrup was applied and it was shaped to the bottle I didnt have any problem at all with it. I have made the bottle cake several times this way and it always works.
