Hi,

I know that some of you use rice paper to print script or message on and apply to a gumpaste plaque, could you please tell me the technique for that and if there is any special way in which to do it?

Thanks!

You should just be able to write on the plaque with an edible marker or with edible "paint" (coloring mixed with vodka or vanilla or lemon extract)

There is a tutorial to make a gumpaste plaque:

Not to hi-jack your post, but I was wondering the same thing. I mean like when you have a lot of words to put in a small area (like a poem). I have a cake coming up next month for the relay for life cancer cake auction, and I want to affix the footprints in the sand poem to a plaque. I thought about an edible image, but I don't have the printer and I don't know if out local walmart does them (I know some do). I want it to be perfect, and I just don't think I could write all of that and have it look good. So any suggestions. Maybe that is kind of what the original poster was wondering also. I don't know.

You can order images off the internet if Walmart doesnt sell them.

Usually Walmart will sell them to you. It's about 5.00 plus tax.
Meijers - not so much.

Else print the words on computer paper. (Take whatever food safety precautions you want. e.g. trace on parchment paper first with an edible marker) Get an edible marker and trace the words onto the rice paper.

Works like a charm.

Yes. Buttercream doesn't melt the rice paper.

Would you consider the following ...
1.- print the poem in the computer
2.- reduce it to make it as small as you need it
3.- laminated it and put it in the gumpaste plaque

It is just an idea icon_smile.gif

I really thought about doing the whole dino in fondant and gumpaste Icouldjust take the rice paper and trace my design onto it then put it on fondant that is shaped like the dino and color it in or paint it, I think that might work? Sorry i just hijacked someone elses post, i had one on here earier and thought this was mine icon_redface.gif

the great thing about rice paper is that you can kind of see through it.

For the "penguins emblem" on this penguin I used rice paper and just traced it with edible markers and cut it out and affixed it to the shirt of the penguin.

For the book cake, I put the rice paper over some lined paper (to keep everything straight) and wrote with an edible marker.........granted, the writing was freehand (but only because I didn't have ink in my printer or I would have printed it out so it was properly spaced and then I could have traced the writing)

but either way, it's pretty easy........get some edible markers!

Hi guys.... i know of someone who uses some sheet on her cakes to write name and mesgs....
n once u eat that part feels like a jelly like texture...  it cant be anyting else but rice paper right?

Also the rice paper we get here is textured... the ones in chinese store.. is it the same or m mistaken ??

sixbittersweets Posted 24 Jan 2013 , 12:48am

Do you mean the summer roll wrappers in the Chinese store that are round?  If so, those are DEFINITELY not the type of rice paper being used here. 

DeliciousDesserts Posted 24 Jan 2013 , 12:52am

When I am putting something on a plaque, I use the edible image sheets.  I use rice paper for "paper" like a birthday card for a cake or the tag on a present.

 

I can absolutely see using rice paper just wanted to offer other options.
