I printed off this edible image for a puck cake I was doing for a customer.As you can see in the picture it has purple splotches that won't go away and I smoothed it completely...I used piping gel thinned down on the back to adhere it.I ended up ripping it off and doing it wih icing but I am a little annoyed...
Can someone explain why this happened...are you not supposed to put it on colored icing?
Looks like it wasn't smoothed down and has air bubbles under it. I've never used piping gel just a ver fine mist of water.
I did smooth it out..It is almost like the base color (Purple) is separating from the black icing.
If it's seperating it isn't stuck to the icing well enough. It should meld into the icing and it needs moisture to do that.
Hmmm..Okay...I used piping gel with water added...it was quite runny..Then I painted it on the back of the image and flipped it over and on...What should I have done?
If you're using BC spray a fine mist of water on top of the cake. If it's fondant use a damp paper towel and wipt it across the top.
I guess I will have to try it again...I don't use a crusting BC ..I use thw WBH recipe and if you touch it...it smears...I guess it is just trial and error but I am mad that I wasted a EI paper...
If you aren't using a crusting bc you shouldn't need anything to adhere it.
I agree with Tiggy....moisture makes it stick!
