I want to make a rocker cake with leopard print and zebra stripes. I seen a great edible images kit with exactly these prints.
I am used to covering my cakes in fondant, and cutting out each design. But I was excited to see I could use these images on buttercream - would save a ton of work.
My question is -- do edible images look tacky? Are they a little see through when you lay them on the cake? I am reluctant to buy them, but if the cake will look sas good as the one in the picture, I will definitely go tjhis route!
Actually, putting the edible image on fondant works great and looks very good. Just be sure, especially a with zebra prints that where ever you get them from that you have good quality, especially on the blacks. Now, if you are not making it flat, you may want to use 50/50 to give it more elasticity. If you put an image on Sugarveil, it works like fabric...very cool!
