I thought I knew how but mine are not turning out so great. I have all the equipment. I thought the frosting sheet would sort of melt into the gumpaste when I laid it on but it just looks like i laid a piece of paper on there. I need step by step instructions please and tips for cutting it out without messing up the ink.
Oh and if anyone knows where I can find a picture of Dora that isn't pixelated that would be awesome too!
Print the image out, put it on dampened gumpaste and then cut it with an exacto knife.
I'd be interested in the answer too. Whenever I've used the images on fondant, I can see the paper on it.
There are tons of images on the internet of Dora. I googled dora the explorer images and up came lots.
The images will be pixelated if you've enlarged them a lot.
how thin should the gumpaste be?
I made a monogram plaque on my baptism cake (top row, 5th cake).
When I applied my edible image to my piece of gumpaste, it just kinda stuck. I had not put it on a dried piece, but a fresh piece. If it was dry, I would've taken a damp paper towel just lightly kinda wiped over the gumpaste to get some sort of dampness.
I then put a cutter lightly on it to get my line then cut it with an exacto knife.
I also made a cowboy on page 2.
