I thought it was suppose to. Does only rice paper dissolve? Should I wet it first?

I'm putting it on crusting buttercream.

Any suggestions?

TIA!

I think you're confusing two products.

Rice paper (proper term is wafer paper) does not dissolve.
Icing sheets don't exactly dissove, then "meld" into the icing.

I've used Kopykake frosting sheets, and they don't dissolve in the icing....they indeed "meld" and should look as if it's a part of your cake.

Melding is the better word, or adhering to the cake. Make sure that your icing is moist before adhering.

Thank you all for responding! For some reason, it didn't notify me. I just noticed it today. I didn't really have much luck with getting it to "meld" as you put it. =) I tried moisture, etc. Oh well. =) But I think it turned out okay. This is the link.
