I'm getting used to working with Fondant and still practicing icon_biggrin.gif. Have anyone tried the Sugar Sheets? Do they work the same as Fondant? I would love to use cut out letters with the sugar sheets (because I don't like my handwriting) rather than fondant because most people that have tried it does not like the taste. If I put on the sugar sheet letters the night before, and let sit in room tempature, will it be okay? Will putting the cake in the fridge make the color "melt" onto the buttercream? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. thumbs_up.gif

I'm not sure--what are sugar sheets?? Do you mean edible wafer paper?? And yes, edible paper would work--it would melt, but not bleed,

I believe the sugar sheets she is talking about are the new sugar sheets from Wilton. They work great and you can dust them with petal dusts. They taste great, almost like sugar veil.

@ Jeannem, that was the word I was looking for "bleed" onto the buttercrem, but that is good to know that it will not.

@Evelyn, yes, that is exactly what I'm talking about, the Wilton sugar sheets. Thanks for the suggestion! Keeping the cake at room tempature (or slightly cooler if I have my air on) should not be a problem right? (I will prepare the cake in the evening and delivering the next day).

I bought the sugar sheets for the first time last night. They are pretty much exactly like the edible sheets you use for printing with an edible ink printer. I actually used them in my Cricut and it worked! Loved it!

I actually saw these in Michael's last night. They come in different colors and some had the damask print upon them. Can't wait to try them out!

They actually have some letters already cut out in the Wilton sugar sheets. icon_smile.gif

Thanks everyone! I can't wait to try it. I was waiting until I heard feedback on it, and it sounds worth it. I did see the letters already cut out, which I will keep that in mind, but they only had black, and the person wants blue letters.

I've heard Wilton's sugar sheets are costly. Would it be less expensive to buy edible sheets from another source?

Have any of you used them in the Cricut or other cutting machine?

Yes, I posted earlier that I used them in the Cricut - some smaller items jammed it up but overall it was easy to use with it and it came out beautifully. You only get 1 sheet in the Wilton package for between $3-4, which I thought was ridculous. I didn't realize they were the same as the edible frosting sheets you can buy in a package of 24 for around $28. . . so, yes, it's MUCH more economical to buy the packs of frosting sheets (I ordered from kopykake . com)

I purchased frosting sheets from icingimages and they are a dream to work with. I scanned a scrapbook paper and printed it onto sheet before cutting out my letters and it came out great. I'll be using the letters ona cake next week. No way am I paying $4 a sheet!

Mamasan, I posted a picture of the cake I did the sugar sheet letters for; it's in my pictures (the only one - I've never bothered posting my own pictures before! LOL)

Very cool! I'd be interested in trying this too, just not at 4 bucks a sheet... icon_eek.gif
