Hi All,
I am new to cakes, and just start using fondont. So far I made two fondont cakes, and turned out well.

My hubby birthday is coming and I want to make a ping pong table. I am not sure what shoud I used to make net out of so it can be stand on the cake?

Also, Can anyone tell me how they edible print. I need to make a cake for my Son's birthday and I want to make playing cards. Should I print? or where should I get the print out? Anyhelp will be appreciated.
Thankss

Since you are a newbie you probably don't want to invest in 'Sugar Viel" so I suggest making the net out of royal icing. Just make a length of lattice . It iwll be delicate so make a couple incase of breakage.
For edible prints, again one would need to invest in a special printer that uses food coloring instead of ink.

There are some places that might have such a printer that would make the pic for you. Sorry, I can't point you to any certain one since we have no idea where (in the world) you live. It can be done by mail.

WHile we sell images, we do have several customers that sell them too. If you are interested, email me your zip code and I can see if I have a customer who prints in your area.

There is a "homemade" version fo sugarveil recipe
egg whites

1Tbsp Cream of Tartar
2lbs Powder Sugar
1 pkg Gelatin (dissolved in a little bit of water)
2 cups marshmallows (melted)

I mixed the first 3 ingredients together for 10 minutes as if making royal........then added the Gelatin, then the Marshmellows..........beat until it is stiff enough to pipe ( maybe 5 more minutes or so)

There is a thread on it here: http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=32371&postdays=0&postorder=asc&&start=0

I have my local cake supply print my edible images. Sometimes they come out prettier than others depending on the icing sheet brand and how true their colors are that day but it wuold be fine for something like playing cards. They charge $12 for an 8X12 sheet. Since I only do this a couple of times a year it's not worth investing in my own printer...but I dream of doing so one dayicon_smile.gif
