I have to make an edible image cake, in the form of a credit card.
I have made earlier a similar cake but had to pipe very fine butter cream lines on the edges, which was the hardest part. (Here's the link with the image http://cakecentral.com/t/754440/credit-card-cake, incase you can't see the image below)
Is there any other option apart from fondant as the image does not really blend in well, and I have pipe the borders. Should I frost the cake with butter cream or royal icing or anything else, instead of covering it with fondant and then applying the iamge? This credit card is in royal blue colour.
Thanks a lot !!
ADo you have a silhouette or circuit? They are awesome for cutting letters even small ones. I cut them from the icing cutter sheets from Icon Images.
Moisture is the key to merging. If your images are not merging well on fondant, then add more moisture to the fondant, buttercream or any other frosting you want to use. Icing Sheets will merge on anything as long as it has moisture.
