AHi everyone

I had some jersey's printed as edible images and I am trying to peel and place them onto sugar paste as side cake touches.

I have done everything but these puppies don't want to budge!

I have put them in the freezer, rubbed them on a corner of a countertop, used a blow dryer to dry them out, nothing is working! They will not peel off and are tearing.

I had other images printed on half of the sheet so I don't believe it is the icing sheet. Could it be the strong colour that is causing this?

Does anyone have any further tips?

Thank you, thank you!

I have an small offset spatula that helps me get off stubborn images.    My favorite one for this is actually a small round offset...but try any one you have.

AThanks so much for your reply. I tried that as well and the image just tears. It's so strange as the other sheets ingot from the same order are fine.

Pretty frustrating!

Thanks again!
