@icingimages ‍ , @costumeczar ‍ and anyone -   looking for a vendor to make a print  out of few lines of white text on transparent wafer paper, if such thing exists, or an advice on how to achieve a similar effect (once on cake, the letters should be visible against darker background fondant color, but the paper - not so much)

That's a tall request...I'd think your best bet would be to print out a dark piece of paper or icing sheet with white lettering on it. I don't think you can get anything that's going to look transparent, so camouflage is your best bet. Or cut the letters out with gumpaste and just put them o the dark background, that's probably what I would end up doing.

Thank you. I thought this was a tricky idea. Hmm. Need to try different ways i guess, see what the better substitute idea would be.

i mean they make clear rice paper but the print would probably dissolve it -- they used to wrap candy in it and you could eat the whole shebang -- that's the only way i've seen/eaten it --

you could pipe white text --

then a pure hail mary:

you could test gelatin sheets -- they are clear as in see through but a little yellowish and come in different strengths
