Forgive me for asking something that has been asked before, but search is going wonky on me.
I'm getting an edible image sheet made at our local grocery store, $8.00 a sheet.
My question is, how long can I wait after getting it to put on the cake? Will it melt, so to speak?
Also, once I put it on the cake, will I be able to deliver it the next day?
Thanks for answering a newbie's silly questions!
No it won't melt as long as you don't keep it in the sunshine. You can put it on the cake and deliver the next day. The stuff is really weird almost like a fondant rice paper...tastes ok...but doesn't go bad or need to be refrigerated either...
Hi, lchris: They should put the image in a sealed envelope for you. I would suggest keeping the image in the envelope until the moment you put it onto the cake. The image is to be put on a freshly frosted cake (if your cake has crusted, you can spritz a little water on the cake where you plan to put the image). The image will-over time-melt into the frosting. Put the finished cake in a box to keep it from drying out. Yes, you can deliver the cake the next day. If the image wants to curl at the edge, you can put a shell border (#14 or 16 tip) around the image at the edge to weigh it down. Hope this helps. JoJo
Thanks for the reply ladies.
I just wanted to be sure it wouldn't disappear or melt into the frosting before I deliver it.
