I just bought two packs of icing sheets for printing of edible images. It has become so difficult to peel it off. It cracks when I try to. Ihave tried using a knife to lift it but it still has problems. When I opened the pack initially it was so easy to lift it. I keep it secured in a cupboard that is rarely opened.
Please has anyone experienced this problem, and how did you solve it?Thanks for any useful information icon_cry.gif .

I spend the same, he goes on a hot blower for 10 seconds and take off the sheet foil. Good job

I have read where someone recommends putting the sheet in the freezer for just a few minutes and then the backing comes right off. I haven't tried that yet. I did have a problem with one of mine sticking before but I thought it was because I had cut the sheet in half for a smaller image after it was printed. I trimmed it all around the picture before I tried peeling the sheet off and it did stick.

I use the freezer trick - it doesn't take long so you need to not forget about it - if it stays in too long it gets frozen(hard) and can crack/break on you - just needs to be in long enough to get a chill!

Hi, I had the same problem so I called and they said to put it in the freezer for at least 10 seconds and it should slide off, if it doesn't happen on the first try do it again. Hope this helps.
