O.K. So I made a sheet cake for a wedding shower. I decided to do an edible image the same as the gift card. Took the card to the grocery store & got an edible image made.Buttercreamed the cake,placed the image on the cake & finished decorating. Looked amazing. One of my best cakes yet.
Next morning, got up to find lots of bubbles under the image. I had smoothed it well (or so I thought),using a fondant smoother,after placing it on the cake. I tried to smooth out the bubbles & flatten them,but the image was now soft & it tore. I could have cried. How do I avoid this happening in the future? By the way,if I had done the cake in fondant,how would I attach the image to the cake?
