I am making a wedding cake for my cousin and was wondering. I would like to use stamps to transfer images to the cake and i read about rice paper. My question is when applying the image using rice paper to the side of a cake and using corn syrup or shortening to soften the paper do I apply it to the side with the image or the opposite side? Also does the paper stay on or do i remove it? and lastly Where do I find the rice paper?

Are you trying to transfer the image or are you just putting the image on the rice paper and adhering it to the cake? If you were trying to transfer the image I am not sure how that is done but I probably would use piping gel instead of the corn syrup. Rice paper is edible so I am thinking that you wouldn't want to remove it. I would do a google search to see where rice paper can be purchased as the one place I know would get blocked if I were to tell you.
