I hope someone can respond with a successful solution quickly.
I am trying to apply the edible image to my fondant discs to place on top of cupcakes. However, I am unable to remove them from the sheet the came on. I tried freezing them (already 1 1/2 hours), then wiggling them to free them loose. Tried to lift them with my finger nail...that only destroyed the edges. The image frosting is incredibly thin.
I take my EI and use my hair dryer on high and run it across the front of the image for about 30 seconds. Then blow the hair dryer across the back of the image (on the paper). Then take the EI and place up against a mirror or window with the backing sheet against the mirror/glass. This cools the image down quickly. Then I remove the image from the backing. This is the way I remove my EI when it's very humid or the EI is saturated with ink if there is a lot of dark ink used in the printing. If it's a smaller partial sheet, I use the dryer less. HTH
When freezing the brand, you only want to put it in for no more then a minute. What brand are you having this much trouble with?
I often have trouble.. I use a thin sculpting blade and run it under edible image "carefully" . I have to do this with all my kopykake 2" & 3" circles.. ..
