Thanks everyone! So glad you are all enjoying the tutorial! :)
Thank you for the tutorial. My son-in-law is in the Air Natioal Guard and is being deployed. I want to make him one for is deployment party. What did you use to copy the design onto the edible paper?
How do you get the edible image off the backing paper? I have yet been able to do so, just getting torn pieces at a time. Thank you & thank your husband for his service.
"...How do you get the edible image off the backing paper? I have yet been able to do so, just getting torn pieces at a time..."
This happens to me when the paper has begun to dry out. I find keeping the edible paper sealed in airtight and light proof bags or containers it vital to keeping it flexible and not brittle. Inside a zip lock bag in a little cardboard box works well, leave it there until the last moment you need it.
If that doesn't work maybe the paper you are using is too thin/poor quailty. I like the paper from icing images although it's more expensive.
One more tip: if you are cutting shapes out sometimes it's easier to remove the backing paper first then cut with super dry hands (I wear gloves). Spreading a thin layer of chocolate over the back of small cut images also helps them remain perfect during construction.
Hi Trixie05, I agree with EmmaHols. :) The only time I have had this issue was if the image was dry.
CasperCakeCreations, I got a ACU (that is the name of the pattern) bandana at our local PX and used it in the printer. You can also use an old uniform, you just want to make sure you don't have something with a seam because the seem will be copied onto your image. I actually liked the seam/fold on some that I did. I felt like it added character. You can see the promotion cakes I have done on my Facebook page, they have a seam/fold if you look closely.
I hope this helps! :)
Thanks! I just bought an edible print system, so this comes just in time for me....
jayhawkcake, Thank you very much for the information, I can't wait to try my hand at this. Will you PM me your page name on Facebook? Thanks :)
I love it can we also do this over ganache or crusting buttercream? Also how were you able to bake such a tall cake in one pan?
