I only heard of cake decoupage 2 days ago, and was hoping to learn more about it... Thank you so very much for your lovely tutorial. Your cake is simply amazing.
Where to we find this beautiful paper, in Australia we only seem to be able to get solid colors, do we need a edible printing machine??
Do you think this would work on either modelling chocolate (or a firmed ganache), or on royal iced cookies?
Becs FF, I do have a edible printer, but it is not necessary your local cake decorating shops should be able to print some images for you. You could goggle images/ prints that you like and save them to a jump drive or directly email to your cake shop and have them print them out. Only suggestion is if your are selling your cakes be sure to get permission from the person who designed the print.
SweetNeddy, I have not tried this technique on modeling chocolate but it would work on ganache, but I would suggest white chocolate ganache, the darkness of the chocolate may show through the edible image and change the desired look. Do post your pictures using modeling chocolate I would love to see what you create!
Thank you, Blunina!
Thank you, Yetunde66!
Can you print on edible rice paper as well?
Fabulous thank you for sharing. Can't wait to try it out x
Yes, however you would have to use some moisture such as water, vodka, piping gel or even crisco to adhere the icing sheets to the ganash or modeling chocolate.

To avoid worrying about all the permissions, if you have an edible printer Icing Images has a product called iDesigns which gives you access to over 1600 different images that are licensed for edible use. This way you never have to worry about copywritten images and all the images are catagorized for your convenience.
On thicker sheets, such as the premium sheets, this would work fine with darker chocolates.
You can, however most people end up pealing the rice paper away before eating it as it is tougher and does not taste as good as icing sheets.
Hi! I have try to print on my wafer paper and the colors is not bright. What do you suggest?
Why your color in your wafer paper look soo brightt? My printer are new. Full of edible tint. Its a canonn.... and the photo never have instense color... im doing something wrong?
Hi gigcruz, I don't think you are doing anything wrong. It maybe the image that you chose to use? I chose a really vibrant watercolor and this is the way it printed out I did not do anything different to my printer, it may even be because it's a direct contrast to the black of the other two tiers. You'll notice that my other wafer paper is not as bright on my tutorial cake, the image colors were not as vibrant, but that is just the image colors themselves nothing to do with the printer.
Although I did notice that when I print on wafer paper it is even brighter sorry I wasn't much help.
brilliant. Thanks for sharing
