How do I apply an edible fondant icing print ?

Edible icing prints can make a difference to your cake. They create a personal unique design and give that wow factor!

Storing your prints

It is very important that the edible icing prints are stored in the packaging they arrive in. This will prevent them drying out and the printed edible image deteriorating.

Ensure the edible print is stored on a flat surface away from excessive heat and humidity.

How to apply

Printed cake toppers will work on most cakes but the best results are achieved when used on smooth, fondant icing.

Before applying your edible print you’ll need to ensure your icing is slightly moist. The best way to achieve this without over dampening your cake is to spray a fine mist of water onto the surface of your cake before applying your cake topper.

If you need to trim the images to size (as shown on the pictured cake), use scissors or a craft knife before peeling away the backing paper. 

Next, carefully remove the backing from your icing sheet.  The backing should easily remove with a palette knife or cake slice.

At this stage it’s important you don’t touch the edible printing on your cake topper with wet hands or the ink will run!

Carefully place your edible print in the desired position on your cake and press down gently.

and that is it!
