All the new rage, edible images are becoming even more popular as our bakery allows customers to choose to add this customized detail to both cakes and cupcakes. There are many options to the designs we can create for your party and we’d love to make it extra special with a replicated photo for that special someone.
Edible images have been around for a while are a sure way to make an impression on the guests at your next party. Typically placed on sheet cakes, these extra designs are perfect for any square or circle cake and can be cut to any shape. Typically printed on a 8”x10” piece of edible sugar paper, this topper is a perfect addition to our delicious cakes.
More recently, we’ve printed edible images to be toppers on cupcakes. These “disk” like wafers sit comfortable on top of our fluffy buttercream and garnishes. They are typically presented as photos or logos for anniversaries or corporate events.
We’ve yet to met anyone to turn down one of our buttery sugar cookies, and many of our corporate clients in Columbus, Ohio request these treats to special executive meetings or events. These are also a great favor/treat to pass out at conventions with your company logo – everyone will remember your name after eating a tasty treat.
If you’ve still gone without trying a dessert with an edible image, here’s a little more detail about what to expect in terms of texture and flavor.
Many customers claim there is no taste to an edible image. The image itself is printed using a specialized printer which only is for edible use, and has edible ink cartridges which are etched onto a edible paper – commonly known as sugar sheets. These pages are typically made up of various sugars and were once produced from rice paper.
As the panels are being printed, they are stiffer in consistency but turn soft and almost have no texture after being applied to buttercream. The icing helps moisturize the paper giving it a seamless look, as if it was painted directly on top of the cake.
If your cake is covered in fondant, the edible image will keep most of its original texture, but is very pliable and can be molded around sharp edges and smooth corners.
