I love baking!
Unfortunately with my crazy schedule lately and the super hot weather, I haven't had the chance to bake much!

A friend of mine who baked my son's cuppies last month asked me where he could get edible images as he needed to make a portrait cake for his Mom for Mother's Day. Sweet huh? Yes..he is a big chubby guy who has the heart of gold ! That's why I call him TAI KOR :) LOL!!

Have you ever wondered how to use those edible images? I mean how to apply them onto your cakes/cuppies the right way?

I found this article...

Cake Decorating – How To Apply Edible Cake Art

There are many edible cake art images available for cake decorating, that will make your cakes stand alone in excellence. You must follow the directions carefully for best result and ease in application.
Tips to Apply Edible Cake Art:
- Make sure you have clean, dry hands before touching the image. If you are working with a frozen cake, let it thaw a bit before applying the icing. Edible Image(r) cake decorations need a bit of moisture to blend into the icing.
- If the cake is dry, spray it with a light mist of water, brush on light syrup, or add a thin layer of icing before you apply the image so it will stick to the cake. If your cake is moist, don’t add water or moisture to the cake. Too much water will cause the colors to run.
- Once the image is applied, it cannot be removed or moved. Know exactly where you plan to place the image. Using care apply the image to your cake, face up. Once the image has been applied, tap the image down gently with your fingertips. Start from the center of the image and work toward the edges.
- If the image should become moist or hard to remove from the backing, it can be placed in the freezer for a couple of minutes, the image should peel off easily.
- If the image should bubble after it is applied, gently tap and DO NOT RUB the image. If the cake is still frozen after application, it should be placed in the refrigerator to thaw slowly. Avoid exposing the image to ultraviolet light. The image may fade over time, as with any food coloring.
- If the image bubbles during freezing, again you can gently tap the image.
Royal Icing
- Make sure you add a good mist of water over a cake iced with royal icing before you apply the image
Non Dairy Whipped Topping
- When working with this medium, do not add any extra water before you apply the image. Keep the finished cake in the refrigerator to maintain the integrity of the image and the topping.
Poured White Chocolate, or other poured icings
- Apply the image while the icing is wet. Be sure your cake is on a flat surface or the image may slide.
Standard Instruction for Application
- Remove the Edible Image(r) from the sheet just prior to application.
- If there are still images in the bag, reseal it immediately.
- Remove the image from the backing sheet by gently placing it on a table edge, (facing up) and rolling the backing sheet over the table edge. This will loosen the image so that it can be carefully peeled from the backing.
