Edible FROSTING SHEET INSTRUCTIONS
DO NOT REFRIGERATE. This may dry out the topper and cause it to crack. Simply keep the topper stored flat in the provided zip-lock bag at room temperature.
BEFORE YOU START: Images are printed on an actual layer of icing. The icing is held together by a backing sheet that you will remove before applying the image to your cake. Keep your frosting sheet in its original sealed bag until you are ready to use. They do not need refrigeration! Keep the image at room temperature, out of any direct light. Shelf life of the frosting sheet is about 12 months. THE SHEET ONLY HAS 1 (ONE) PLASTIC BACKING. ONCE THIS BACKING IS REMOVED, YOUR TOPPER IS READY TO APPLY.
YOU CAN USE EDIBLE FROSTING SHEETS ON:
Butter cream – Frosting sheets are best if placed on a butter-cream type frosting.
Whipped Cream – Because of the high water content in whipped cream, you should apply the edible image as close to serving time as possible.
Any type of frosting that has very high moisture content will tend to cause bleeding. A thin coating of butter-cream can be added where the image is to be placed to avoid bleeding/fading.
Ice Cream Cake – Mist the surface of the ice cream with milk or let soften a bit before applying the edible image.
Fondant – Using a brush apply water where your image will be placed. Water outside the image area will leave a mark on your fondant.
Cookies – There are several ways to adorn decals to cookies. Regular icing, frosting, royal icing, or corn syrup thinned with a little water will adhere the image to most cookies.
Oreo Cookies – Apply corn syrup thinned with a bit of water to the chocolate cookie and place the edible image on top.
Hard candy lollipops – Lightly coat the lollipop with corn syrup thinned with a little water, apply the image on top.
Chocolate – Corn syrup, thinned with a little water, applied to the bar works well or heat the chocolate with a hair dryer for about 20 seconds. Apply the edible image on top.
