1. What is wafer paper?

Wafer paper is a thin, edible paper made from potato or rice starch. It is commonly used in cake decorating as a medium for creating edible decorations like flowers, cake toppers, and other designs. 

Wafer paper is versatile and easy to work with, making it popular among bakers and decorators. Plus, it is completely safe to eat and can add an extra layer of texture and flavor to your desserts.

2. How do I choose an image for my cake topper?

When choosing an image for your cake topper, consider your event's occasion and theme. Look for high-resolution images that are clear and bright, and make sure the image is appropriate for all ages. If creating a custom design, consider incorporating personal touches like names or dates. 

Remember that the image should fit the size and shape of your cake topper, so be sure to measure carefully before ordering or printing.

3. Can I use any type of frosting for my cake topper?

No, it is not recommended to use any frosting. Instead, use a smooth frosting or icing such as buttercream, fondant, or ganache. Avoid using whipped cream or other soft frostings that may cause the topper to become soggy or lose shape.

It is also important to ensure the frosting is completely dry and set before applying the topper to avoid damage or smudging.

4. Can edible images be customized?

Absolutely! Edible images can be customized to include any design, logo, or photo you choose. Customizing your edible image is a great way to add a personal touch to your cake or dessert and make it truly unique.

At Icinginks, you get various options to personalize your edible images, from uploading your image to selecting a range of pre-made designs. Explore our website to know more!
