A great cake make any event, whether it's a birthday, wedding or anniversary. But, you can make that cake even more special by using edible cake toppers. Edible cake toppers are pictures made from edible ink and icing that can be placed on top of a cake. Designs include cartoon characters, film stars or even personal photographs. So, where to start?
Pick Out the Right Edible Cake Icing for your Event
The first step will be to find edible cake icing that will look great for the event. There is a wide range, with options that are suitable for a variety of occasions. Custom photos and children's characters are always popular choices.
Buy a Cake or Make your Own
If you are a skilled baker, you can handle this yourself. Those who aren't so good in the kitchen might be better off leaving it to a professional. You can opt for almost any kind of cake, but make sure that it will be the right size for your edible cake topper. If necessary, you may be able to cut the cake or the topper to size.
Ice your Cake
You will need to ice your cake before you can apply your picture. Almost any edible cake icing will do, but it is best to use light colours, as cake toppers tend to be thin and may get lost on dark icing.
Put your Edible Cake Topper in Place
When your cake is ready to go, carefully take the backing sheet off your cake topper. If you are having problems, allow it to dry out a little beforehand. Once the backing has been removed, slowly put the topper in place and smooth the edges. Allow the cake to sit, while the icing blends in with the topper. Time to serve!
