I’ve been experimenting with combining edible prints with cookies lately. Here’s a sneak peak at some of my successful attempts. Warning: These cookies are a bit racy, and may give a new meaning to Wednesday (today) being “hump day.” *wink*
For these bustier cookies, I used blue polka dot, leopard print, and pink polka dot edible prints from my PhotoFrost printing system. The rest of the decorations were done with royal icing.
Stay tuned for more edible print cookies coming soon!
Ok, I decorated this cake for Ms. Debbie’s Sugar Art back in June, but I’ve been saving it. I wanted to show it to you right before the Oscar Awards or something like that. But, did you know that’s in March?! I just can’t wait anymore!
So here is a huge cake we made for a Hollywood-themed Sweet 16 birthday party. The party was held at the Hippodrome Theater in Gainesville so the setting was perfect!
For the cake, they requested large film reels topped with a director’s clapboard:
Around each of the film reels, we attached edible photos of the birthday girl from the first 16 years of her life. Her mom gave us school photos, prom photos, dance photos, simple everyday photos, etc. They were great!
The clapboard was made of cardboard and completely covered with fondant. Then, I hand-piped the letters using yellow royal icing.
I love this cake. It would have been better to wait until the Oscars, right? Hm, Oh well. I’m just not that patient…
Here is a dummy cake we made for the show room months ago. I know, you’re probably asking yourself why I’m just getting around to showing it to you if we made it months ago. Well, we were waiting for the cake to make its debut at the Gainesville Bridal Expo last Sunday! A baby shower cake at a bridal expo? Yup! Those girls have the wedding at the top of their to-do list, but babies are always at the back of their mind. And who doesn’t love to look at cute baby shower cakes anyway?
This cake was iced in buttercream and wrapped with ribbon and a Luck’s Designer Print Edible Image. It’s an image printed on edible paper!
Then, I made some fondant buttons and scattered those around the cake. Get it, cute as a button?
And we topped the cake with some yellow baby booties.
The entire cake was mounted on a white pedestal, which I think really enhances both the size and appearance of the cake. And I decorated a few cupcakes to show that we can use the edible image prints in that way too!
