Decorating with Cake Ink to Showcase your Culinary Masterpiece

Cakes are one of the things that have not seemed to change much over the centuries people have been making them, but today they have been modified. Presently, companies have developed a special kind of Cake Ink, also called Edible Inks, which are use to decorate a cake with pattern, image or drawing of your choice. This is created with edible ink cartridge and inkjet printers or with edible ink pens and it is so easy that even home bakers can do it as per their choice.

The cake ink cartridges are commercially available, and many online suppliers sell a complete range of bakery decorating items including, cake ink, edible ink cartridge, eatable paper or frosting sheets. Some suppliers offer sets of edible ink sets with special printers, but generally, you can also use new inkjet or bubble printers. The most significant thing to remember is that a printer that uses edible ink cannot be used for regular ink. The reason is that regular printer ink can be harmful if ingested. So, when you use a printer for your cake decoration, make sure that the printer you get has never been used before for regular printing and will never be used thereafter for anything other than edible ink prints.

When you have got cake ink and the printer, you should get the edible paper. This paper is made from corn starch or icing and dissolves when in contact with a cake’s icing, making the images and photos appear as part of the icing. With that, you have a photo cake or detailed drawing decorating your cakes and cookies. With the holidays coming up it’s a great time to create memorable, impressive cake and wow your friends and families.
