Well, since Christmas is literally right around the corner, you must be busy getting your shopping done and doing some of the food preparation needed. The most important of all is the Christmas cake. For many of us, decorating the Christmas cake is as much as baking it, and a chance to create an eye-catching centerpiece for the Christmas table.
You can now add personal touch of styling and designing on cakes, cookies and cupcakes to flaunt a bit. This you can do using frosting sheets, also known as edible paper and edible ink. This is typically the creamy or floppy topping added to baked goods. Printed frosting sheets are decorated to be placed on top of a layer of frosting. These are made from ingredients such as corn starch and some sugars and generally do not have a distinct taste, so they should not meddle with the flavor of the cake and icing. Frosting sheets allow photos and detailed images to be used to beautify a cake. Now these are available easily thus helping home bakers to avail them and print them from some home computer printers.
Cupcake frosting can also be done with frosting sheets. Designs can be imprinted and carefully outlined to place on top of cupcakes. Photos, text, drawings and other images can be beautifully drawn to enhance the design. When using a home printer with edible paper and ink, you can draw round almost any design on an icing sheet to create a one-of-a-kind cake decoration. This way you can make your Christmas count creating a uniquely individual effect that is sure to become a talking point.
