Rich works for RBC. To kick off a Project, the company ordered some cupcakes with edible images of their logo.
The images were e-mailed to my friend Joy of Baked with Joy. She has a special printer that uses food colouring instead of ink to create images on edible paper. I am so excited...Rich just surprised me with a printer for this purpose. I can't wait to use it. I will now be able to print my own edible images!
For this project, I used scissors to cut out the images. But since then, I watched Ace of Cakes where I saw someone using a pizza cutter to cut out the images. I'll definitely try that next time.
Once the cupcakes fully cooled, I spread vanilla frosting on the first cupcake.
Next, I very gently placed the image on top of the frosting. The frosting is the glue that adheres the image to the cupcake.
After that, I used a star tip to pipe a golden yellow frosting border around the image.
The border hides all of the original frosting as well as the edges of the image.
I also made some white sugar circles out of royal icing and piped some of the project names on other cupcakes.
Chillin' in the fridge ready for delivery.
