Edible Inks History
Edible ink printing, is the process of creating preprinted images with edible food colors on to various confectionery products such as cookies, cakes, or pastries.
Edible Image® designs can either be preprinted, or created with an
edible printer, a specialty device which transfers an image onto a thin,
edible paper. The paper is made of starches and sugars and printed on
with edible food colors. Some Edible Image® designs have been approved
by the Food and Drug Administration
and carry its Generally Recognized as Safe certification. High quality
images retain color clarity and resist color bleeding, even on high
Edible paper is the paper used in edible ink printing. The first papers of this process used rice paper, while modern versions use frosting sheets. It may be consumed without harsh effects on a normal human digestive system.
Usually, the paper has no flavor and very little texture. However, the paper
dissolves quickly when brought in contact with moist frosting. The end
effect is that the image (usually a photograph) on the paper appears to
be printed on the icing.
While the paper is edible, not all printer inks are edible. Ink that
is not specifically marketed as being edible may be harmful or fatal if
swallowed. Edible toner for laser printers is not currently available.
Some edible inks are powdered, but if they are easily soluble
in water they can also be used as any other edible ink without reducing
quality. Edible paper is used on cakes, cookies, cupcakes, and even
marshmallows (in Africa during the holidays).

the world. That is why contests and baking show competitions are very

Buying your supplies from varoius Marketplaces
Cheap printer ink cartridges can be purchased from many offline
as well as online stores, but before you get into a deal, keep in mind
that not all cartridges are made with higher specification. Some of
these products are of inferior quality and are sold cheap because they
are low in quality whereas, some others are of good quality and found
only at selected stores.
Therefore, it is recommended to purchase wisely after making a
thorough study and research on various sites. Online stores generally
sell good quality products at relatively lower price. Since many
customers are inclined to purchase these types of products, online
retailers can sell them at low discounted prices because of the fact
that customers repeat their purchases every time their printer runs out
of edible ink.
When it comes to purchase ink supplies online, one thing you must
make sure, do not take any quick decisions. Always do a research work on
online sales and discounts. Remember, the online competition is quite
tricky, and finding affordable edible ink cartridges may be a daunting task.
One significant thing is do not bother going to liquidation channels
such as Amazon or Ebay, because there you cannot expect to get the best quality
There is plenty home made ,out of garage " business" offering cheap cartridges actually filled with unsterilized equipment , non FDA approved inks . You DON'T WANT to put your customers or family in such risk !!
Fondant is an excellent cake decorating product
that adds your personal touch to cookies or cupcakes
for special day treats. The smooth finish of fondants will give your dessert a perfect finish that only a professional baker can do. However, it is not the easiest thing to do, but once you get the expertise and proficiency you can utilize it in many different ways for a variety of creative looks you can ideally think of.
Before you begin with applying fondant to your cakes and other items you need to make sure it is completely flat to go well with your decoration. You can use a sharp object, such as, knife to cut any excess portion of the cake and to make the edges round else, the fondant might crack after it dries. Then, using a large spoon full of frosting sheet secure your cake to a plate or cake board so that it remains fixed to its position and allow you to decorate
To prepare fondant for your particular cake decoration, knead it nicely until it becomes soft and feel like clay. Now, using a rolling pin roll the fondant into a thin layer. You can even sprinkle it with cornstarch if it is moisten and stick to your rolling pin. Remember, you have to make the fondant a bit larger than the original piece of cake or cupcake you wish to cover with it and should cover the entire top and sides of the cake.
Once you rolled it out in the correct size, place it on the cakes. You can now continue decorating the cake in any way you choose.
Disclaimer: The information in this article does not represent any particular company’s opinions or suggestions. Edible ink printing should follow the instructions of the manufacturer from whom you buy your edible ink supplies www.ink4cakes.com , and it should be noted that the mixing of edible ink and regular inks should not be done.
There are lots of confusions when it comes to refilling your ink
. Many people try to do refilling at home and they find that
the process to be very messy. If you are not careful then there is the
risk of ink spills and anything that comes nearby will stain. Moreover,
people complained that the cartridge performance is often not as good as normal. If
you are printing only for personal purpose, you would find it possibly good. However, if you are going to print professional photographs on frosting sheets the color difference and the quality is often noticeable.
For such reasons we recommend to obtain spare set of edible ink cartridges
and keep it close to your printer.
