Avoiding the Fustrating Roller Marks on Edible Sheets
Canon printers originally weren't built for edible printing on icing sheets,
they are made with very tiny rollers that you can see if you look closely at the upper ceiling inside the output area. They look like small white or black plastic rollers and these little devils are what press onto your icing sheets and leave annoying marks.
Here is few quick tips :
Change settings to standard quality printing and paper type to plain ...ink is not drying fast enough , raise temperature in room if possible . Try to avoid printing images with dark colors or leave them to be printed last .
.Widen the clearance between the sheet and the rollers
Selecting the ‘Prevent paper abrasion’ setting in the printer settings will widen the clearance between the Print Head and the loaded paper, meaning that the pins won’t roll onto the icing sheet so closely.
To do this, assuming you are using a Canon (a brand we recommend for icing printing due to their removable print heads), click on Printer Properties > Maintenance > Custom Settings > and tick ‘Prevent Printer Abrasion’. Incidentally, changing the ‘ink drying wait time’ won’t help this – this is simply the time the printer waits between each print.
. Dry out paperIf it is humid conditions, the icing sheet can take longer to absorb the ink, meaning that the drying ink can roll onto the sheet. In this situation it helps to dry out the sheet

About Cake Decorating
Cake decorating is art that is performed in places all over the world. That is why contests and baking show competitions are very popular, especially in the Western World. Cake decorating is one of the sugar arts that uses icing or frosting and other edible decorative elements to make plain cakes more visually interesting. Alternatively, cakes can be molded and sculpted to resemble three-dimensional persons, places and things.
In many areas of the world, decorated cakes are often a focal point of a special celebration (such as a birthday, graduation, bridal shower, wedding, or anniversary), or are given as gifts. They can also mark national or religious holidays, or be used to promote commercial enterprises.
