Edible Image Cake Stickers are 100% edible, Orthodox Union Kosher Certified and FDA approved. Edible Cake Stickers can be applied to cakes, cookies, ice cream cakes and other edible goods. They meld to the surface by absorbing moisture from the food item, cut easily after application and are freeze-thaw stable.
Please read all the instructions before beginning.
See the attached information on “Helpful Hints” if you have difficulty.
How to Apply
1. Remove your Edible Image from the white plastic backing sheet.
For Rectangle and Strips prints: Gently roll the backing sheet over the sharp edge of a table or counter with image facing up. The image should release off the plastic white backing sheet. Gently peel the edible image off the plastic backing sheet. Do not pull hard on the sheet as they are a bit delicate and could rip. For any difficulty see the attached information on “Helpful Tips”.
For Pre-cut round and Square print: Edible images are already released from the white backing sheet. Edible prints are laying on the white plastic backing sheet ready to use.
2. Apply Edible Cake Sticker
TOPS of cakes or treats: Lay the edible image on top of your cake by holding the ends and gently applying from the middle first, to the ends. Gently smooth out the edible image making sure there are no bubbles and the edges are touching the frosting, fondant, or chocolate to ensure a nice clean look.
SIDES of cakes: Apply the first edible imaged strip from the middle first, to the ends. Smooth out using your fingers, making sure all the edges are touching the frosting or fondant. NOTE: before you smooth out the cake sticker make sure it is straight; when applied to frosting you can gently move the image a bit to position in place. When applied to fondant it will stay where you placed it. Place the next strip to match the end of the 1st strips, smooth out.
3. Create some piped borders around the edges or apply festive sprinkles for an added touch. Enjoy all the smiles when you present your special creation!

IMPORTANT: Do not let water come in contact with the TOP side of the edible image. It will ruin your print.
Having trouble removing image? Humid or moist conditions can cause the image to stick to the backing. If this happens try one or more of the following:
• Roll the sheet (image side up) over the table edge to loosen.
• Pop the image in the freezer for 15 to 30 seconds (some images may require more or less time) then try rolling the sheet on table edge again.
• Use a Cricut™ brand spatula to carefully separate the image from the backing sheet.
Image too soft for placing? If high humidity or warm hands make the image too floppy to handle, use the backing sheet to transport and slide the image into place on the cake or treat.
Worried about smearing ink? In humid conditions, the black ink may smear when applying image. To prevent this, use a piece of the backing sheet to smooth out the surface of a placed image.
Are the Edible Image® design colors running? The moisture content of the product you are placing it on may be too high. Do not add extra moisture to high-moisture products like non-dairy whipped toppings. Also consider the following:
• Be careful with freeze/thaw cycle of freezer to avoid build-up of ice crystals on frozen product.
• If product is decorated and refrozen, make sure packaging is vented to avoid ice buildup.
• Thaw finished frozen decorated products slowly, preferably uncovered in the refrigerator, to avoid sweating and color run.
Images brittle and cracking? This can happen if the storage bag is not resealed properly or if conditions are arid. If this happens, try one or more of the following:
• Place a humidifier in the area where you are storing the images.
• Place the bag in your proof box, open the bag to capture steam and reclose it.
• Open the bag near hot running water, allow steam only to enter bag and then reclose the bag.
• Place the single Edible Image® decoration in an airtight plastic container with a warm damp cloth, ensuring cloth does not touch image.
Does it bubble after application? Gently tap the image down with fingertips – do NOT rub. Bubbles can occur when the image is applied to over-whipped icing. As the bubbles of air rise to the surface of the icing, the image traps them and forms a bubble underneath. To prevent bubbles, be sure not to over whip icing before applying to cake.
