So what is edible wafer paper?
Wafer paper generally is made of dehydrated potato starch, water and vegetable oil. It is usually tasteless (although some have a vanilla flavouring), and dissolves in the mouth therefore, will not alter or impair the taste of your food. It sits on top of your sweet/food creation in a thin layer and will not melt into your frosting. Edible Image Supplies high-quality Edible Wafer Paper has a smooth white, manufactured in the Netherlands from all-natural ingredients - Potato starch 86%, water 11%, olive oil 3% - it is gluten-free and suitable for vegans.
Using an edible ink printer, edible wafer paper sheets can be printed with Edible Images Supplies high-quality edible ink and fed through your printer the same as regular paper. Wafer paper sheets do not have a backing sheet and are easily used in conjunction with design software such as Icing Artist.
What is great about edible wafer paper is that it generally maintains its shape unless exposed to a large amount of liquid, which will cause it to dissolve. Making it perfect for 3-dimensional decorations such as flowers and butterflies. Because of its slight translucency, it can offer a more delicate appearance, which works beautifully for delicate flower designs.
For best result, apply your wafer paper designs using a light mist of water or piping gel a short time before presentation to avoid any moisture damage. Placing wafer paper designs directly onto fresh whipped cream will cause the wafer paper to ripple and the image to potentially bleed - it is best to use a thin barrier such as fondant or chocolate when applying to moist surfaces.
NOTE: Because of its slight translucence, printed colour on wafer paper can be less vibrant (than on icing sheets) and appear slightly blurred.
