How to make the perfect Photo Cake:

1. Start by having a level, clean (crumb free), room temperature cake. If your cake has a “hump” in the middle gently cut the top level using a serrated knife. Helpful hint: put your cake in the freezer for about an hour prior to leveling as this will make it easier to cut and you won’t get as many crumbs when icing your cake.

2. Ice your cake as you would any other cake.Various frosting can be used such as butter cream (produces the best results), whipped cream or non-dairy topping and even frozen ice cream cakes. For the best results apply the edible image immediately after frosting your cake. Your frosting or icing should not be dry or have a skin prior to placing the edible image.

3. Remove the edible image from the plastic backing sheet. The edible image should peel away easily from the plastic backing sheet. If any difficulty: pull backing sheet over the sharp edge of a table - imaged side up. You can read more complete instructions on working with edible images at Fill Your Heart Edible Memories, How to apply Edible Imaged Cake Stickers.

Gently remove the edible image beginning with a corner - do not pull hard on the sheet as they are a bit delicate and could rip.

Lay the edible image sheet 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 the edges are touching frosting. See the photos examples below.

4. Create some piped borders around the edible image or apply festive sprinkles for an added touch.

You have just created a masterpiece! Now you can make cakes for all your friends and family!
