I haven’t done a Fortunate Friday post in quite some time and since I’m fully immersed up to my elbows in the cake world lately, I thought I would make my Fortunate Friday about all of the CAKE DECORATING TOOLS that I find helpful. . . and of course, we can’t forget the cupcakes!
Before I jump into the Cake Decorating Tools that make caking easier, I HAVE to thank Paul for the early Christmas present! You might have noticed the blog got a makeover! Isn’t it pretty!? I love it . . . thanks P! I’m so fortunate to have him <3
5 Cake Decorating Tools
1. Edible Ink Printer- This has been a tool that has come in extremely helpful. It allows the cake decorator to print pretty much ANY image onto edible paper, and place it on top of a cake or even cupcakes!
We currently use a Cannon MP640 to do our edible prints. What’s important to remember is to make sure that you do not ever put non-edible ink into the machine. The first ink that runs through the machine, must be edible ink.
Edible Inks are a specially formulated food coloring mixture for printing onto icing sheets. The colors are matched with regular inks, then modified to hold their coloring better on the icing sheets.
We get our edible ink and edible paper from Icing Images.
We have a step by step guide for you to watch on YouTube as well. Check it out here.
