Icing Images® offers a huge variety of cake decorating products and supplies for bakers, homemakers, hobbyists, and professional cake decorators. This page will explain what we offer, how it works, and what you need to get started.

Edible Paper Art is the process of decorating cakes, cupcakes, cookies, chocolate, candy, etc. with edible icing sheets that can have an image or design printed on them, can be cut out in decorative patterns, and even used to build dimensional shapes.

All of these techniques are accomplished by using tools and supplies that are created just for the edible decorating industry. Paper made of icing, inks made of food coloring, printers and cutters that work with the icing sheets, and a huge variety of other decorating tools and goodies allow you to bring out your creativity in a completely edible style.

Icing Images appears on the LifeTime TV show "The Balancing Act" to demonstrate how easy Paper Art can be. Click the image to watch our appearance.

Here are some basic ways Edible Paper Art can be applied:

Image printed on edible icing sheet and applied to cake. See our Customer Cakes page for more examples by our customers. iDesigns™ flower pattern printed on edible icing sheets and wrapped around sides of cake. Simple cutout shapes using Silhouette Electronic Cutter applied to cake. Dimensional shapes created using die cutters with the Sweet Accents™ Cake Designer. Images printed on edible icing sheet and applied to cookies.

I want to print edible pictures...

If you are interested in printing pictures or patterns on edible icing sheets, such as a team photo, a logo, a child's photo, etc. on top of the cake, or if you want to print a fancy design to wrap around the edge of your cake, you will need an Edible Printing System.

These systems contain a printer that comes with Edible Icing Sheets and uses Edible Inks and Cartridges. Icing Sheets are an actual layer of icing that bonds with your frosted cake, cookie, etc, or can be shaped as standalone art. The inks are special food coloring formulas designed for use in printers. The inks print right on the icing sheets and can be applied to your cake right away. (never use regular inks in the same printer!)

Premium Icing Sheets™ for printing

While you can print on any Edible Icing Sheet, white or colored, usually you will print on the white icing sheets. Edible Icing Sheets come in many sizes, including templates for multiple prints of circles or squares, as shown in the image to the left.

For more information on Edible Icing Sheets, click here.

Colored Icing Sheets for printing and cutting

While Colored Icing Sheets can also be printed on for interesting effects, they are used mostly for cutting out patterns and shapes. Coming in 13 colors on 12x12 sheets, these sheets are solid color all the way through, so no white cut lines, they bend without cracking, can be painted, airbrushed, stamped, punched, quilled, etc.

Try our New Luster Sheets for a lustry sheen that adds dimension to your images. These sheets come in 11 colors.

Edible ink cartridges and refill bottles

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. Our refill bottles allow you to easily refill the inks in each cartridge without having to buy new cartridges each time (usually three refills per cartridge).

Sweet Accents™ Cake Designer

The Sweet Accents™ Cake Designer is completely portable and does not require a computer or electricity. Simply sandwich any one of our Premium Icing Sheets along with your favorite food safe die or embossing folder, and with a simple twist of a handle you have amazing designs to decorate with! Fast, easy and affordable. These food safe dies work great with Isomalt and even gumpaste. Create frames, flowers, accents, patterns, backgrounds, cake toppers, textures, etc.

By printing iDesigns™ patterns on our Premium Icing Sheets, you can punch out incredible artistic creations in no time.

Electronic Cutter System

You can use any of our Electronic Cutter Systems to cut out complicated patterns and shapes.

Our Electronic Cutter Systems feature the Silhouette Cameo Cake Cutter and come with software and many accessories that allow you to set up any shape or design and get perfect cuts.

Use these tools with our solid colored cutter sheets, or expand your creativity and cut sheets with designs that you print on them.
