After making cakes for over 12 years, I noticed a huge trend in the cake decorating industry. Icing sheets. Introduced in the 1990’s edible icing sheets were more commonly used in bakeries and by cake decorating professionals. More recently, finding it’s way into in-store bakeries, it has given the customer more choices, creativity and flexibility. What is so great about icing sheets is not only does it give you creative control over you cakes; it is a huge time saver for the cake decorator.
Let’s take a few moments to understand what a novice cake decorator will do to decorate a cake, given all the steps needed - mixing the initial batch of white icing, separating the icing into many bowls, adding the color paste food coloring, mixing again, adding the individual icing to piping bags, adding the tips, then decorating the cake.
Well, icing sheets eliminates all this work. Not to mention the clean up, and waste of leftover icings. Also, an icing sheet will always give you better results then hours of piping because the image is exact. Gone are the days of doing cakes using only a star tip!
You can even take the icing image to your favourite bakery and they will put the image on your cake for free!
It also costs less to put an icing image on your cake, then it would be to pay a decorator to decorate a cake.
Everyone knows that the more times you copy an image, the quality becomes distorted a little each time. When you print off a picture, then bring it to a bakery to have them scan it, and turn it into an icing sheet, it becomes a 3-step process. We eliminate 1 step, which ensures a better quality image. When you upload your image to us, we take that exact image and print it off onto an icing sheet.
Taking this all into consideration, I decided to start up Photo Finish Icing Sheets. An on-line store that allows you to choose your image, add a message to be printed onto your image, and it will be mailed directly to you. You can do this all from the comfort of your home, day or night. This allows YOU creative control of your cakes! It’s like bakery results at your fingertips!
