EDIBLE CAKE IMAGES TO MAKE YOUR NEXT OCCATION UNFORGETTABLE

At Lollipop Cake Supplies we love everything cake. We understand that sometimes you want to add that extra special touch to a cake or batch of cupcakes to really have that WOW factor.

 

Our edible cake images (sometimes called edible cake toppers) can be custom made to suit your cake or cupcakes and are available for mini cupcakes, large cupcakes, round cakes or for many other applications using our A4 sheet. Different sizes and options are available.

 

WHAT ARE EDIBLE IMAGES MADE OF?

Our edible images are made of high quality icing and Bake Print edible image ink. We use only high quality ingredients and equipment to ensure the quality of our product and the clarity of our edible images.

 

ARE EDIBLE IMAGES SAFE?

Yes - Edible images are made up of two components, the icing sheet (we use Bake Print brand) and the ink. The icing sheet can be attached to almost any type of cake or cupcake and the ink is made of a specially formulated food colouring to match the colours of traditional ink. This is why we can provide such great quality edible images!

 

HOW LONG TO EDIBLE IMAGES LAST?

If stored correctly edible images should last at least 6 months but chances are the cake won’t last that long with hungry guests eying it off ;-)   High humid weather conditions can effect edible images, so if you're unsure just ask us!

 

WHEN SHOULD I PUT MY EDIBLE IMAGE ON THE CAKE?

If possible put it on the cake the day of the event. You can put it on the day before but it will need to be stored correctly as they can dry out quickly or if the edible image get moist it can ruin your design. It will depend on your environment and the weather and also on the type of icing you’re using on your cake (Buttercream, fondant, ganache etc). If you would like some advice please email us info@lollipopcakesupplies.com.au.

 

HOW BIG CAN THEY BE?

We offer a range of different sizes ranging from 3cm right up to A3 size. So no matter what size cake, cupcake or round cake you have we will have something for you to put on top of it!

 

WHAT'S THE IMAGE QUALITY LIKE OF EDIBLE IMAGES?

Edible images are essentially just like printing on paper, you’re just using a different type of “paper” and ink. We’ve heard comments at parties thinking people had put photographs on top of a cake only to be surprised when the knife cut through it and they got a slice with a piece of the image!

 

Keep in mind that we are using food colour as the "ink" and with this there is a chance of some variances with the colour printed on the image sheets just the same as there is with printing on a regular printing on regular printing paper.

 

CAN I ADD CUSTOM TEXT TO MY IMAGE?

Yes most definitely, we can add custom text ie; Congratulations John on your retirement, Happy 3rd Birthday Sophie, etc..

 

This option is available on our A4, A3, 20cm and 16cm round circles. There is an additional fee for this service and can be selected when purchasing your image sheet.

 

TIPS & IDEAS FOR USING EDIBLE IMAGES.

 

Custom edible image prints are available for mini cupcakes, large cupcakes, round cakes or for many other applications using our A4 sheet. We have 3cm, 5cm and 16cm round images as well as an A4 sheet which can hold one large image, or multiple smaller images.

 

HOW DO I ORDER MY CUSTOM EDIBLE PRINTS?

After ordering, email your image to info@lollipopcakesupplies.com.au. For the image to be of high quality, a high resolution image is highly recommended. It is preferred that the image is at least 500kb in size and is 300dpi. If the image fills your computer screen and looks clear when viewing it should be ok to print.

 

Images need to be emailed in either a jpg, jpeg, png, or pdf format.  We cannot accept any word & graphic processing files (ie; Word, Publisher) due to the formatting changing when opening between computers.   To save your document as a pdf you need to select File - Print - Save As PDF.

 

If you are unsure whether your image will be suitable, you are welcome to email the image to us and we can check the size & quality for you. 

 

HOW LONG WILL I HAVE TO WAIT FOR MY IMAGES?

Generally we say allow a minimum of 2 business days for your custom edible image print to be completed and then of course if you would like your image posted, allow time for that as well. We will send through a proof upon request for you to approve before we print your images.  If you do require your images sooner, then please call or email us and we'll see if we can help out, however images required within 24 hours may incur an additional fee.

   

As our custom edible print workload varies each day we sometimes can have your images printed sooner however please allow up to 2-3 business days before they are ready to be dispatched to avoid disappointment. 

 

As we only want to supply high quality images, it is imperative that the images are of a high resolution. We will advise prior to printing if we need a better quality image. This will ensure that there is no pixelation of the image.

 

Shipping for any of the A4 Edible Image Prints is via Express Post. Shipping for A3 images is via courier or Australia Post. Express post is available for A3 images. Shipping prices are available here.
