Edible Wafer Paper: Vintage Easter Postcards

April 3, 2009

Vintage Postcard Transfer Paper

The website advertises these beautiful vintage Easter designs for use on cookies. However, a friend used the Valentine’s Day cherub designs to make cookies and simply used them as cupcake toppers. Either way, they would be a unique treat on your Easter dessert table.

The Vintage Postcard set includes 14 different designs, each measuring approximately 3″ X 4.5″. You can make quick, easy, and creative cookie and cake decorations with these edible, sugar free printed wafer paper designs. Wafer Paper is an edible starch based confection, made of potato starch, water and vegetable oil. It has been printed with food safe ink. Wafer paper is fragile, so handle it carefully. It can be placed on top of any frosting: buttercream, royal icing, or fondant.

Directions for use: To decorate cookies, simply trace the shape of the cookie you wish to decorate with a cookie cutter. The cookie needs to be frosted with buttercream, royal icing or fondant. If applying the design to royal icing, the icing must be completely dry for best results. Simply spread a thin layer of light corn syrup to the back of your paper and then apply to the cookie. To ensure a smooth finish, turn the cookie over, wafer paper side down, on a piece of parchment paper for approximately 30 minutes. To completely dry, turn the cookie design side up for 12 hours. You can add a 3 dimensional effect by adding small sugar pearls, dragees, sugar decorations or edible glitter. To adhere, just use a small dot of clear piping gel.
