So, how do you make a picture for dessert yourself?
- To get started, buy the necessary products. You will need special food paints and "edible" paper, it can be rice, waffle or sugar.
- Next you need to prepare the base for the picture. To do this, the surface must be covered with mastic or cream, which must be given to pre-harden.
- The third stage is the most laborious. For him you will need:
- the original photo that you want to put on baking;
- food printer, ink, paper;
- gel for fixing;
In a special graphic program on a computer, you need to process the scanned photo (add a frame, decorations, an inscription), adjust it to the desired size and print.After that, cut out the image, if necessary, grease with confectionery gel, and attach, gently leveling the picture over the surface.
Usually sugar or rice paper does not gloss over the top, and waffle paper requires coating. For it, it is necessary to dissolve the gelatin in water, heat it up to complete dissolution and apply it to the surface.
It is necessary to work with a photo very carefully, especially if it was just printed out, so as not to damage the drawing.
The undoubted plus of such decorations is that they can be eaten without worrying about their health. The natural ingredients used for food printers are completely safe.
