Question:What is the shelf life of the Frosting Sheets™?
Answer:One year. Be sure to keep the Frosting Sheets™ in their air tight plastic closed/sealed bag, otherwise they will dry out and become brittle and unusable.
Question:Will the Frosting Sheets™ melt into frosting that has set for a day or more?
Answer:If the frosting on the cake appears dry or crusty, apply a fine mist of water onto the cake top before applying the Frosting Sheet. This can be achieved with an airbrush or small misting bottle.
Question:With what types and brands of frosting do Frosting Sheets™ work best?
Answer:Fresh Buttercream or Non-Dairy topping, Fondant, Marzipan, even Ice Cream are the best. It is recommended that you do not put the Frosting Sheets™ directly on a high moisture base, such as whipped creams. You may fill cakes with whipped cream, but use a thin layer of buttercream under the actual Frosting Sheets™. You may use hard frostings, such as Royal Icing, Marzipan, etc., but you should also put a very thin coating of a buttercream, piping gel, or at least a fine mist water spray so the Frosting sheet will adhere to the surface.
Question:What do I do if the Frosting Sheets™ will not come off the backing sheet?
Answer: If your frosting will not peel off its backing sheet it is because it is too damp most likely due to humidity.
There are a number of things you can do:
Place the sheet in a very cold DRY freezer for 10-15 seconds. Not Longer. We find this method works the best of all.
Use a hair dryer to blow hot air on the front and reverse side of the backing sheet for 30-40 seconds.
Leave the Frosting Sheets™ in normal room conditions to allow it to dry sufficiently.
Roll the Frosting Sheets™ over the edge of a desk to encourage the frosting to come off.
Leave the Frosting Sheets™ in an air conditioned room for a short time.
Place the Frosting Sheets™ in a warm dry oven at a low temperature for about 1-2 minutes, or lay the sheet on a warm pan for 1-2 minutes.
Question:Can the Frosting Sheets be stored after printing?
Answer:Yes. Return the printed Frosting Sheet, once printed and place it back in an air tight sealed plastic bag. You may choose to dry the image before or after storage. Be sure to keep the image out of any direct light to prevent color deterioration.
Question:Why do cracks appear on the image?
Answer:If the cake is allowed to flex during transportation, wrinkles or cracks may appear depending in whether the image was compressed or stretched. Using a double board, especially with half sheet cakes, will help eliminate this problem.
Question: Why are my images fading?
Answer: To avoid fading, keep images out of fluorescent lights and UV light (sunlight).
