Why Are Photo Cakes So Trending These Days?

The cake industry had a revolution years back in the late 90s when the technology to print images in edible sheets specifically for cake decoration was achieved. With continuous experiments from bakers all around the globe edible ink printing was completed successfully and photo cake rose to popularity allowing the customers to own a cake that’s as unique as their celebration. 

What Is A Photo Cake?

A photo cake is a twist to add memories and old stories to your cakes and personalise them. Photo cakes are made just like a regular cake but it has a picture printed on icing sheets or frosting paper with edible ink placed on top of it. You can choose whatever picture you want to use and get it printed on the cake. Since all these ingredients are made from edible material, eating them is 100% safe. The thin edible sheets for printing are made with rice or sugar, they do not have any weird texture or flavour so the taste of the cake is not compromised at all. The image is printed digitally so it looks extremely real and seems like a real picture from a frame. 

How Photo Cake Is Made?

Photo cakes are made just like a normal cake except for the picture that is printed on the top of the cake. A special printer is used for the images on the cake. This printer uses food-safe ink and prints on edible paper sheets to keep the cake tasty and safe for consumption. Customers provide digital pictures of what they want on the cake and once printed, we place it on the cake and decorate it with icing and edible decorations to give the final touches to our beautiful cake. It looks like the picture is as real as the cake and with the taste it delivers a blend of emotions that were attached to the picture on the cake.

Is It Safe To Eat Ink Of Photo Cakes?

This is a widespread doubt of people while purchasing a photo cake. Is it safe to eat the ink? The answer is Yes! It is safe to eat the ink or the paper of the photo cake. The ink used on the cake is made with edible food colouring and the sheets used are made from corn starch, icing paper, or frosting sheets, all edible ingredients. With these ink and papers, you can use stunning colours and designs on your cake to make it extra special for your occasion.
