What Is The Difference Between Wafer Paper And An Icing Sheet?

by Nitin Kumar Digital Marketing Company
When starting in Edible Ink printing one of the first decisions is choosing the paper you will use. Wafer paper or Icing sheets? Both are different from each other in many ways such as Material / Texture, Printed appearance, Applying to cakes and cookies, Taste and Price.
 
Wafer papers and icing sheets are the two most popular edible sheet products in the market for edible printing. 

Icing sheets

Icing sheets are made of a very thin layer of icing pressed against a backing paper. The backing paper allows the printer to feed the icing paper without issue. The backing sheet can be made from clear plastic acetate sheets or gloss-treated paper. This backing paper must be peeled off before applying the icing sheet onto a cake. As icing sheets are thicker than wafer paper and closely resemble fondant icing they tend to produce a higher quality print finish than wafer paper. Icing sheets work best on cookies, cakes, and any other pastry. They lay down flat onto the surface and must be adhered to with either icing or lite corn syrup. 

Wafer paper

Wafer paper is a vegetarian product made from potato starches, water, and oil. It closely resembles standard paper but it is more translucent depending on its thickness. The wafer paper is mostly used for stand-up, 3D cake toppers, or cupcake vertical toppers; because of its rigidness, wafer paper can ‘stand up’ when inserted into a cupcake/cake.
 
If you are looking for good quality edible wafer paper or icing sheet, Icinginks is the best place! In my experience, it is the best online shop for premium quality cake decorating edible supplies and tools. They offer a different range of cake decorating supplies such as Edible inks, Edible cartridges, Edible paper Icing/Frosting sheets, rice paper, Wafer papers, Fondants, Airbrush ink, Chocolate transfer sheets, molds, edible pens, gel coloring, etc. at very affordable prices.
