What is the Manufacturing Process of Edible Sugar Icing Sheets?

by Nitin Kumar Digital Marketing Company

Nowadays, it’s super easy to buy gorgeous prints of edible sugar icing sheets to cover a cake or just add a few details on your desserts. Here I’m going to share how I like to make edible sugar icing sheets at home.


2 cups (400g) of granulated white sugar, 4 tablespoons (80g) of glucose syrup, 2-3 drops of gel food coloring


 1) Mix sugar and food coloring together until sugar is completely colored. This can easily be achieved by putting the sugar and food coloring in a snap-lock bag and then using your fingers to move the sugar around.

 2) Melt the glucose syrup slightly until it is a liquid texture by putting it into the microwave for approx. 10 seconds.

 3) Transfer the sugar mixture into a bowl and combine it with the glucose syrup using a spoon at first (as the glucose syrup may be hot).

 4) Once the sugar and glucose syrup is mostly combined, use your fingers to mix the rest of the mixture until it is completely combined. Once you reach a sandy texture, your mixture is ready to roll out.

 5) Transfer the mixture onto a piece of baking paper/parchment paper/silicone sheet (anything non-stick that can go in the oven). Put another sheet of baking paper/parchment paper/silicone sheet on top of the mixture and use a rolling pin to gently roll out the mixture until the desired length/height is achieved. Be careful not to roll out the mixture too thin, otherwise, the chances of the sugar sheet wilting in humid weather is higher.

 6) Once your sheet is rolled out, inspect the sheet to ensure no pieces of the sheet have become detached from the main sheet. If this has happened, just use your fingers to re-attach the parts which have separated and gently re-roll them.

 7) Let the mixture air dry for 1 hour, and then place it into the oven for 12 minutes at 50 degrees Celsius (122°F).

 8) Once the mixture is removed from the oven, let it completely cool (approximately 30 minutes).

9) Once cooled, use a sharp instrument/knife to cut a straight line to act as the bottom of your sugar sheet. This will be the side of the sugar sheet that will wrap around the bottom of your cake so that it is flush with the cake board.

10) Gently wrap the sugar paper around your cake. You can finish off the tips by painting them with an edible metallic gold/silver, and continue to decorate it however, you like!
