Decorating Cookies with Edible Frosting Sheets

IMG_9376 bannerFrosting sheets are printed designs using edible ink that can be applied to cakes, cookies, cupcakes and other desserts. They bond seamlessly with fondant, royal icing and buttercream. Edible frosting sheets are thin and very delicate. A gentle touch must be used when applying to cookies or cakes. If the sheet tears, gently press the design back together if possible. Edible frosting sheets are available in dozens of prints. Some designs come in pre-cut strips or circles while other sheets are full size. Full size sheets are about the size of a sheet of paper and can be cut to fit a cake or cookies.

Applying Frosting Sheets with Rolled Fondant
Roll white fondant to desired thickness. Brush solid vegetable shortening on the rolled fondant. Remove image from baking paper by dragging downward across a sharp corner such as the edge of your counter. Place the edible frosting sheet (We used Rose Garden.) on the rolled fondant. Use the same cutter that was used for the baked cookie to cut the shape. Place the printed frosting on top of the cookie, securing it with buttercream icing or piping gel.

Cutting Frosting Sheets
If using buttercream or run sugar icing, the frosting sheet should be cut to fit the cutter shape. Use scissors to cut the frosting sheets (We used a tiger print.), or use craft punches, which are ideal for perfect circles, leaves, flowers, and other shapes. For best results, cut while the frosting sheet is on the paper backing.

Applying Frosting Sheets with Run Sugar (Thinned Royal Icing)
Cut the frosting sheet to fit the cookie, or use pre-cut printed sheets (shown). Remove image (We used Countryside.) from baking paper by dragging downward across a sharp corner such as the edge of your counter.   Ice the cookie with white run sugar. Place the frosting sheet on the wet icing.

Applying Frosting Sheets with Buttercream
Cut the frosting sheet to fit the cookie, or use pre-cut printed sheets. Remove image (We used Cheetah.) from baking paper by dragging downward across a sharp corner such as the edge of your counter. Ice the cookie with white buttercream. Place the frosting sheet on the wet icing.
