Re: iceing print

This is very nice.

The process for printing those photos and stuff on cakes is pretty simple: they print in edible ink on a piece of rice paper or icing sheets, set the rice paper onto an iced cake and the paper dissolves onto the icing. I would think one could print with a block onto the sheets. I can only imagine, limited edition cakes. This could be a whole new business for someone. (There are companies that sell pre-printed sheets with cartoon characters, etc. Imagine selling one's own images.) The possibilities seem endless.

Happy Birthday Mark - and what a cool mum, she obviously and understandably feels very proud of your printmaking and it's a fantastic way to show it - as if making a cake for her 26 year old isn't enough already! Fi
