When it comes to new and innovative cake decorating techniques, Wafer paper is Queen!
I originally learned about wafer paper form the super talented Stevi Auble, Queen of wafer paper.
Wafer paper is and edible translucent paper that can be printed, colored and shape, it was originally made of rice starch, but it is currently made of potato starch. It has a mild flavor and it melt at the contact of moisture.
Wafer paper flowers have such vintage and ethereal look...their translucent look makes them look whimsical. They are also faster to make than sugar paste flowers...and I certainly LOVE that!
One of the most mind blowing things about wafer paper is it's versatility. It wan be printed, colored and shaped to beautifully petal shapes...but it can also be layered using a collage or decoupage technique!. It can also be accentuated with edible grade silver leaf like in the image above.
Get your hands on a package of wafer paper and you'll be hooked for life!
