How You Can Make These Creative Pieces At Home!

It must be noted that if you’re a beginner in baking, making this cake can be a bit of a challenge. Be that as it may, the most basic things you need to make this are an edible frosting sheet and rice paper which is printed on with edible ink.

How To Make It: –

Step 1: Place the bottom layer of the printed frosted sheet on top of the cake.

Step 2: Pipe a layer of buttercream frosting or meringue on the edges of the sheet. This will create space between the two layers and protect the bottom layer from burning.

Step 3: Place the printed rice paper on top of the cream or meringue.

You can now try lighting the top layer on fire to see if it is working. Don’t be discouraged if it doesn’t work in the first couple of tries!
