How to Put Images & Logos on Cakes

Does your child have a favorite cartoon character?

 Wouldn't it be nice if you could put the company logo on the office party cake?

Now you can.

Transferring simple line drawings to cakes may seem like a job for the professionals, but it's really one of the easiest projects possible for a beginner cake decorator.

 It's true, you're friends will be ultra-impressed and only you have to know how simple it really was.

Once you learn this technique, the possibilities are endless!

In addition to the regular cake decorating supplies -- pastry bags, decorating tips, etc., you will need a sheet of rice paper. This edible "paper" is used for a pattern. Don't worry, the icing will naturally dissolve the paper before you ever get around to eating the cake, but even if it didn't, it's edible (it's even Kosher). You can find rice paper at cake decorating suppliers or hobby & craft stores.

So follow these simple steps and before you know it, you'll be turning out professional looking cakes!

1. Use a non-toxic crayon (any Crayola will do) or a food coloring decorating marker to trace your design (from a coloring page or stencil) onto the rice paper. In order to get the most use from a single sheet of paper, place your design as close to the edge as possible. Once you're finished tracing, carefully cut out the design as close to the borders as possible. Save the remaining paper for another time.

Simple line drawings are easy to find, in coloring books or search the internet for "coloring pages".

2. Center the cut out rice paper pattern on your frosted cake.

3. Fill a pastry bag, outfitted with a small round writing tip, with dark colored icing. This is what you'll outline the design with. If you don't want to make your own icing (getting a dark enough color can be difficult), but canned dark fudge icing works very well for outlining. Outline the entire design.

4. Now it's time to fill in the design. Remember to start filling in with the smallest detailed areas first and the largest areas last. Use a small star tip for filling and pipe lots of tiny stars until the entire area of your design is completed. Don't worry if some of your outline seems to be getting lost, you're going to go over it again. To get instruction on how to pipe stars go to and click on their "Learn to Decorate" section. Then go to "Basic Decorating Lessons", then click on "Basic Decorating Techniques", then choose "stars". You can even watch a video clip of this technique.

5. After you've finished filling in, take your outline bag and re-outline the entire design again. It amazing how this step will bring the design to life. Now it's time to finish the cake. You might want to pipe a simple border or two. Another easy technique is to cover the sides of the cake in multi-colored dots.
