Wilton Sugar Sheets Edible Decorating Paper- a Review
Subject: Trying out a new product for a kiddush
 

While at a tzedaka party, a woman demonstrated how to decorate cupcakes with buttercream icing.  She also showed a cupcake on which she used a new product: Edible Sugar Paper. When I asked how it tasted she said "Sweet like sugar".

 
 

So, since I had my granddaughter's kiddush coming up, I decided to try out this product to decorate some miniature cupcakes.

I first searched online for some information on this product, and found the following description:

There's no preparation, no mess. Just peel, punch or cut and place your decorations in minutes. Sugar Sheets! have a light, sweet flavor that works with buttercream or fondant-covered treats.

With 21 great colors and patterns to choose from, Sugar Sheets! brings the fun and versatility of paper crafting to your cakes. Add your own special touches, too. Write messages with FoodWriter® Edible Color Markers,etc.

I decided to be adventurous and bought the item at a Michael's store near my home.



 

So, I baked miniature cupcakes, using an easy white cake recipe, and frosted it with a pareve white buttercream ( I used a star tip to decorate the edges)

Then I took a clean heart-shaped craft punch, and punched out hearts from the pink sugar paper. Using pink and purple foodmarkers, I wrote my granddaugher's name on some of the hearts in English, and some in Hebrew. I carefully placed them on the center of each cupcake.

Voila! Beautiful Personalized Miniatures!



Now for a taste test:

They looked great, but tasted like paper! Not sweet at all.

Well, at least they looked gorgeous, and were technically edible.

(I told guests to remove the paper, and enjoy the rest of the cupcake.)
