Edible wafer paper is a trend here to stay in the cake decorating world, perhaps due to it's translucent beauty, drama, and versatility. With a little water or steam, edible wafer paper can be transformed into delicate flowers, feathers, layers or ruffles, adding drama and style to statement cakes. Once more, delicate wafer paper flowers, pleats and ruffles are fast, effective, cheap and tres chic! Perfect for the bohemian bride who favours delicate lanterns and cut paperwork decorations for her wedding, you can wow in white or colour paper and add lifelike floral shades with edibles dusts or airbrush colours.
