I bought some printed rice paper decorations (flat circles of rice paper printed with edible ink) for my son's birthday party. I'm not sure what the best way is to attach them to cakes / cookies and I don't have a lot of spare time to experiement.
The options I can think of are:
- make my own cookies and press them in to the cookie - either before baking or more likely after baking but while still warm and soft
- place the rice paper circle on top of a pre-baked cookie or small flat-topped cake and pipe some form of icing or frosting around the edge to hold it in place
- pile butter cream icing on top of a small cake, press the rice paper circle onto the butter cream icing
What I ideally want is to be able to do this the day before they are needed, so as well as being held properly in place, I also would like the rice paper not to go soggy / curl up and the ink not to run or leak out of the rice paper.
