The Canvas Cake

Another exciting and unique personalised edible product from Eat Your Photo is the Canvas Cake. We have taken the photo cake to a whole new level and created a method of printing any image (photo quality) directly onto icing which in turn is applied to your cake. This creates a fantastic visual effect whereby your image or pattern entirely covers your cake (top and sides included) and it becomes an edible work of art.

As you can imagine this (as with our previous edible challenges) has not been a quick and easy process to develop not only the equipment capable of printing onto icing but the skill to transfer the icing to the cake.

When sugar icing is printed it must be in a soft a pliable state, in order for the edible ink to be absorbed into the surface and also it must be in a soft and pliable state when transferred to the cake, if not the colours would crack on the surface and destroy the effect. This is normally an advantage when decorating cakes as the icing can be easily worked around corners and curves on the surface of a cake and can be smoothed to finish the effect.

When the icing has been printed, however, and is picked up to be transferred to the cake, if it is soft, the image will be stretched and distorted, if it is dry, the image will crack. When we had developed the method of printing onto icing we had thought we had cracked it but actually the next step of the process proved even more difficult to master.

We don’t give in lightly and we have now mastered the process of creating Canvas Cakes for distribution around the country and it is another fantastic addition to our personalised edible product range. You can choose from the normal photo cake, the canvas cake, personalised cup cakes and the new gift cake and we guarantee that one of them will suit your needs and desires!

The Gift Cake

A new edition to the Eat Your Photo cake range is the gift cake. After receiving loads of positive feedback about our cakes, both photo cakes and canvas cakes, there was one thing that kept popping up:

“We absolutely love your cakes and would love to send one as a gift to my friend, do you make them in smaller sizes?”

We originally developed our cake range with the intention of supplying big parties/celebrations and large corporate/promotional events and therefore designed them accordingly, not only were they ample in dimension but deep as well to make sure everyone was completely satisfied. Not only did we design the cakes around this idea but also the packaging, along with a major packaging company, we developed a system whereby all our cakes would arrive in the condition that we sent them out – PERFECT!

Always happy to please our customers we set about developing the perfect cake for people to send as a gift or a thank you, or a message or just for fun. It was back to the drawing board with the packaging as dealing with a smaller cake gave us a lot of new challenges in that area and we didn’t want something that had been done before – how could we add the wow factor?

Our solution was to build a box that was strong enough for the job and then create an inner frame to make sure the cake was totally secure in transit but not only that we have made the packaging part of your design, you can have your image printed onto the packaging as well as the cake itself. Choose to have your cake photo extend out over the packaging or choose to have a separate design on the packaging to enhance the design on your cake.

It’s probably better to take a look for yourself at eatyourphoto.co.uk

Although it is the smallest cake in our range at 16cm square, 8cm high and weighing in at 1.4Kg it certainly packs in loads of cake – it’s the little cake that BIG! Couple that with the added impact of the packaging design and you are sure to impress with this gift.

It is with great pleasure that I can now announce that the gift cake is through the development stage and is ready to order through our website so don’t delay and get your order in now.
