What is an edible caricature?

We've all seen caricatures, in the paper, while on holiday and propably wondered how we, or our loved ones would look when "done". Well wonder no longer, we at Eat Your Photo are able to create fantastic, funny, personalised caricature drawings from your photos. And not only that, we can  make them edible so you can put them on your celebration cakes to make any occasion extra special.

I've seen your examples but none of those themes are suitable, what shall I do?

The examples on the website are only to show the quality of our work and maybe give a few ideas, each caricature is drawn to the customer's own specifications so every drawing will be unique.

What kind of photo do you need?

A good quality head and shoulders photo, preferably smiling and showing a good likeness of the subject. Remember, the better the quality of photo, the better the quality of the caricature.

How do I get my photo to you?

You can upload your image while placing your order or send a hard copy through the post to Beach's Bakery 48 Leabrooks Road, Somercotes, Alfreton, Derbys. DE55 4HB

How long does it take?

The artwork will take around 5 working days.

Will  I get to see the drawing before you send it out?

Yes, we will send you a proof (via email) for you to approve.

What if I don't like it?

In the unlikely event that you are not totally amazed and amused by your caricature, we will make adjustments (within the original remit) until you are totally satisfied. Your order comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee!

What kind of celebrations are suitable?

Absolutely any kind of celebration can be made extra special with a caricature cake.

You say there's a free hard copy included - this sounds too good to be true?

It is true, with every caricature we will send you a free hard copy for you to keep forever. We soon realised when producing these fantastic caricatures that the only problem was that once you had eaten your cake, the artwork was lost forever. So we made sure this does not happen and now send out your free gift with every order.

How will I receive my edible photo?

You will receive your order through the post. It is packed securely in polythene, in a hard backed envelope sandwiched between stiff cardboard. We have sent thousands of images through the post without any ever being damaged.

What do I do when I receive my photo?

If you are not using your image immediately, store at room tempertaure in it's packaging. Lay flat and do not put anything on top of it.

What can I put my edible caricature onto?

Your edible caricature can be transfered onto celebration cakes, fairy cakes, muffins, biscuits, chocolates and even pies.

I have recieved my edible caricature, can I trim it to fit my cake?

Yes, you can trim the icing sheet with scissors, it's as simple as that. Do this while still on it's backing, it makes it easier.

What size of cake do I need?

Click here to see full details of the sizes of our edible images.You can bake or buy a cake the same size of the photo to cover the entire cake or alternetively use the photo as a centrepiece. The choice is yours.

What kind of icing is suitable?

The edible caricature can be used with almost any icings as long as they have no surface moisture, which could cause the colours to bleed. Sugar paste/fondant, buttercream and royal icing are ideal. If a cake covering that has a high moisture content (fresh cream) is desired, all is not lost. Put the image on a thin layer of sugar paste before applying to your cake.

Does it taste nice?

Your edible caricature will be virtually tasteless.

How long will it last?

Your edible image will last for up to 2 months. For best results we recommend using within 3 weeks.

How long before the party can I put it on my cake?

This is totally up to you. It can be applied to the cake up to a week before it is needed.

How do I pay?

You can pay by cheque (payable to Beach's Bakery) or securely online with all major credit and debit cards.
