I ordered my daughter's fifth birthday cake from the bakery at King Sooper's this afternoon. There wasn't a butterfly cake in the catalog, but the staff person I talked to said that if I had a picture, she could use it to make an "edible image." I happened to have one of the party invitations in my purse, so I gave it to her and asked if it would do. She said yes, but she was about to get off for the evening and there was a line behind me, so I didn't have time to ask her what she meant by "edible image" or how she would go about making one. Has anybody heard of this? Is she just going to copy the colors as best she can, or is it some kind of tracing technique or what? Not an earth-shattering thing; I'm just curious.

They make edible printable paper with food coloring. They use special printers to copy the image and print the image on the edible paper.

I had them for my kids' birthdays one year. They make a printed sugar sheet. They came out great.
