Wafer paper


What is wafer paper?  Wafer paper, also known as rice paper is usually made of potato or rice starch, oil, and water.


During the Renaissance, wafer paper was served as a dessert. It was a luxury food that only the aristocracy and upper-middle class could afford.

Nowadays, cake artists have been using it for cake decorating purposes for a while but it's only very recently that it started gaining more popularity.

The lockdown presented me with the perfect opportunity to familiarise myself with this new medium. I'm still in the process of learning this new skill but here's a few pictures of what I created so far.
