Wafer Paper Flowers Lincolnshire
I'm proud to be one of the first cake makers to offer wafer paper flowers in Lincolnshire.
Wafer paper flowers are made of wafer paper but what is wafer paper? Wafer paper is made of potato 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. It seems like this modern trend is yet to take the British cake world over.
This new form of cake decorating ingredient can be turned into frills, ruffles, rosettes, feathers, quilling, graceful flowers and many more.

Wafer paper flowers are edible cake decorations and because wafer paper is made from starch it's food safe. They're safe to use on cakes but they may contain inedible elements like wires. So it's best to assume that they shouldn't be eaten.
In appearance wafer paper flowers are more delicate than traditional sugar paste or icing flowers.
They are also lightweight and less breakable and can be made into the most elegant and dainty cake decorations.
If you would like to know how I could incorporate wafer paper for your cake design,
