Definition: photo cake


A cake with a photograph imprint. Photo cakes are made with edible ink printing onto sugar-based frosting sheets or wafer paper that is then placed on top of the cake. Ordinary inkjet printers are used, typically Canon models, although specialized printers are also available. Along with local supermarkets and bakeries, photos can be uploaded to websites for delivery via the mail. Photo cookies and cupcakes are printed in a similar manner.
