a pricey investment and both the ink refills and special icing paper aren’t cheap but I have to say overall it was worth it.

9″ square cake
iced edible ink printer
a4 edible icing sheet
a4 wafer paper sheets
edible glue & brush
modelling paste
caramel ivory food colour paste

Directions Step-By-Step

I downloaded this image of a game board from google images, cropped it and printed it onto the A4 Edible Icing sheet. I then downloaded this image of Scrabble tiles and printed enough copies onto wafer paper to get the letters I needed. Wafer paper is cheaper than edible icing sheets and the letters don’t need to be as crisp as the board.

Once printed I trimmed the board print, carefully peeled off the backing and gently glued it to the top of the cake, smoothing out any air-bubbles. I then cut out the wafer paper letter tiles I needed.
I rolled out my caramel coloured modelling paste. Using the glue I stuck the wafer letters onto the smooth surface
When they’d dried a little bit I trimmed round them to make 3D tiles
I arranged the tiles into the desired message and piped round the edges of the Scrabble board to cover the joins. A few extra tiles on the board add to the 3D effect and any left-over wafer letters can be glued round the side
