TRANSFER SHEET CRISIS! Wedding is in 3 weeks! Im doomed...
Posted in: Tech Help, Tips, Tricks, & Techniques
So it's been a while since I posted a question here (which is usually a good thing!), but I'm in a bad spot right now. I will explain.
So I have been using standard chocolate transfer sheets I buy from chefrubber.com (great site). The sheets are completely translucent like an overhead projector sheet. They are printed on with the cocoa butter print ink and other than that there is nothing on the sheet.
I decided to buy my own edible ink printer and print my own for when I do weddings because it costs too much to order them and they make me buy 100 times more than I need.
Here is the problem; the 'Blank transfer sheets' have this matte looking layer (not clear at all, its white) that is made out of like corn starch or something. THIS ISNT WHAT I WANTED! I talked on the phone with the lady for like 10 minutes trying to explain to her that I wanted them to be like the ones I get on cheffrubber that are COMPLETELY clear and have the design printed onto it like that.
The ones that I got leave weird texture marks on the chocolate and they dont transfer very well, and the color.... the color is horrendous! They look so dull! I am used to the ones ive been using that are so bright and vibrant.
Take a look at the pics on my site (klassychocolates.com) and see if you know what Im talking about.
I have to make a "J&J" logo in lavender by the end of the month and I was really hoping this printer thing would work.
Thank you so much in advance for any assistance you can provide. Anything you can offer will not only help me, but will help hundreds of others when they search the same topic because this site is the best one out there and always comes up first.
