There is an Ebay shop called Cake to Decorate which specialises in ‘cake toppers’. These are made from rice paper with edible ink, and mostly depict children’s cartoon characters, though you can also use a photo – or even your business logo.

Ideal for a lazy way of decorating your child’s birthday cake, I would think. They come in either fairy cake size or bigger (about 7.5 inches, or A5 paper size).

The ingredients used for these are: water, cornstarch, corn syrup solids, cellulose, sorbitol, glycerine, sugar, veg oil, arabic gum, polysorbate 80, vanilla, titanium dioxide and citric acid. But do check each one – ingredients could vary.
