A lovely touch for a cake and really different to a ribbon! How about this edible film strip which is made up of icing strips that look like film and are personalised with any photographs you like! The strips are 1.5 inches in height and come in 4 strips of 10.5 inches with enough room for 6 photographs on each strip. They can easily be cut to the length you need. The strips can be stuck to the cake with either cool boiled water or a clear alcohol.
The film strips are printed using edible inks and have a shelf life of up to 12 months (sometimes longer!) if kept in a dry place in the packaging that they are supplied in.
