Using Icing sheets
Using icing sheets really is simple.
1) Remove the plastic backing
2) Using clean sharp scissors trim the topper to the desired shape and size
3) Apply (methods listed below)
If you have any difficulty removing the icing from the plastic, place it face down and try removing the plastic from the icing so the icing stays flat, this will also help to prevent any breakages. Using the tip of a sharp knife can also be useful, but in 99% of cases they simply peel off with ease.
There are many methods used to secure the topper, most people put them onto an iced cake. To do this simply brush a little water over your iced cake to make the icing tacky - do NOT get water on the topper or the water will make the image run. Place the topper onto the tacky icing and pat down with dry fingers. Leave to dry for half hour and the topper should be secured.
Other methods used include edible glue, jam, buttercream, whipped cream - it's all personal choice.
