My New Favorite Cake

How to Frost a Cake with Edible Paper Pastry Sheets

You know how much I love to make cakes.

I have been looking for an amazing cake idea that looks incredible but is very easy. And I found it!

The cake I made today is covered with an edible paper pastry sheet. The sheet is printed with edible ink (on edible paper) and is placed on a frosted cake.

It looks amazing, tastes good, and is not hard to make.

That is what I call perfection!

Where to Find an Edible Cake Pastry Sheet

I found two places that sell these sheets (already printed) with great designs, Amazon and Etsy. You can find the printed sheets on Amazon here. Etsy has lots of options but my favorites are the floral printed sheets and tile sheets (like the one I used).

To make this cake, I used two boxes of gluten-free cake mix, two pieces of this edible paper pastry sheets, and double the recipe of my Buttercream Frosting recipe.

  • one – The easiest way to make a quick gluten-free cake is to use a mix. I love the King of Flour cake. I accidentally bought confetti but just sifted out the candies quite easily for a white cake.
  • two – Make three cakes and bake them in the oven.
  • three – Cool on a cooling rack.
  • four – Make a “cake form” with parchment paper using the cake pan. Staple the parchment paper to hold it together.
  • five – Take the “form” out of the pan and place it on a cake stand. Place the first cake layer in the form and top with frosting, making sure that the frosting goes all the way to the edges.
  • six – Repeat with all three layers.
  • seven – Remove the parchment paper by opening and tearing gently at the staples.
  • eight – Frost the remaining outsides of the cake, keeping the edges and top as even as possible.
  • nine – Measure the height of your cake (all the way around the entire cake) and mark the edges of the edible paper pastry sheets.
  • ten – Trim the edges on the sheets and cut them to fit the cake.
  • eleven – Peel off the plastic backing.
  • twelve – Place the sheets on the frosted cake and use a flat edge to adhere the sheet to the cake.

And this is the finished cake. Isn’t it wonderful?

This Buttercream Frosting recipe is great for cakes, cupcakes, and more. Its unique flavor is just the best.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes


  • 1 cup nonsalted butter (do not warm)
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 - 6 TBL coconut milk (I like Thai Kitchen Organic)


  1. Cream the butter until soft in a mixer for about two minutes.
  2. Add the sugar, vanilla, and three TBL of coconut milk.
  3. Add the remaining TBL of coconut milk as needed. If you are making roses, make sure the frosting is thick so it will hold its shape. If it gets too soft, place it in the refrigerator for about twenty minutes.
  4. When frosting cupcakes, place in the freezer for about one hour before decorating.

  1. Why do you need to make the cake form out of parchment paper? It seems like it would be hard to frost the top of the cakes that way, especially the first layer.

  2. Your cake is beautiful! How does the edible paper slice? Do you have a picture of the cake after slices were removed?
