This sheet of 24 edible illuminated initials from Medieval manuscripts will turn your cookies into masterpieces. These wafer papers are 1.5" x 1.5" each, alphabet letters A-X. (If you are dying to have Y and Z as well, drop me a note and I'll make a custom order for you).

Wafer paper images are placed onto cookies, which have been iced with Royal Icing, or covered with fondant. Wafer paper requires a solid, non-porous surface to adhere to, so un-iced cookies or soft frosting will not work. The edible images are "glued" on with a dab of corn syrup. Each set will come with step-by-step instructions.

Wafer paper is made from potato starch and is tasteless and odorless. It looks like paper, but melts when it comes in contact with moisture (or your mouth). It is also kosher.

When stored away from light and moisture, wafer paper will keep for roughly a year, in case you cannot decorate your cookies when you expected to.

The full how-to is on my blog at

These cookies will make everyone who sees them ask, "How did you make these!?"


Please note: the listing is for the wafer papers only, not for the finished cookies.
