Q: I am getting an error message when trying to upload my image to place an order. Why is this?
A: This is because your image file size is too large, internet connection is slow
because you are using a mobile device not able to upload data as required to place a custom order.
Please check the file size of your image and ensure it is under 2MB and please use a laptop or PC with full browsing capabilities (not an iPhone/iPad etc),
Simply select to email your image file/s to us after you have placed your order. You just reply to your Order Confirmation email and attached the file/s required.
Q: How can I see that my image file has uploaded correctly?
A: Follow the instructions during checkout to view the image file
click on the file link in your Order Confirmation email.
If you have uploaded the wrong image, please email the correct one to us asap.
Q: What image file types are acceptable for custom edible images?
A: For best results, please supply us/upload a JPEG file or PDF.
Word/Office Suite programs are not acceptable, these file types compromise the image quality on the icing sheet. If you upload a MS Office file, this may delay your order as we may need to contact you for another file to be able to process your order, if we cannot successfully convert the file to another usable format.
Q: Can you edit or change the image file I upload for my Custom Icing edible image order?
A: No sorry we can not. We do not provide an image creation or image editing service. If you would like a quote for any image editing we will be happy to put you in contact with our Graphic Designer. Fees start at approx $50 per hour or part thereof.
Q: How do I put the Custom Icing edible image on the cake?
A: We supply a full instructions with your order. The icing sheets are very easy to use. You don't need to be a professional cake decorator to create a beautiful cake with our Custom Icing edible images.
Q: For licensed edible image cake toppers: Can a message be added or the image made into a different shape or size?
A: No, sorry. It is illegal and against copyright for a licensed edible image to be changed or reproduced in any other format other than what is available on our website. If you have seen what you are after elsewhere, buyer beware, as this would be an inferior and illegally sold product.
Q: What are your icing sheets made from and are they rice paper?
A: We only use Premium Icing Sheets that we import. Rice paper is a much more fragile product and it does not taste as nice as our icing sheets that are made from real sugar to compliment your cake.
Q: How is the order packed to avoid damage in transit?
A: We use rigid cardboard envelopes that we source for this specific purpose. We have never had an order damaged in transit.
Q: 2MB is a small file size to upload for my Custom Icing edible image, will a High Resolution image be better?
A: No. A 2MB file is sufficient to create a clear edible image. If the icing sheets are saturated with colour from a high resolution image, this distracts from the clarity of the image as the edible ink soaks into the icing sheet too much.
Q: I know what I would like to put onto the Custom Icing sheet, but I don't have the image I want, can you supply what I request?
A: No sorry. You must supply the image that you would like put onto a Custom Icing sheet. This is because you need to have the right to reproduce the image or be prepared to take full responsibility for the reproduction of the image onto the icing. See our COPYRIGHT IMAGES page for more details.
Q: How much is delivery?
Q: I need more information, can I contact you?
A: Yes, certainly. Please contact us by live chat, email or phone. The details can be found on our Customer Service page.
