City Ink Express may not be the first place you would expect to find silicone bakeware, but we’re just full of surprises! As you may or may not know we sell some wonderful edible ink products, so the transition across to silicone bakeware really isn’t as random as you may have first thought.

 

We are in fact one of the country’s leading suppliers of silicone moulds with 100s of designs available. Whether you’re making chocolate, candy, jelly, ice, mousses, pate, resin or wax we have a high quality mould that is suitable for your cookery and confectionary needs.

 

Using silicone for moulds is a relatively new invention, but one that has revolutionised the world of baking! You see unlike traditional metallic materials, silicone is seriously flexible – this allows you to easily pop out the contents of the mould fully intact! This also means no pre-greasing is required, no dark edges at the bottom of your baked goods, and the silicone bakeware itself doesn’t rust or stain.

 

Silicone really is the perfect material for moulds, and as such it has quickly taken over metal as the prime choice for bakeware. If you would like to work with the wonder that is silicone yourself, check out our extensive range and ease the more difficult sides of baking.

What is Edible Ink?


Posted by

One of City Ink Express's many specialities is edible ink. Some of you will be thoroughly educated on this marvellous invention, but unless you are planning to or already have personally used edible ink products, it's highly likely that you didn't know such a thing existed! This is where City Ink Express come in handy. In this blog post we're going to attempt to answer any possible questions you might have regarding what edible ink is, and then run you through which edible ink products we have available here. As always, if you have any questions what so ever then please don't hesitate to get in touch with us! 

So let's get down to it.

1. What is edible ink?

Edible Ink is printer ink which is actually edible (unsurprisingly). It consists of different edible food colours and edible ink can actually be placed in special edible ink printers, or even in some inkjet or bubblejet printers. Edible inks are flavourless and will not impair the taste of your food.

 

2. What is it used for?


Edible Ink is used to print images onto special edible paper which is then used on or in various confectionary. Edible paper dissolves when it comes in contact with a moist surface, but it maintains a high resolution. So any images you see on cakes or cupcakes were made using edible ink and edible paper! You can use edible ink on various pastries, cakes or cookies and if you get some edible ink and edible paper you can create amazing and professional looking confectionary within the comfort of your own home! 

 

3. What edible ink products do City Ink Express offer?


Now we've enlightened you and filled you in on the wonderful world of edible ink, which of these amazing products can you purchase from City Ink Express?

Edible Paper 


You might be well stocked up in edible ink, but unless you've got edible paper to print it on then it's not much use is it? It can be used as normal paper, you just pop it in your printer and as long as you've got edible ink then you're good to go! We offer a variety of different types of edible paper from rice wafer papers to edible decor papers, we've even got pre-cut decor paper for you to pop on to your delicious treats!
