Which is how you create your custom digital prints.
If you’re thinking about edible printing, be sure your know all four of the components – edible cartridges, edible inks, dedicated printer, and edible paper or frosting sheets.
Chocolate Molds are also known as candy molds, and can be purchased in a variety of styles, shapes and sizes. Whether you’re hunting for clean plastic molds for a celebration or molds for the holidays you’ll likely find what you’re looking for at InkEdibles.com. If you’re looking for a chocolate mold you can find them in several different kinds, and it will need to be tempered before molding, unless the candy coating needs to be melted and it is ready to use.
Clean plastic molds work great for candy coatings and molding chocolates. They can also be used repeatedly, but one must keep in mind they are not good for hot temperatures.

Now, for the fun part, let’s get the images to the chocolate!
Getting The Image Transfers to Chocolate
In order to get the image to the chocolate you’ll need InkEdibles™ ChocoSpray™ Coating. The InkEdibles™ ChocoSpray™ Coating is a product used for transferring your edible ink images to dark chocolate or milk chocolate. InkEdibles™ ChocoSpray™ Coating works to enhance the brightness and richness of the edible ink colors. It does this by creating a opaque background when it’s transferring edible prints from the InkEdibles™ Printable Chocolate Transfer Sheets to dark chocolate or milk chocolate.
To apply you can use a spray pump, airbrush, paint it on, or use a sponge to the dried edible ink print. You do this before applying the tempered chocolate. It’s recommended to use the InkEdibles™ ChocoSpray™ as a base mixed with clear liqueur, flavored extract, or alcohol.
