Wilton's Sugar Sheets Storage Information
Before you get started with sugar sheets, it’s good to know how they should be properly stored, as they are very sensitive to the elements (heat, cold and moisture). Storing them properly will ensure that they’re flexible and in good condition when you use them.
The sheets come in resealable packaging and are attached to a clear backing (sort of like stickers or labels). Only remove the backing from the portion that you’ll use, as the sheets will store better on the backing.
After you’ve removed the portion of the sheet you’d like to use, place the unused portion back into the resealable package right away — don’t let it sit out while you work. Press out any excess air and seal using the bag’s built-in seal.
Don’t store different designs in the same bag, as they may bleed into one another.
Store in a cool, dry place, but do not refrigerate or freeze, as this can dry the sheets out.
Wilton's how to rehydrate dried out sugar sheets
Only cut the portion of the sheet you’ll use immediately and keep the remainder of the sheets on the plastic backing, sealed securely in their reclosable package.
If your sheet has become brittle, don’t despair! Here is a method to rehydrate it and make it usable:
Cut the portion of the sheet you will use and peel away the plastic backing. Brush the shiny (back) side of your sugar sheet with room temperature water. The Wilton water brush allows for great control when applying water to Sugar Sheets, making it a fantastic tool for rehydrating the sheets. Be sure to completely cover the sheet with an even coat of water – not too much, not too little.
Allow the sheet time to rehydrate, which will take from 15 to 30 minutes. I recommend checking the sheet at 15 minutes and if it is pliable again, it is ready to use. The sheet may need more time, but be careful that your sheet does not get too wet.
When your sheet is ready, cut or punch your design and apply to your cake or treat right away.
