HOW TO MAKE ANKARA CAKE DESIGN.
To achieve d ankara design u will need to do some printing work.

Now we have different ways to do d printing.
The first way is doing EDIBLE PRINTING
But note that if u r doing edible printing it is quite expensive, A page of edible printing now ranges btw 2,000 nd 2,500 and it is A4 size. Dat size might not be enough to cover d cake u want to design. So u might end up printing like 2 to 3 copies, now calculate dat by 2,500. Except ur client is ready to pay.
Another way is PRINTING ON ART PAPER
Art paper has d texture of paper used to print ur normal pictures. It is stronger than the photocopy paper. And u can easily print it from those who do printing jobs especially the printing press shop. Most business centers dont have d art paper. Now d art paper has A3 size which is bigger than A4, this can cover cake very well. It also has A4 size. This printing is just about 600 naira depending on your location. The paper it thick and cant be soiled quickly either by water or oil.
The third way is printing from d business centre using d normal ordinary paper. Most business centres have only the A4 coloured printer. And it is around 100 – 300 naira depending on ur area. If you are able to get business center that can print on A3 size you can also use it.
NOTE: if you use normal printing paper it is very light and can be easily soiled.
NOW AFTER PRINTING YOUR DESIGN, DO NOT FOLD IT, KEEP IN AN ENVELOPE.
