If you don't have an edible ink printer, and you need a dark piece of wafer paper, what should you do?

You can also color the paper with gel colors mixed with some vodka (thanks to Nicole of Frosted Moon Confections for this tip.)
You can also use this method of making veined petals and use colored vodka. The petals will absorb the color and that's what they'll be when they dry.
