Cut it into a square to help it stay flat. Your edible paper will curl as it cools. Use oven mitts to turn the plate upside down on the wax paper.
Microwave on high for 45 seconds. Sometimes, tapioca flour is also added during the preparation which imparts a sticky property to the rice paper. Remove the plate, then carefully peel the plastic wrap away. Edible rice paper can be used to make various types of cakes and rolls which can either be stuffed with spicy and sweet fillings and baked, steamed, or fried. Rice paper is usually sold in stores in the form of thin, circular sheets, wrapped in plastic. The paper puffs up as the water steams. Store 1–2 days in a zip-lock bag.
