    Alternative Printing System

    Not sure if this is the right place or not. I have been watching a series called Cake Boss and today I saw a really neat photo print system. Feed the photo in, do your photo adjustments and hit the print function and out comes the print. The "paper" is I think foundant or some other icing so if you don't like the results, just pop it into your mouth. No fuss, muss or waste and no environmentally unfriendly chemicals.

    I want one !!!

    Yes, my sister in law decorates cakes in shops, but is not computer literate. the first time she described this a few years ago it was like some kind of magic to her. I explained it was a variant of ink jet printing. Some are direct on fondant, and recently she has also told me of one that you transfer like a dye diffusion print onto an icing reciever sheet so you can use and ordinary ink jet printer, albeit one fitted with food safe inks.
    my real name, imagine that.

    I think this matter should better be discussed at EPUG (Edible Photography User Group)

    I looked for that group but could not find it. I'd put on a hundred pounds with one of these, I can see me printing my estimated 3,000 prints and slides. Guess it would make a heck of an interesting cake. Hey maybe an anniversary cake for the development of photography.
