If someone can point me to a great VERY easy edible image machine AND all the stuff to use with it .. I will trust enough to go ahead and order it tonight!!! I want one so bad and I'm tired of waiting (plus DH gave me the go ahead) I do have a limit though...

KopyKake is a good source for the supplies-food color cartridges and wafer paper/icing sheets.

They list the kinds of printers that accept the cartridges they have available. You don't need their fancy software or setup.

Thanks,

Here's where you will find what printers will work with edible image ink tanks: http://www.kopykake.com/documents/PrinterInks-Xref.pdf

You cannot use a printer that has had regular, non-edible printer ink go through the printhead. You would need to replace the printhead. Regular inks contain heavy metals and other dangerous contaminants that you do not want contaminating your edible images.
