Well, you buy the printer at your local office supplies store. Canon and Epson are the two supported brands. Supported means that there are cartridges for them. Other than that, it's just your choice.

I went to www.kopykake.com Looked at the printers they sold the edible inks for... found the one I liked and got it at Target for $28! Now I just have to order the ink and paper and I'm ready to go. HTH

You are going to have so much fun with it! Will you be printing on occassion for family and friends? Or will you be printing weekly for customers?
There are two models out there for the choosing. Epson and Canon. I have been printing for over 10 years now and prefer the Canon because of its removable printhead. What that means is that if your printer clogs, you will be able to remove the part that clogs and clean it. That being said, what is more important is your ink and the company you purchase it from. The ink needs to have a good reputation for vibrancy and quality against clogging. I suggest you call any company you are considering purchasing from and talk to them. Ask them about their inks and clog records. By talking with the company you will know. Their expertiece on the phone and any info they give you will help you make your decision.
This is a good thread on CC that may help you as well.
Here is a recent discussion regarding edible printing, choosing a printer and other thoughts. There are a wide variety of opinions which will be helpful.
Please feel free to PM me if you have any questions
