Hello All, I have budget to either buy a airbrush or a printer with edible ink , what would you suggest as more useful based on your personal experience.
Think back to past cakes, which one did you wish you had more? It'll depend on your type/style of cakes.
I use my airbrush for literally every cake.....I bought and spent over $400.00 on a Edible Image printer,inks,paper etc and within 5 months it was leaking and wrecked everything.I threw it all out...I have had my airbrush for 8 years...Not one issue.I would never invest in a EI system again....I would invest in the airbrush..once you play with it and find out what it can do...they are fantastic!!
Wouldn't do without my airbrush, never ever. I have tons of fun with it and use it for almost all my cakes!
I've had my EI printer for a few years and have used it on a fair amount of cakes. Even if you aren't using the EI's on YOUR cakes, you can always sell images on Ebay or something of the sort.
As far as the airbrush goes, I've had mine for a few weeks and have only tested it. However, I can already tell I will be able to find ways to use it with upcoming cake designs. I'm excited!
I use both about the same amount and like both equally. I haven't had any problems with either of them.
Thanks everyone for spending the time and giving your input! I think I'll get an airbrush first and later invest in a printer.
