They only have a few left at the Walmart near my house for $99.00. For those of you who use it for cakes, what has your experience been? Thanks

It is a great printer and a great price. It is a model that is going out of date, but you should have no worries about getting cartrdiges for it. I have used the new model the mx5220 and it seems to print faster. But edible printing is pretty basic so you cant go wrong with either machine. What is important is the inks and paper you choose. I would recommend the sponge free version of cartridges. THey hold more ink then the sponged brands and are refillable directly in the printer. The food grade plastics make things more hygenic as well. Make sure you print something at least once per week once you get it, even if it is on regular paper. Please let me know if you have any other questions, I will be gald to help. Have fun!

I have the Canon Pixma560 and I love it. It has not clogged on me (ever!). It's a great printer.

I own one too and I love it! It prints great pictures for cakes. I have also no issues with clogging. Ink has lasted too. I recommend it. You won't be disappointed. thumbs_up.gif

Canon is really a great product! They are the most common source for edible printers.

Here is a picture that I did with my CanonIP4700
