Where can I get an edible image printed? Do you think my local grocery store or Walmart would print an image for me?

Try Baskin Robins if you have them out there. Some of them use them for their ice cream cakes. Our Baskin's just quit doing it so I got mine at a local wedding cake bakery they charged me $10 for what turns out to be a 7 x 10 inch print.

Wow, $2.80? I'm gonna have to check with my local Wal-Mart. Sounds like a pretty good deal to me! Thanks for the tip. icon_surprised.gif

Wow! thats an amazing price. I had checked at our local grocery store chain a while back and they would do it for me for $7 but their machine was broken and I havent needed it. I'm gonna check the walmarts near me, there are 2 that have a bakery.

My local grocery store will sell me one for $10.00, but I will check with Walmart...... so far, they won't even sell me a BOX, so I'm thinking an edible image is out of the question.... icon_lol.gif

My local Walmarts will not even sell me the cake decopacs individually, so I feel your pain!! My Baskin Robbins and Mary Moos (another ice cream store) would not either- I got my last one at Martins grocery, but it was about $10.00- next time, I will just do FBCT instead !! thumbs_up.gif

Ugh, I called several places. Two Walmarts had a printer but they were not working. The third Walmart had a working printer but the lady I talked to wasn't that knowlegeable about it and said she would have to talk to her manager.

Do you have to give them a physical picture, like a 4x6? I found the picture I want browsing on the internet. I have to do a cake with a Farmall B tractor for a small BBQ. Since I don't want to spend 10 hours playing with fondant and boards and stressing myself out, I thought an edible image was a good solution. It doesn't seem to be working out. Can anyone explain the whole edible image process to me??? What do they need in order to produce it?

As a former Walmart decorator....not only CAN they do this but there is even a key code for them to print out the bar code!!! The decopacs also have a code and they come up and sell for $5.00. At least hear in NE Fla they are that much, but the code would be and is a universal/company wide code. Just and fyi.....

Walmart is a good choice if the one near you will do them. I just went to one, took in a 5 x 7 color pic they scanned it into 8 x 11 for $5. She also told me you can get any deco pac cake kit for $5.

Unfortunately we in central NJ don't have any Super Walmarts, so no bakeries in our stores. I don't even think NJ has a Super Walmarts (yet) or Target Superstores either. I don't know what the problem is in NJ getting these stores other than we have a million supermarkets. Oh well...when I need it I'll try the supermarket or Baskin Robins.

Our WalMart here will do the image and it is left to be done at the will of the bakery staff you talk to. My DD printed FREE coloring page, scaned it, and used Microsoft paint to color it. She wanted a cake made with her new picture to show DH, I think father's day. Wal-Mart would not do it because it looked like a copyright. "It came of the computer, right? Oh, then it is a copyright". They do have the codes to sell the decopacs and images, some places don't have the staff with the common sense and ability to do so however.
