Just FYI, peeps, if sugar/frosting sheets are not fresh, they will crumble. I do not buy them at the store anymore. I buy them directly from Wilton to ensure they are fresh.
I would like to know if this is only for cakes or can i use the canon ip300 for edible images for lollipops ? Please let me know Thanks,,,,
There are generally 2 types of printers: 1) Printers with printheads in the printer, and 2) Printers that utilize cartridges that have printheads on the cartridges
Those printers that utilize cartridges with printheads on the cartridges are typically not good for edible ink printing. This is due to 2 reasons:
1) Printheads are where the clogs happen (and its easier to clog a cartridge printhead than a printer's printhead), and 2) There are virtually no compatible cartridges on the market for models that have printheads on the cartridges. This matters, because you need compatible (new) cartridges to use with edible inks, since you do not want to use an cartridge that was once contaminated with regular ink. So this limits edible ink printing to certain models (some Canon's for example, like the ip3600 and others).
Hi Inkedibles what about the ip3600 ? are you saying its abad printer for rdible inks i just purchased it :(
Abbietee, I've owned a Canon IP3600 for a year now and it works great! I just got done printing my own butterflies on rice paper for the 1st time the other day and the printer did great job on that as well.
I have a Canon iP3600 and it works great! I use KopyKakes frosting sheets with this printer. The sheets and the printer as well as the edible inks, I purchased from Amazon. My only problem at first was removing the frosting sheets from the backing after several tires and a lot of google searches I found the freezer method works best for me, although being in the tropics I find I have to work very fast in placing it on the cake or it starts to crack and tear.
Which side of the wafer paper goes on the cake the ruff side or smooth side.
please help!!! i have a new canon ip7250 printer with edible ink
everything is perfect beside puprple and pink colours
i change my red colour made all the cleaning types in the printer but nothing changed.
Orlyharel I have the same problem, and it was thanks to your comment that i realized why my images were not coming out. They do not like hues of purple or pink. I have no idea why but im going to contact sugar shack tomorrow who i bought the canon from and hopefully they will have an answer for us!
