Printing on Cakes
There is no doubt that cake printing has become more and more popular over the years. Maybe you can remember getting a Spiderman or Barbie cake for our 5th birthday?
But on the West Coast, where do you go to get a cake like this without having to drive all the way to Cape Town?
Designer cakes can also be very expensive. Our solution to both these problems: Do it Yourself.
Let us print your icing sheets or if this is something you are going to need often we can even look at organising you your very own cake printer.
Whether it's a birthday for kids or older people, a wedding anniversary or even a bachelor party adding that "nostalgic factor" can make a big difference.
It used to be Location Location Location. Now with the dawn of the internet it doest always matter where you are. Today it's about Branding Branding Branding.

There are two types of edible ink.
The First one: edible ink used freehand.
It means that cake decorators have various options, such as bottles, or pens that enable them to draw, paint, and spray, and pictures, and textures on a cake directly.
If you consider yourself an artist and know how to draw or paint well, then you can use these edible inks with ease.
But most of us can’t do this and for us, there is option 2.
They work exactly the same as regular printers, but there is obviously a difference. It simple is able to process and print on materials that are safe for our consumption.
You can create and download a picture from the internet, and print copies on an edible paper. Then cut the design using scissors or craft knife as per your choice.
So you don't just need a once off cake - you want to do this often.
Then you must know that there are various edible printers are available on the market.
Here are some tips that can help you in buying the right one:
You must check whether it is designed by a reputable company. When you are looking at the different edible-ink printers that are available, read reviews so that you can have an idea about the reputation in the market.
The model and make you select depends on what you are going to print. Are you going to print in large or small format? Quality of print capable of High Definition details? Are there unlimited colour options... These things will lead you to the final decision.
Don’t simply rush out and purchase any printer. You have to make sure that it is compatible with edible inks that are available. Some brands will sell you a great printer but never have the edible ink and paper in stock.
It is important to select a printer that comes with removable print heads.
Access to clean the parts will not make it last longer but keep hygienic for consumption purposes.
