Edible printer

Hi is getting an edible printer worth it? And silly question but can you
Hook them up to your phone instead of a computer??


Hi Susan Forbes

If you're doing a lot of cakes which require printed imaging you'll find it a gift. If you need imaging occassionally, it's easy to buy them online. Shop around for a good suppplier.
I bought mine four years ago and I think it's had about a dozen outings! All my edible ink cartridges are out of date, I 'd have to get new ones and not really justify spending out on them.

Printers can be hooked up to phones. There are lots of online tutorials which show how to do it:

Your local mobile shop will also be able to help. 🙂


Thank you MadeitwithLove! That's great you can hook them to a phone,
I'll consider investing in one when I open my company!
