How Do They Do That?

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
I've recently seen wedding cake cookies with the bride and groom names and the date of the wedding printed on each one.
I've been trying to figure out how they do that and so perfectly.

I do use frosting sheets to print photos and stuff so i would know how to tell for that but it didn't look like it.

It looked like it was stamped on but there doesn't seem to be anything out there that gives the ability to interchange letters and fonts for each specific occasion.

I've been asking and searching and emailing.... but no one seems to know how it's done without printing onto frosting sheets. Can someone help?

I have been wondering the same thing myself. Maybe somebody can link us to that topic.

There have been a few threads about this, try and search for Sweet Art

This is the companies website though

www.sweetart.com/jetspecs.html

It's a great machine, but the colors aren't very vivid, red in particular

Thank you so much but i still don't think that that is what was used. If you can see in the pics, it was put onto different shapes of cookies including the purse and wedding cake cookie. There's gotta be some stamping going on here.

luv2bake....there is no edible paper involved in the Sweet Art machine, it is like stamping. This would be great for someone specializing in edible products, but I think most of us will have to stick to edible images.

I understand there is no paper and thank you for responding.
I took a look at the video demo they provide and it's pretty similar to using frosting sheet except it prints directly on the cookie.
BUT, i don't see how something like that can print onto odd shaped cookies like the purse or wedding cake.

Hmm, good question. There must be some sort of set-up. Give them a quick email and let us know what you find out. It looks like a neat system to have.

You could try to use a stencil......by making your own with the scrapbook hole punchers. Place it over your cookie and brush on your color just like painting a stencil on anything else. I don't think there will be many font choices but you will have the exact same print on each cookie. Good luck!

Hi
I was going to suggest a stencil also. If you look at my photos the cookie with "its a girl" and "Happy Birthday" are done with a stencil. It would probably look better if you stencil in solid and with a dark color like black to get the stamped effect. These stencil I bought ready but I also cut my own. I will try to cut one on my cricut personalized tonight and get back to you to see if it works. Also could it be an edible image?
Anyway, I would like to know also cause I am going to make so wedding cake cookies for a friend in August and would like to personalize them also. I was going to use an edible marker but this would be alot easier.

I started that original thread as I saw those exact same cookies and loved the idea. Taniabanana is right - that is done with a SweetArt machine. You can put any size/shape cookie under the inkjet and it will work. You just have to make a template to set under it so that you know exactly where the ink will end up. This is a cool machine. Out of my price range, but so cool!

Interesting to hear about the colors not being vivid. Glad Taniabanana brought that up! That's not good to hear that for that amount of money. icon_sad.gif

amifsud, i you can let me know how you make your own stencils, i'm interested to hear. To order custom stencil for each order received is just ridiculous.
No, they're definately not edible images as i already work with them and would know how to recognize it.
Thanks you all. I guess it's not doable unless willing to spend a fortune. How much is the sweetart, by the way?
