Cricut Cake vs Edible Printer which should I buy???

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I have no idea what to do with some extra money that I've saved. I could try to purchase a Cricut cake on Ebay or I could invest in an edible printer. I just don't know which one will give me more bang for my buck in the long run.

Any ideas or issues for me to think about would be greatly appreciated.

I have both. If I had to choose, I'd go with the edible printer. I like my Cricut Cake....but I LOVE my edible printer.

I'd get the printer and save up for a silhouette cutter. It can do everything a cricut can do plus you can print and cut. If you buy it from Linda McClure it comes with a special blade and A DVD that will teach you step by step to use all the features. It's a handy companion for an edible image printer.

Edible printer is a very, very smart investment you will not regret it at all. Your money will be well spent.

I was thinking printer too. Ok, let me ask this is it better to convert a printer vs buying directly from a company?

My vote is for buy from a dealer who sells and edible printer, I purchased mine from Photo Frost I was glad I did. I had trouble with not printing I called them they were able to help me. They told me what might be wrong and told me what I could do to correct the problem. If I purchased the printer from Best Buy there is no way they would have been able to help, When I wanted to up grade printer they treated me more than fair.

Exactly what Michael said. I have the Canon MP560 and icingimages is a world of help. They also have very good ink (gold label).

My cricut works just fine. You just have to use the right medium and process it correctly.

The printer is a lot cheaper and you will have so much fun with it. I love mine. I guess I don't use my Cricut as much as others, but sometimes it just seems like a glorified cookie cutter.

Yeah...there's a very steep learning curve with the Cricut, but you can do some nice stuff with it. Probably not right out of the box...but with practice. You can just do so MANY great things with edible images. I wouldn't take anything for my system!

ok now I'm bummed! I have been saving my pennies for a cake cricut and now my little bubble just got burst icon_surprised.gif Does everyone really feel that the edible image is THAT much better? I would really like to know the pros and cons of each machine are and what makes one better than the other?
