I'm looking to by a printer for producing edible images. I have resisted so far as I don't do this type of cake very often and understood the print heads can clog if not used frequently. Previously I have purchased edible images mail order which was fine. However this weekend I am doing a F1 Ferrari car demonstrated on the Paul Bradford website 2 weeks ago. The difficulty is that I don't know the size of the images until I get the cake at least made and carved (Saturday) and by then it will be too late to get the images posted.
So out of desperation I have decided to bite the bullet and buy a printer. I think Canon is the way to go but would appreciate any advice from fellow decorators in the UK as to model and how they perform. In the US it seems they are moving to cartridges with no sponges which apparently helps with clogging issues but I don't think these are available here.
Time is running out so any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
