Reply to "Getting the Color Right on Edible Images"

Also, if you are going to try and clean the print head like I told you, make sure it's COMPLETELY dry before replacing in the printer (I am pretty sure they said for 24 hours)

Edible printers are such a head ache some times!! Sorry that you had to purchase a whole new one...but if it clogs again, you'll know what to do.

I had already baked the cookies so I had to go with what I could print.
