i see this at parties, but i have no idea what the process is, and what kind of ink is used. Anyone know how it's done?
To continue Kelli's answer, the cartridge contains edible ink, which is essentially food coloring. The "paper" is edible starch -- potato or rice, similar to what you may find on European or Japanese confections.
oh i get it. thanks.
It is an edible transfer that is applied to the cake. You can print them at home with the proper paper and ink or you can order the transfer from a scanned photo and apply them yourself.
