We should all be aware now that the Ripple Coffee Printer is the premier way of printing on your coffee. What you might not know is that the Ripple also works well on a number of other surfaces, useful for food service. In practical terms, Ripple can print on just about anything that is flat and white or lightly-coloured. We’ve rounded up a few of the easiest surfaces for you to have a go with!

Ice Cream:

One of the best (and tastiest) surfaces we’ve found to print on is Ice Cream:

1. Start with a big dollop of Ice Cream to fill the bowl.
2. Grab a spatula or similar instrument to smooth the surface.
3. You’re aiming for a flat and level surface, any excess can be wiped away.
An ideal smooth surface!
4. Place the glass in the printer bed.
This is the set-up before printing.
5. Select the image for your design.
6. Start the printing process and wait 4–5secs for Ripple to finish.
7. Check the final print quality.
8. You’re good to serve!

As well as Ice Cream you can print on a number of different surfaces — you’re only limited by your imagination!

Cocktail Foam:

You may have already seen some of our prints on cocktails:

We use Ms Better’s Bitters Miraculous Foamer to produce a stable, white foam on the Cocktail. This gives us our canvas for printing whatever image we desire!

Edible Paper:

Edible paper is a really good surface to print on because it allows you to move out of the realms of drinks and into hard surfaces like cakes. Edible wafer paper is often used as a topper for Cupcakes for events including Birthdays or Weddings. Perfect as a unique and personalised wedding favour!

This Jimi Hendrix print would be great for a music-lover!
