“Message in a Cake” paste extruder 3D prints custom images right into your dessert (Video)

3D food printing is one of the most fun and accessible consumer applications of 3D printing technology—whether for creating custom branded 3D printed lollipops, or for pushing the limits of culinary innovation, there are tons of opportunities to explore. One of the most recent and creative examples is Daniel Wilkens’ ‘Message in a Cake’ 3D paste extruder, which has the ability to 3D print custom images or messages directly into a cake using a specially-created batter, meaning you only see the image once the first delicious slice has been cut. 3Ders.org spoke with Wilkens to find out his design concept as well as the 3D printing process behind creating your own Message in a Cake.

“Study and characterization of food matrices intended for 3D printing” – Presented by Danilo Spiga, Sardegna Ricerche

The presentation will be about six month testing several edible materials produced in the Sardinian’s companies with the 3d printing machine, to check the future potentialities of this technology with their product and, eventually, how the 3d printing techniques can improve their current production line setup. The companies that offered their product and hosted our extrusion tests, were from different food sectors such as: Pasta, Cheese, Turròn, Ice cream, Bakeries companies and some Chef. The last project’s part has been focused in the laboratory analysis of the printed product.

3D Food Printers that Will Feed the Future

We’re back again with another 3Ders Monday Warm-up, a weekly roundup of some of the biggest 3D printing trends, projects, products or ideas, in an easy-to-read format to help ease you into the busy workweek to come.

Last week, 3D Systems officially opened their new culinary innovation centre, the 3DS Culinary Lab, a learning, collaboration and exploration space, furnished with the ChefJet Pro 3D food printer, for leading chefs, artisans and mixologists to experiment with and push the boundaries of 3D printed food. This got me particularly excited about 3D printed food options, uses, and the rapidly expanding range of 3D food printers on the market today.

New 3D food printers convert marzipan into shapely eatables (Video)

Cookie cutters are so yesterday. Tomorrow’s biscuits will have 3D forms. A German start-up company has figured out a way to shape food with a 3D printer, and has developed printable food mixtures for a variety of printing processes.

Focusing on natural foods and funded to the tune of 40,000 euros (Bt1.6 million) by the crowd funding platform Kickstarter, Print2Taste’s machine, the Bocusini, is the world’s first plug & play 3D food printer and will cost in the region of 900 euros.
