What's the first thing you think about when getting ready to make a cake? Flour, perhaps? A cake tin? Yes, all likely contenders. But how about a printer?

Think about it: Wouldn't it be great to have a nifty device to help you add the finishing decorative touches to your creation? It's clearly something the designers at US cuttings machine firm Cricut had in mind when they designed their Cricut Cake Printer.

Instead of printing out ordinary documents, this nifty device can produce an array of cake decorations. According to tech website gixmag.com, the printer can cut shapes, words and motifs into frosted paper, dough, chocolate and even sweets.

Users simply select the letters and shapes they'd like to produce, press cut, and peel off the shapes for decoration. Hey presto. It comes in a cool red boutique style, and would look really funky in the kitchen! The website predicts the printer might help to inspire a "new wave" of cake competitions and children's parties.

Printers are increasingly being used in a variety of interesting projects. Recently, a 3D printer was used to make a vase, and an Epson one has printed vinyl sheeting to wrap around a Bugatti Veyron.
