You can still get Dymotape machines. I use mine all the time. The
simple principle employed by the device of embossing letters into
strip of plastic has now been taken up in the world of cooking
equipment with the launch of the Pastry Dymo Machine.
The pastry for the machine comes prepacked
with the coiled strip
being protected by a thin grease proof paper backing. As it can't
stored for an indefinite period of time, various lengths are
to reduce wastage.
Pastry Dymo replaces the roll of plastic tape with the one
made of pastry. It's a slightly larger machine to cope with the
bulk of the pastry roll, but otherwise works in the same manner,
with the pastry advancing as each letter is stamped unto its
The pastry strip emerges from the machine in exactly the same
manner as that of the plastic strip with the selected words and
letters stamped into its surface. These can then be added to cakes
or buns to create various baked messages and greetings, or dipped
soup like elongated bread sticks.
||Excellent, I'll take two.
||If the device had an extruder-type section which forced the pastry out in a thin strip directly before the embosser, then it could be loaded by the user with freshly-made pastry as required, thus minimizing waste.
||True, but pastry is quite dense and would require enormous
pressure, and this would also diminish the comparison with
the original Dymo with its drop in cartridge system.
||Much more sensible than a pastry dynamo. Let me
print out a hot cross bun.
||I sense this idea reaching Martha Stewart followers and pies
with words like "happy holidays" written as a grid on them.
||Bleach... "Happy holidays." Just because she went to prison
doesn't mean we have to banish her followers there, too.
