Culinary adds cookie printer to kitchen

Students give opportunity to use advanced technology in culinary classes
Truth Dukes
Texas High School’s culinary cookie printer designs a cookie on Nov. 14, 2023. Culinary recently purchased the printer.

During the 2023 school year, the Texas High Culinary Arts Academy added a new addition to their kitchen that combines the warm smell of baked goods with design: a cookie printer.

“A Cookie printer is an edible ink inkjet printer for sugar cookies or anything edible,” culinary director and chef Cory House said. “It is 100% customizable [and] can print designs on the cookie like pictures of people, logos, and any text.”

This addition allows students to add more decoration variety for their foods.

“I go in and create the design on photoshop or on a similar program,” House said. “It is as easy as ctrl P. We can print on any picture or design almost at any time. Getting the cookie printer has allowed us to elevate the program and what we are able to offer clients.” 

 The cookie printer will increase the quality and output, making culinary students better equipped for the future.

“We wanted a cookie printer so we could get things done quicker and more efficiently,” junior Madison Turner said. “We wanted to make more elaborate designs.”

The cookie printer not only added some interesting designs to their class, but it also helped the Culinary Academy grow and reach new audiences and clients.

Getting the cookie printer opens up a new market for us

— Chance Ferguson

 “Getting the cookie printer opens up a new market for us,” junior Chance Ferguson said.“As far as marketing it is a great tool to promote Texas High and Texas High Culinary of Arts Academy. We can sell cookies with a variety of designs on them to make an even bigger profit.” 

The Texas High Culinary Academy recently encountered some learning curves to overcome.“The biggest learning curve was getting a template design to be the same size as the cookie [and] making sure you measure [the] cookie,” House said. “Also just making sure the template and everything inside the computer matches the cookie size. We have to make sure the design gets printed on straight and fits the cookie itself.”

Receiving the cookie printer allowed students to see the future more clearly. 

“I’m just really excited for the cookie machine and what that can lead us into,” Ferguson said. “All the new avenues and the potential of making more personalized cookies for people.”
