Kopykake projector cookies, pls share

post #1 of 189
Thread Starter 
My DH wanted to buy me a gift for my BD, and my wish is to get a projector for cookie/cake decorating. If you have one, would you please tell me what kind, and how happy are you with it. And also would you like to share with me some of your work? Maybe quick tutorial, do you first trace it with edible pen and then outline, flood? Or do you work directly with RI under the projector. I would really appreciate your experience here. Thank you!

I have a KopyKake projector, and love it! While I don't use it much for cookies (I used it on the gnomes in my photos), I use it extensively for cakes. If using it for cookies, I would recommend tracing the design with edible pens (the lighter color ones work best). If there isn't a lot of detail, you could even use a pencil....they're non-toxic.

How are they used on cookies? Is the design traced right onto the cookie or do you have to transfer it?

what kind of projector do you have? I saw some very cool cookies, it looks to me, that it could replace stenciling, which I am not good at. I would like to do some more interesting cookies, than just trace and flood the cutter shape. I would love to see some work if anybody wanted to share.

The model of KopyKake projector I have is the 520 watt one. It's hard to read the model type, but I think it says 1000. I wouldn't give it up for anything, and I would replace it in a heartbeat if it ever quit working. I doubt you would regret buying one....there are some good deals on ebay if you are patient.

This is very interesting. I'd love to see more samples of cookies where this is used.

the two kopykake projectors used for cakes are the 300KX and the 1000K. the 300kx has one light bulb, the other has 2 light bulbs. These are photography lightbulbs that are 500W, very very bright. with the 300kx you may need to turn the light off in your room and close the blinds to see the projected image. the other one does not have to do that. i use mine all the time on my cakes, and i have used it for cookies too, and fondant plaques. Its an item i would not part with and highly recommend.

To those of you that use your projectors, how do you keep your self or shadow out of the way of the picture ? I find it hard to keep myself from getting in my own way!
I know that sounds funny but I get so annoyed that Im always in my own way and blocking the light on the cake !
Thanks for any reply!

Fiddlesticks- what model do you have?

I have a Kopykake also, and like Gemini, wouldnt trade it for anything in the world!! It's GREAT for writing, spacing, etc!!

I first tried to get a cheaper model from Michaels with a 40% off coupon and it was AWFUL!! Like you mentioned, Fiddle, my hand/shadow was ALWAYS getting in the way of the light, and I couldnt get anything done at all!! I returned it immediately. The Kopykake is a million times better AND you can use it in real light (as opposed to dark like other projectors).

sweetcakes, i was just looking at your photos and am truly amazed. How do you get your piping of RI to be so precise no matter how small or close the designs are?
