The email notice I just received for your post bobwonderbuns was not an actual link and not highlighted. I had to copy and paste into my browser for it to work.

is the correct projector the K1000 artist opaque projector(graphic)? because the 300 series lists it for cake decorating as opposed to something else, is there more than one version of the K1000? I don't want to pay for the wrong model?



Ruthi - I have the K1000 and I only know of one model. A call to Kopycake might clear up any questions. They were very helpful when I called in doing my research.

Hi!
I haven't been around for a while but just saw this thread so thought I'd jump in and let you know that I LOVE my KopyKake projector. I'm not talented in the drawing department so it really helps me pipe images on my cookies. (much easier and faster).

I have the 300 and am happy with it (although I'd love not having to worry about shadows too Tracy!). It's doable though if you're concerned about spending more money. I'll eventually be posting how I make mine on my blog.

Here are a few links if you'd like to see some cookies made with the projector:

ok My question now is this. For those of you that have the Kopykake 300, do you have the Base Unit or the Clamp Unit and which is the better of the 2?

Welcome to CC MsJeannie, glad to have you on board! icon_lol.gif When looking for a good cookie to do this sort of decorating on, look for anything with the word "rolled" in it. It will have a different ratio of sugar/butter/flour than a regular sugar cookie (which breaks easier and spreads like crazy.) The internet is full of "rolled" cookie recipes -- find one and experiment. Change the flavors if you like. Make it your own! thumbs_up.gif

I, too, was wondering the same exact thing! I am ready to order the 300XK today, but really not sure what the difference is with the clamp model. They are both the same price no matter which website I look on and no one really explains the difference in their descriptions. Does it really need a clamp to hold it to the table? Or is it heavy enough to just plop onto a steady work surface and start piping away?

i want one i guess i will have to wait til it goes back on sale. i hope i dont regret getting the 300x model
post #85 of 189
sugarinspired, I dont think you'll regret it! I've used mine on pretty much all of the recent cookies in my album and it's been great! There are times it would be handy to have the 1000, but for me, I just cant justify the price when I've had great success with the 300.

I was wondering if most of you use a circle or a square to put your design on using the Kopykat, since most cookie cutters do not come with a design to copy?

You can use whatever you want! I like squares and circles because it allows me to find whatever image I want and transfer it onto a "neutral" shape.

The KopyKake is also great when you dont have a cookie cutter, but you still want a specific design. I used it to cut all of the carnival cookies in my photos. Just put the whole sheet of rolled cookie dough (I use it straight from the freezer) under the projector and cut your shape icon_smile.gif This way, your cookie is always the perfect size to match your design.
