Kopykake projector cookies, pls share - Page 7

post #91 of 189
Hi!

I am based in UK and I am looking into purchasing a projector. Can somebody tell me what's the voltage of this machine? I know US has 110-120 V. We have 240V here in UK. The last time I used a machine from America, it just blew! My husband said I had black marks on my face! icon_sad.gif I'm just making sure this doesn't happen to me again.

Thanks!

Hi tm-treats
Mine is 110 but the box says you can buy 240v from that company I believe.
www.aswexpress.com.
Good luck

I would still love to see a tutorial with someone using their projector to transfer an image onto a cookie. I've done basic basic stuff like words but the pics i'm seeing here in the galleries are amazing and i'd like to see how they do it. Unfortuntely, there is nothing out there that shows this.

Thanks toleshed. sweetopia has a bunch of great tutorials. I would just like to see her, or anyone, actually using the projector. She shows an outline of what she's done and mentions she did it with the projector....unless i missed something.

I just bought one but haven't had a chance to use it yet. But heres my take on it:

Put your clipart or picture in the projector head. With an edible marker, trace out the design on your cookie. Then with your pastry bag, fill in the design. I've just had so much going, I haven't had time to use it. But when I do, I'll try to take pics.

Earlier in this thread there was a link to Sweetopia's blog, where she has a couple of tutorials using the projector.

im gonna bite my tongue and invest in the k1000 its another 150 but i wont have to deal with shadows and darkness. should i get the clamp or the base board. whats the differences? Also i have a question about when you decorate the cookie. I tend to move the cookie around when i decorate so i dont have to move my hand much but if the picture is in place that means i cant move the cookie. or if there is shadow how do move the projector without loosing the design on the cookie? thanks

I just tried to use the projector and am very confused. I wanted to write happy birthday evenly onto a cake i made. I wrote it WORD, enlarged it to the largest font (72) and printed. The letters were still too small for me to pipe. I tried typing in Publisher and chose the landscape design so that the letters would be across the rectangle and not down. (i made a rectangle cake) When i put the printed letters in the box, they were too wide for the clamps. I've gotta be doing something wrong here.
How do you gals print your messages?

Because this is a big ticket item, I've been researching it and I'm getting the K1000 projector (hopefully within the next couple months.) The main differences are the lighting so it eliminates the shadows. The picture is projected onto the cake or cookie and you trace around it (much like a pattern transfer.) You shouldn't have this problem (moving the cookie around to avoid shadows) if you get the K1000 over the 300 unit.
