lol ok I want to know the proper way but im thinking maybe using an edible marker to draw on the cookie and then tracing over? Wish someone had the right answer lol

I'm pretty sure they are done with a projector.

I use my KopyKake projector to transfer & outline images. Works on cookies and cakes. Others I've heard used a stick pin to prick outlines.

The first one looks like a transferred piece(like done off the cookie then applied after it was dried) to me.

I had success with a pin prick method...printed the image on card stock. Cut the parameter of the shape and size of the cookie. Place the printed cardstock on a piece of fun foam(this allows the piercing to have more depth on the opposite side...as opposed to doing it on a firmer foam which would make the piercings be more flat on the back side). Cut the dough. lay pierced pattern on top and lightly press the pattern. It left the pattern embedded in the dough that I was able to follow once the cookies were baked and cooled.

If a large enough pin were used, airbrushing over it will leave the pattern on the cookie surface...

Here is a thread I started a little while ago that threw around some ideas on how to get found patterns onto cookies:

I havn't had a chance to properly try an image out yet with the different techniques on it but hope to one day

What if you did a buttercream transfer like they do on cakes?

Those are likely done with a projector. Have your bags all ready to go and when the projector projects the image, just trace with the color icing you want to use. Depending on what medium you use you probably could stack them. Just let them dry thoroughly first.

I've done something like this using a RI transfer that i made on wax paper. The only problem with RI transfers is that either the transfer or the cookie isnt completely flat. I've also used RI to help build up the confidence to free hand it since I know what the blobs need to look like before putting in the finer details.

Hope this helps.

Okay I must be stupid. I have seen posts about using a projector to transfer patterns, but I just can't picture how this is done. I picture you holding a cookie up in the air and piping while the image projects on the cookie. icon_confused.gif Could someone kindly explain how you use a projector for cookies?

Thanks,
Kathi

Kathi, I don't think I'd be able to use a projector for cookies...maybe one cookie. I just couldn't see using it for lots of them.
