Anyone have a kopykake?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
I have an opportunity to buy a kopykake KA300 (approx $200). I realize this is probably overkill for me since baking is just a hobby BUT does anyone have one and do you like it? Can you show me photos of what you've done with yours? Also, do you think that's a decent price? thanks!

I have the smaller version which is the 300XK projecter.Almost every cake in my gallery that requires a cartoon character etc is done with it.One of my best investments since I can't draw freehand.If you will be doing lots of outlining etc it is worth it.I have used it for cookies as well as fonts etc.

I'd be lost without my kopykake! I've only recently been using it for cookies, but it's been a huge time-saver. Decorating is just a hobby for me, too, but this piece of equipment is well worth the money!

I loved the KopyKake we used to have at the grocery store bakery I used to work at. We had a whole bunch of pictures the customer could choose from, trace it using the KopyKake & then airbrush. They turned out pretty cool. If I could afford it & I had the space I would definitely get one.

I bought one a few months back (found it on CraigsList for $100 - SCORE!) and I absolutely LOVE it! It's awesome for tracing, and more detailed work that I would probably never be able to do freehand. I'm just a hobby baker also, but I say if you've got a chance to snag one and you're comfortable with the price, go for it!

Thanks for the replies. I think I'm going to take the plunge....if it turns out that I don't use it I guess I can always try to resell it.

Maladymay (I hope I got your screen name right) Your cookies are adorable. did you use the kopykake for the monogram wedding favors you did or free hand those?

I got one on Craigs List as well! I use it for cookies. I'd like to be good at the tracing with icing like you all, but I'm not yet. So I use my edible markers with stick figures, and they turn out really cute and different. Here's some pics....

newb2: Those were long before the kopykake, but fortunately an "M" is a nice easy letter to do freehand icon_biggrin.gif

MariaK38: Those are adorable! I've never used edible markers before. Seems that they'd be much easier than piping royal details... I'll have to try em someday.

I love my Kopykake! I too am just a hobbyist but it allows you to make really cool stuff. These are some Pokémon cookies I did for someone's birthday.

thank you, maladymay! I"ve really enjoyed using the edible markers, but I still want to learn to use icing. If I ever get some free time, I'll practice!

I love the Pokemon cookies... you are so talented!

Joann Fabric stores are now carrying another brand 'Cricut'

http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog/productdetail.jsp?CATID=cat2064&PRODID=zprd_10021152a

they just had a sale for $299 so they will again in a month or two. I looked at the canon printer and they are running about $179.

I am thinking about buying a printer and projector. I only decorate for my grandchildren and now that the oldest is 5.. he wants spiderman cookies.

does any one have the projector or just using the printed sheets?
