Anyone have a kopykake? - Page 2

post #16 of 20
I got the K1000 a few months ago and I'm still playing with it. I've been slammed with wedding cakes lately so I haven't had as much time to play as I would like. I love mine though. But I am still having trouble with shadows, but like I said I have to play with it. Sweetopia just did a fabulous tutorial on her site if anyone is interested. icon_biggrin.gif

I bought the 300XK and got it a week and a half ago, been dying to have one for 2 yrs. now........finally made enough money doing cakes to warrant the purchase and have been SO BUSY decorating cakes I haven't had a chance to even assemble the thing!!! Crazy how things work out!


Those cookies are all amazing.........does everyone just literally put the pic. on the projector and stick the cookie under and start piping? Or do you trace with edible marker first?

I almost always trace the design onto the cookie, then decorate (like a paint-by-number). Some designs I'll do under the projector, but that's usually for things like lettering.

thank you so much!

So are you flooding first, letting it set up and then tracing with details........or are you drawing right onto the cookie itself and then covering up your lines with the icing?

I draw right on the cookie, then flood the areas one color at a time. As I mentioned earlier, think of your cookie as a paint-by-number picture. You add the lines, then "paint" by filling in with icing. My last step is to outline with black. Note: many times I will draw the design on the cookie, then flood the entire cookie white (when using this as my background color, like the "Bloom" cookies I posted). I can still see the lines under the glace. Then, I'll flood the areas like before. I think you get a smoother look this way. Just depends on the design.
