Like Sweet SugarBelle says, it is not a cure-all or a magic wand. You still have to work a lot at cookie decorating. I bought a kids book that had the images in it and I used my scanner and printer to re-size the image to a manageable size and let the projector do the rest. It took some time to move the projector head and lens every which way until I got the image sized and focused just the way I wanted it, even with using a scanned and printed image. Hopefully it will get easier as I get used to playing with the projector.
I found very quickly that it's best to use a SIMPLE image. My personality tends to jump into things BIG, so silly me thought it would be great to do an entire detailed castle scene on my first cookie. I should have taken a picture of that one so you could get a great laugh! ;-) Nick enjoyed eating it quickly for me before anyone could see it!
Do you see the incredible sparkles on these cookies? That is Disco Dust recommended by Sweetopia. You can get it at CopperGifts, item #4688 or other colors are available too. I think it IS magical. It's expensive and comes in this tiny, tiny little jar, but oh what fun!
Okay, I need to get back to the video game cookies for this weekend. Have a wonderful day everyone and to all my friends on the East Coast, try to stay warm!
