KopyKake Projector Cookies

These cookies were decorated using a KopyKake Projector. It projects an image onto the cookie so that you can trace it and decorate the cookie. The projector is a new (and expensive) toy for me as I've only had it a couple weeks and these cookies were my first attempt at using it. These are not perfect, but it was a good first pass at practicing using the projector. My niece came over for dinner last night and stole all 3 of these cookies right away ;-) oohing and aahing over them.


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!
 Sparkles...
 and sparkles...
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!
