How do you use a projector on cakes? I understand the part where you project the design and you basically sketch the outline. However, how do you fill it in? icon_redface.gif Do you use a star tip or do you use lines and smooth it out?

Any tips that you can share? thumbs_up.gif

Thanks in advance for any help.

I have a projector and LOVE it! I actually have done it both with star tips and with round tips. It depends on the effect you would like.

once you have all your outlines on your cake then you can turn your projector off. you can then fill in the design anyhow you wish, generally i zigzag fill in and then smooth. but the best use is for writing.

Is that better or easier than doing FBCT?

id say better, i use it for nearly all my sheet cakes that have a drawing and especially the ones that have a lot of writing. the 'cons' of the projector is it pretty big and takes up some counter space, it can be taken apart for storage though

ARe there any other projectors out there than the KopyKake ones? They are out of my budget right now.

I used to airbrush a lot of the time with mine, but now I perfer to do choc. transfers.... but my projector is invaluable for writing. I love to do different fonts and I can position it perfectly on the cake. Perfect writing EVERY time icon_smile.gif
