AHi, I was looking at getting kopykake projector, and was on a website that had other opaque projectors (which is what the kopykake is). Could I just get one of those? It's $89 and seems to do the same thing. Anyone use anything other than the kopykake?? Thanks!
So you put a picture in and project down a guideline for freehand piping, very handy looking thing! I suspect any similar design would work so long as there was enough space for cake and hands under the downlight.... seems like a lot of money though..... I don't think I would use one enough personally.
I bought a kid's version specifically for a Bud Light can cake. It worked great. I just used it to line up and scale well, and locate items on the can. So kind of a combo "free hand" and trace. With a coupon, I may have paid $20. (JoAnn's or Hobby Lobby I think)
Cheapest I found was at Hobby Lobby now for $40-40% coupon= $24+tx. Like I said, there was a blue kid's version that works just fine.
No pro bakery here, so not worth the investment for the "real" thing for me.
I recently purchased a PICO projector and I love it!! I am able to connect it to my iphone and ipad and it is so easy to use. I've never used a kopykake so I can't say how it would compare to that. HTH
