Dude, Im an idiot! LOL. I even suggested the projector at the beginning of the thread icon_rolleyes.gif
I'll blame it on the fact that I was printing out some edible images when I responded thumbs_up.gif
Definitely looking forward to buying that projector next month icon_biggrin.gif

Alagoas- Where did you buy your projector? Im looking at the KK1000, but I dont know if it's worth it to buy one from kopykake. com and spend $100+ more to get the design set. It's $475 to get the one from kopykake, and about $350 to get it from Madison Art Shop

I bought the 300XK directly from Kopykake...

I didn't buy the extension rod, though... and had to improvise (sp?) with one I got at Home Depot... it is almost as having the one from Kopykake...

the rod IS necessary if you will decorate COOKIES...

Thanks! Is that one hard to use? I see it needs low light. The one projector I tried (and returned) was TERRIBLE because it required low light. I couldnt see past the shadow of my hand to pipe the image.

@chefjulie,
I use the projector in the dinning room which has no direct sunlight but is not a dark place at all... and from what you tell me about not seeing past the shadow of your hand, I think your required an extension rod and to adjust the lens... see? I had the same problem until my DH got that rod from Home Depot... now all I have to do is slide the projector up or down, and adjust the lens to focus... images are very clear...

when my design is not too clear after adjusting, I just outline with a black marker and voila!! icon_smile.gif

The Kopykake is designed for caking so it's already set up to shine straight down onto your cakes/ cookies.



Awesome! Thanks for sharing!! I had no idea that even existed!
