Does anyone use either one of these, and if so, which would you recommend and why?

I am tired of having to pay to have pictures enlarged for my cakes, and thought with all the wonderful paper that Alan sends us, I could blow the picture up with a projector right onto his paper. Any suggestions or comments?

I had purchased a projector during the years I had my in-home business. I had used one while working at the grocery stores and was so tickled when I could finally afford to buy my own. That was one of the best things I ever got for the bakery!!! icon_biggrin.gifthumbs_up.gif LOVED IT!!!

When I closed down and we moved, I sold the projector. icon_sad.gif I only do cakes occasionally now, but sometimes I really regret selling it! icon_cry.gif

My cake projector is the one decorating item I would never want to give up! (other than Dixie's icing). I can lay out every design exactly how I want it, from graphics to writing, and know it will fit perfectly on the cake. It's a wonderful invention!

i dont know what you mean about projecting onto paper?? is that paper edible?? I have the kopykake 1000K it has 2 bulbs and although you can see the image with the room lights on i still turn them off for bolder lines to show. ive also used the 300KX (one light bulb) which works well if youre going to turn the room lights off. im always using it especially for writing on cakes.

I have the Kopykake projector and it sure makes things easier when doing cakes. However, I go through my spells where I do cakes on and off. I am strongly considering getting rid of mine because I just dont use it as much as I would like to. Then, I think what if I get rid of it and regret it. Uggh! LOL!
