Hello Kitty St. Patrick's Day Cookies using the KopyKake 300XK Projector

Happy Almost St. Patrick's Day

I made these cookies using a design off of some Hello Kitty St. Patrick's Day cookies. If you haven't noticed I am a huge Sanrio fan. I think Sanrio is right up there with Disney. Someday I'll make all the characters on a cookie. I may be taking this cookie thing a bit far, but I ordered a KopyKake 300 XK to help make cookies. I was going to do a side by side cookie with and without the KopyKake, but I think the one without the projector wouldn't even be worth the sugar. So here's how I made them, I am no artist and almost feel like I'm cheating with this new monster of a tool.

Outline and Flood cookies - Using cheap Ziploc bags and a coupler

We were making so many cookies that we ran out of piping bags and tubes so we used really cheap ziploc bags with a coupler to outline and another bag with a small hole at the end to flood. This makes for a very easy clean-up and is helpful when you just need a little bit of flood icing. I let these dry overnight before adding Hello Kitty.

Outlining Hello Kitty using the KopyKake 300XK Projector

Here I'm using the kopykake to project the image on to the cookie. The lighting in the room was dim so it was fairly easy to see the image. It was a little difficult to get used to putting my hands off to the side so I didn't block the image being projected from above.

More outlining, notice how my hands had to be off to the side

Guiding the icing to create an outline - using P.M.E. 1.5 tip

All the images are outlined, and I'll let them dry for about 15 minutes

Fill with thinner flood icing

To finish, I filled the image with icing and allowed the icing to dry for about 1 hour, just to be safe and to take a breather from the cookies. My sister-in-law Rayanne said this step looked like advanced coloring. It was probably my favorite step, just adding the color to each section. It felt like that dump tool on most paint programs. I didn't take a picture of the last step, but I put the cookie back under the kopykake and added details - eyes, bows, clovers, etc.

The clovers seemed so easy to complete after completing the characters. These were so much fun to decorate!

Very very amateur video using the Kopykake. What is up with my voice? Is my Michigan accent coming through? My sister just started filming.

I lOVE THEM!! Copycake is SOOOO worth it! Lily said, "Let's make those for my party!". "Lily you already had a party!" "Mom, I'm just three still!!" I guess she would rather have a Hello Kitty cookie than actually turn four!

I kept thinking of the simpsons episode where they were going to shut down the quickie mart... "who needs a quickie mart.. now here's the trickie part..." except i was thinking "who needs a kopykake... i doooooooo"

Please please post more amateur videos because that was a good laugh for me -

The cookies are pretty incredible so I'd say it is worth the tool

You may feel like it's cheating, but it takes skill to work with Royal icing and to be able to pipe smoothly.
I love my KopyKake. I try not to use it too often, but it definitely makes for less stressful work when making characters and writing.
Love your Hello Kitties! She's my favorite too!!

You are right!! in between cookies i forget what a challenge the icing can be so i guess it's not cheating.
Thanks for looking!

I'm so glad you enjoyed it!! it's more like we were hanging out working on cookies and she started filming. it's reality tv style. nothing staged or even in focus.
