Hi, Debbie! Thanks for the kind words. There are SO many ways to transfer images onto cookies. The Kopykake is nothing more than a clunky, big image projector. You stick the image (or template) you want into the window at the top and then the light inside projects the image onto any work surface, including cookies. Then you can trace over the projection with icing. But, as others above have noted, there are ways to transfer images without any major equipment investment, and there are smaller, more flexible pico projectors that many are now using instead of the Kopykake. Best of luck, and happy decorating.
