So if this isn’t new to you, just pretend to be excited with me!
This technology has me so excited! Imagine the possibilities.
There is an ipad app called Camera Lucida that works by using an image on your screen and the rear camera to allow you to trace and see what you are tracing from the image.
This is a really fun app for anyone wanting to play around and trace some pictures but it is even more cool because this can be used for cake decorating.
Sarah Trefny at klickitatstreet.com wrote a tutorial on how to trace patterns onto cookies with this app. She shows how she built a stand to hold the ipad in place while working too.
The possibilities are endless with this technology. You could copy simple little characters or draw detailed images. It can be done on cookies like Sarah shows in her tutorial or onto cupcakes, or right onto a cake or onto sugar pieces that you can then put on a cake.
Isn’t this just the coolest idea? One downside is that it can only work on the new ipad. The older ipads are not equipped with the back camera that is required.
So what do you think? Is this a technology you would use? What other technology helps you in your decorating?
