I was wondering if anyone made their own stencil for cake decorating. I thought it would be nice to have incase last minute cake when you are not sure how to decoarte and don't have time.

i'm sure you could. if you used the same plastic that they use for making stencils for quilting, it would be nice and bendable too.

I bought the electric cutter to make stencils just this morning at Michales. It was fifteen dollars. They also have the plastic sheets to make your own designs with. They where two dollars for two sheets. Hope this helps.

In the arts and crafts aisle in Walmart, with the stencils, there are plastic sheets to make your own. FUN to use!

I have bought quiet a lot of stencils from Walmart and Michaels..
I don't think I would do it myself, UNLESS i have a very specific design that is a must have, but I'm not sure if it is worth the trouble..

besides they are very cheap anyway. try it, and let us know how it came out.. i'm curious to know myself.. icon_smile.gif

I have cut them out using an exacto knife when I needed to match a design. They are not very smooth and my finger went numb, but worked well on the side of the cake:)

Sandie: I would love to have the electric one!! What is it called?
