I have never used stencils except in painting my house.

I don't use fondant. Do you use them with that? icon_confused.gif

How do you use them on a cake? icon_eek.gif The look really cool...

That looks like a great place to shop! I have wondered where to get great stencils. Thanks for sharing and have fun!

Sorry if this is a silly question but are these flexible ?

Those are great stencils. Judylynnturner: I've used stencils on buttercream covered cakes. Just make sure your buttercream crusts, then lay the stencil on top, use a foam wedge to spread a layer of buttercream over the stencil and then gently pull the stencil off of the cake. It's a great trick when you don't have much time to decorate!

Jilly- that cake is so pretty!!! I love it!!!
So, you let the buttercream crust, lay the stencil down, and take the colored buttercream an smooth it over and pull away?? That sounds so easy and clean, but I'm betting I'll make a huge mess of it... icon_redface.gif
Very, very pretty cake!!!

Yes, they are flexible just like the stencils you use on painting walls..but these are made with plastic that is ok to use on food, although I must admit I've used the ones Michaels sell for painting the walls.. icon_smile.gif

This one I used BC(sides) on Fondant. If you mess up, you can scrape the BC and start over again, w/c is what happened here:

The cake is beautiful. I love stencils but have not used them yet. Hobby Lobby & JoAnns have flexible stencils in many different designs for about $3 or $4 each. they are not as wide though. They are about 2 or 3" wide & 12" long but I think they would work for borders or strips around the cake. If used very carefully they might work as the ones on the cake above?? I feel an experiment coming on! icon_smile.gif

I have several stencils but haven't used them. Your beautiful cake has given me inspiration.
