So i was wondering if anyone knows of any other cake stencil company apart from Design stencils.
I would be glad if someone could help me out with another brand or maybe another way of doing this. Thank you

What is it you're wanting to do? Do you not like their stencils?

Here is something I've been thinking about for a while. You know the stencil cutting machine that is sold for scrap booking. It's well over $200 in my area. Can your cut a heavier paper or mylar and make cake stencils? I don't scrapbook so don't know anything about the cutter.

One of the CCers here (read cake genius) makes her own stencils using ice cream tub lids. With a little patience and a good exacto knife, I think that would be the best solution for unique stencils that you can reuse! icon_smile.gif

yep, I'm with Marmette , the designs are beautiful but too expensive for me, considering that I live in a country where you can only expend 2500$ because a governmet decree.
I saw an instruction video on their site and the material of the stencil didn't seem too stiff, canregular ecetate work?
the idea of the machine sounds nice!

what's wrong with the regular stencils one uses for paper projects at Michael's? Do they need to be made out of some sort of special material that I don't know about? They are not very expensive, and if you ONLY use them for cakes I don't see what the problem is.
Am I missing something? I have never stenciled on a cake beofore, but after seeing those 3 videos that were posted, OH....the possibilities. icon_smile.gif

You can buy stencils in the craft dept at walmart or Michaels but they are a little flimsy.

Global Sugar Art has some that are really beautiful. I've already found 10 that I would sooooo love to have.

oh so from this i went searching online and i found some stencil cutters online on ebay. and they can melt acetate of mylar so you can make your own stencils. I think that might be the direction for me.

I just stenciled my first cake (hatbox on top of suitcase in my pic post) and I used a regular stencil I purchased at Michaels for 3.50. (Didnt want to spend alot of money just to practice), and it really worked great.
