I just saw the demos on doing the stencils on cakes... but I was wondering, can you just use the stencil you can get like at Michael's or JoAnn's in the aisle where the paint is... I guess the ones you would use on walls? Of course, not if they've already been used with paint... but I didn't know if they were made with a different kind of material that wouldn't be good to be in contact with food.

Sure! I use them all the time!! I've even ordered some wall stencils from and used them on cookies. Works like a charm! icon_biggrin.gif

I go all over the stores loo at EVERYTHIG, I can think of...I buy stencils and molds from: wilton area, cake area you know, then I go to the clay department at hobby lobby/michales...and then I go to the soap making dept, and then to the paint and last but not forgotten...the toy department also. And CLEARANCE AISLES!!!!

Home depot, name it, I go!

The stencil I used on my hatbox (sitting on top of the suitcase in my photos) was a regular $3 stencil I bought at Michaels.
