I'm going to be using the same stencil on several sides of a 4 tier cake. The cake is white fondant and the stenciling will be in black royal. Do I need to clean the stencil between each use, or can I use it a few times before cleaning, or can I do the entire job. I'm just wondering if I need to get a couple of stencils instead of one so I don't have to stop while the other one is drying. Thanks!

I just rinse it off with warm water, pat it dry with a paper towel and go back to work.

You absolutely must clean it. Or else, um, you would smear it on the fondant.

yes, you need to clean between each use.

Thanks, that is what I was assuming, that it needed to be cleaned. I'll probably go ahead and get 3 of the same one so they can be drying while I'm working (I'm going to be using it 16 times).
