I posted this on the "How do I" forums but thought it would fit here as well if not better.
I see decorators using a small flexible trowel for applying icing to a stencil on a cake in the videos, but I am having a hard time finding a source. It is a polystyrene trowel.
Does anyone have a better tool for that or a source to buy one of them?

bought mine in the paint dept of Home Depot. For patching holes in walls.
It works great!

I do mainly cookies and I love using palette knives. Most have nice flexible tips which I love.

You can get a set of various sizes at Michaels for a very reasonable price.

They are in the artist painting isle.

I'm such a nerd. I use my Pampered Chef stoneware scraper. My sister sells Pampered Chef, so they're pretty easy for me to get ahold of.

I have one of those and thought of it but worried it might be too stiff?
I read that a for sale sign cut to size from Home Depot might do the trick too...
