Found a new tool on GSA that I love! Its just a water brush...stores a tablespoon or two of water in the handle and then you can squeeze it to wet the brush. Brush is very soft and flexible, not stiff or hard. AWESOME for attaching fondant decorations to cake! No more little bowl of water to knock over for me. haha.

Its a little thing, but I wish I had one a long time ago!

Light bulb moment!!

I wonder if the sponge tip brush thing from my daugher's aqua doodle toy would work for fondant?

Love this tool! I use it almost every time I do a cake. It's super helpful as oppose to having a paint brush and bowl of water.
I actually got mine at Michael's in the scrapbooking section using a coupon so it was under $5.

Someone here recommended the little bottle w/ the pad at the end that you dampen the backs of stamps with.

I've never tried that but I would think a soft brush would be easier to just swipe the surface of a piece and stick on...

Gotta love those last minute purchases I add to my GSA order...I am always amazed how fast I can rack up the bill at that place. haha.

Yes, the Aquadoodle brush works really well. I have used one for a long time (and I did buy a new one just for caking!). It is actually a sponge tip applicator.

HEY! haha.

I don't scrapbook so I would have never dreamed of looking in the scrapbook section for a water pen. haha.

I don't scrapbook really either but you'd be surprised on all the cool stuff in that section. One of my cake friends had the pen and told me about it so I got mine at Michaels.

I've also gotten the non toxic chalk palette and some fun clear mats that are like impression mats in that section.

The water pen is near the chalks and other little gadgets.
