Like a rubber stamp kind of thing? I'd like to make a teir of a cake be black with small white stamped on skull shapes. Like a goth kind of t-shirt. I can't image trying to cut them out. I thought about painting them on - but that would take forever.

Have you tried to find a mold?

There is sweetstampen.com. She has a line of food safe stamps that you could use. I believe that she is a member of cc.

I have used gumpaste and rolled it out to about an 1/8" thick and cut out a particular shape and let it harden, then put a fresh chunk of gumpaste on the back of it and let it harden, and then used that as a stamp........it works, but depending on how many times you use it, it starts to dissolve...since it's made of SUGAR!!! lol But it does work.

I saw on tv where a girl used those clear stamps at the craft store for her cakes....wonder if they're really food safe though?

Thanks guys.

Nothing on sweetstampen -bummer. I've seen discussions on here that regular stamps are not food safe - so I don't want to do that.

Nope - haven't searched for a mold - I'll try that.

I might have to try the gumpaste thing - that might work. But I'd like to stamp quite a few times around an 8" tier. Probably would have to make more than one.

Remember being a kids and painting with potatoes - cut out the shape in a potato and dip it then stamp with it?

wonder if that would work...

Oh yeah. That would definitely be food safe - lol. Just might work! I'm searching for molds - but am only finding really thick ones. I'd really like it to look like stamped fabric.

Why aren't regular stamps food safe?
I mean if you only use them for that purpose?

I don't remember exactly - something about the foam material the stamp is made from.

I just saw a Martha Stewart cupcake episode a few days ago where she was using a wooden backed rubber stamp from the craft store to stamp initials on fondant for cupcake toppers and she didn't mention one thing about using food safe stamps! icon_surprised.gif

I had read somewhere that the wooden backed stamps could have formaldehyde in the wood due to how the wood is processed and therefore are not food safe. I guess the acrylic or plastic backed ones are safe, tho???

Hmmm - I don't know! How are you really supposed to know?!

I didn't finish my thought. Find a mold, them make your image and pop out. Let dry and then use as a stamp. Will also eventually break apart, so make more than you think you'll need.
