Please someone enlighten me? I have seen loads pictures on Flickr that people seemed to stamped Happy birthday and other messages on fondant in small letters, and there is whole group of them. What do you use? Is it stamping? I would like to make cupcakes with different personal message on it. Please help me.
Michael's sells a clay embosser in their clay section.....I think it's by Walnut creek. I searched online for cupcakes and saw some similar to what you are describing, so of course I had to find something to make them with! If you look in my pictures, the one of the cupcake tower I just did for my daughter, you can see the cupcakes and I used that embosser to make her name on the ones that say 'Olivia'. I think it's $25.00, but I used a 50% off coupon.
Oh yeah, I also used it on the pink and purple Hannah Montana cake....the white band around the bottom of the cake that says 'you rock'.
I have actually used stamps I found at the craft store....they imprint the fondant and then you can dust them with sparkles or whatever...you can also paint then with a gel color and apply it that way
I have also used clean (never used with ink) rubber stamps. Works great!
