So I had a cake ordered to be cheetah print which I usually hand paint on fondant and it takes a long time. The night before I had to pain the cake I couldn't sleep and thought maybe I could find a stamp to use and then paint the black by hand. I didn't find any stamps online so I thought what about a potato? It is food safe. So I bought a potato and cut it to make a few different shapes for the cheetah print and it worked perfectly. I was super excited and it totally made the cake much faster to do. So I have to give a shout out to the potato.

Love it! Did you cut a few different shapes into the same stamp so you were stamping a few spots at a time?

That's where I got the idea from, when I was a kid and did it.

I made 3 different stamps which took all of about 2 minutes. That is a great idea though.
