I want to make cupcake toppers in shape of a business card. My problem is how to do the writings on the card. because the card topper is already small. The card is 3 inces and I made the logo from foam(stamp it on gum paste) but I don't know how to print the name of the business on such a small piece of gumpaste...I don't want to write the name by hand (too many of them!!) I tried to find a mini alphabet stamps but even the smallest weren't small enough...I need help icon_cry.gif

Write it on with edible marker. They come in lots of colors and the tips are fine enough to write tiny.

I'd use an edible image printer on frosting sheets and apply them to gumpaste cards.

Like I said in my post there are a lot of them (There are 120 cupcakes) so it is going to be too hard to write them by hand....anyone else has any suggestions please icon_biggrin.gif

Where are you located? Most cake supply shops will print an edible image for you. It may be worth it. The only thought I have is to make another stamp. Tiny writing is hard. Heck writing is hardicon_smile.gif

I'd do edible images too. My cake supply store will print an 8.5" x 11" (non-copyright) for $7. With the size of your toppers you could get several on a sheet.

Charmed, how are your piping skills? You could take a square of foam pipe the image in reverse in royal icing and let it dry and use that as your stamp. I would make two because the royal may break off over time.
