Hi
I am making cupcakes for a housewarming party. One of the toppers I want to make out of fondant is a welcome mat. However, the only lettering I have and can find is large. I have attached a picture I found that is a good example of the size. Any ideas suggestions? I have been all over the internet. The lettering size I need is like on the topper that has welcome and Home Sweet Home. Thank you!

I bought this clay embossing tool at Michael's. I emboss messages on fondant plaques with it. Hope this helps!

Hope you find what will work for you. There are also small alphabet rubber stamp sets that can be impressed into fondant.

Thank you both so much. I will have to look at Michael's for those. Thanks again.

They are. Michael's, Hobby Lobby and Joann's all have them. They are. The one I bought has orange letters that measure 6.5mm (0.25").

Thank you Pam! I think that will work great!

You are welcome! They have two, one with white letters which is just a noraml type and one with orange letters which is more of a script. Good luck!!

Hi Pam,
Can you tell me what that is called? I searched Michael's twice and asked for help, no luck. Ended up buying some stamps, just not sure if they will work.
I have a Joann's by my work and Hobby Lobby isn't too far but I can't even find online on their sites.

Thanks.

Oh no! Did you look in the section where the clay is? That is where I bought mine.

cofeewoman Posted 7 Aug 2012 , 1:38am

First, I didn't realize both pics you put are the same thing. (although you did explain... sorry) You know I don't think I ever saw clay anywhere lol. I went up and down every aisle and nook. I am going tomorrow to Joann's and will make sure I look in the clay area and know that I know what it is called. Thanks!

Yeah! I found it! I got the white. Thank you again!
