I found all these cute stamps at micheals today, and I was wondering how I could stamp some sugar cookies, do I paint it with colour?

I've used the rubber ones and just dipped it in food coloring and stamped it onto fondant.

I have read that the rubber ones mounted on wood blocks are not food safe. The clear acrylic ones for scrapbooking, the ones you peel off a sheet and stick on a clear block, are food safe.

I usually use them for impressions on cake boards.

I never tried these, but I read two technichs in two different books. I also bought a few rubber stamps, I might get encouraged and try them for Valentine's Day.

1. Wet or dampen a small felt (I hope I am naming the right material) with liquid food color. Slightly press the stamp on it and gently either press on the cookie, or the fondant (works better), or marzipan.

2. With a round roller thingy (like the one painters use, but it has to be food safe) transfer the liquid food color on the stamp, and etc.

You will have a sharper, cleaner image transferred if the color gets only on the design not all the stamp.

I sometimes use the stamps to transfer its design to fondant either on cake or cookie with no color, just press the clean stamp on fondant or even gum paste. you either can cut the design out, let it dry and use it or you can paint it with a small food safe clean brush and food colors or dusts.

Texas_Rose thank you for pasting the subject, I learned a lot. I will let every one who can use the info. know the stamps are not safe.

It is sad and scary to see some books illustrate on how to use those stamps for decorating cakes and cookies.

Do you know anything about crayola products, not the play dough itself but the tools, stamps, molds, etc.

I feel so stupid for buying all those stamps, and now I might be able to use those just for embossing ... icon_cry.gif

I've tried it before (saw in MS Weddings) and did not get good results. It would smear when I did it.

I didn't mean to make you feel bad. I bought stamps too because I had seen them used on cupcakes on Flickr, then came home and got on Cake Central and read that I couldn't use them after all icon_sad.gif

But they do make nice designs on cake boards, like this:

I painted over the impressions with silver airbrush paint, with a regular paintbrush, then wiped the excess off with a paper towel. Easiest thing ever!

And those scrapbook stamps are fine to use, from what I've read. Michaels has them in their dollar bins sometimes and so does Joanns, and they go on sale a lot. There are some really neat ones.

when I saw the title of your post I was thinking that you could rubber stamp them before you baked them, if they were well chilled i think they might hold the impression.

but of course you should get the food safe ones.

That's what I was thinking too! Has anyone tried to use them to leave an impression? Kind of like using a cookie mold, only in reverse. I was thinking of using an alphabet set to imprint sayings on valentine 'candy heart' cookies. Would love to hear if anyone has had success with this!

You can use rubber stamps because Martha Steward uses them. She gets them from this special place. I've tried the clear ones.
