Just walking through WalMart & something caught my eye....small, plastic suncatchers. I bought several b/c they were so cheap(.50). Anyway, I thought that these would make perfect stencils or stamps to make cutouts or impressions. Has anyone tried these out? One is a butterfly & I may try it out on a cake a have to do next week.
Yes, I plan to wash them very well before use & no, I don't know if they are "food safe".
Just an idea!

Sounds like a good idea. Might have to try that myself, thanks!

yes, you can also use them to imprint on a crusted cake. make sure to make a handle on the back with a piece of masking tape for easy lifting off.

I am so glad I saw your post! I already tried 'sun catchers' on fondant and they worked great! (I used them for the fish on one of the cakes in my gallery) I was just about to start a post about using sun catchers. They are very handy and easy to use. I use an exacto knife to cut them out of the fondant. I guess great minds think alike!!
