I need to emboss words onto cupcakes. I have 120 cupcakes to do as a favour to school. I don't have the time or the patience to cut the letters out and stick them onto each individual cupcake

It will say Class of 2009.

Whats the fastest and easiest way to do this. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Hmmmm.....Maybe find a stamp with this impression from a craft store and then use a powder color to emphasize the stamped impression.

I was also going to suggest a stamp. You can get good deals on a set of Alphabet stamps at Michaels with a coupon.

I agree, a stamp will work. The clear plastic ones are supposed to be food safe, the ones mounted on wood aren't. If you buy the clear plastic stamps, you need a plastic block to stick them on. You may be able to find one that has the message you need, otherwise it would take two sets of alphabets.

Texas Rose, can I ask where you found out that the clear ones are food safe? I did a ton of research contacting different manufacturers of thsoe clear stamps and none of them would state that they were food safe. I had one contact the plastic manufacturer even and they said they assumed they were food safe but they would not guarentee it. That said I've seen lots of people use them on cakes, I just couldn't get any confirmation from the actual stamp companies. I personally see another cake product for Ateco or Wilton on this one just to guarentee they're safe. I would love to know if they really are food safe because they're such a fun way to get interesting patterns on fondant.
