I light bulb just went off!! I have a new spray paint set for cakes and a cricut. Just wondering why I am rolling gumpaste, waiting for it to dry, cutting it out, hoping it doesn't break and putting on cakes. Has anyone tried cutting stencils with their cricut and just spraying on the designs?? If you are, do you use freezer paper or vinyl or what for the best results.

Wow, that's a really great idea! I don't see why it wouldn't work. I'll be watching this post.

I have made stencils with my cricut. I have cut regular typing paper for a one time airbrush stencil. I have also used overhead projector sheets to make stencils for buttercream stenciling.

i actually did just that with airbrushing and used overhead projection sheets... i used a tiny bit of crisco on the fondant to hold the sheet in place (on the sides of the cake)

dreamacres, which spray paint set do you have? I'm in the middle of doing 150 cupcake toppers with my cricut and fondant... I wish I would have thought of the stencil idea... it would have saved time.

I've done this with cheap cardstock for a onetime use project but I've considered buying the stencil paper at walmart for when I think I'll use them more than once. I've only used buttercream so far, but I bought a stencil to use with my airbrush, I just havent tried it yet.

I'll be doing this soon with some monogram cookies for a bridal shower.
