I'm making a retirement cake for a military member, and the cake will include many dog tags... how can I get that "embossed" wording on the dog tag? Ani ideas for letter stamps that are small enough?

You could try to pipe the words out using a tiny piping tip (in reverse of course) I would print it on the pc and pipe it using royal or the flexible royal (gumpaste mix with water til it's piping consistency) Then once it's dry and hard use it as a stamp.

I have some PRETTY small rubber stamps but I'm not sure they're even SMALL enough to make a decent looking dog tag!

Could you use a childs printing set. One with rubber letters that are set into a holder. I have a set of tiny letters in rubber which are meant for an addressing machine which I have used quite successfully to print letters onto icing. Just an idea.
