Those of you who are using rubber stamps, scrapbooking tools, and clay tools, should know that it is a violation of both the FDA and the EPA (in the USA) to use these tools on food products.

They are not considered food-grade materials, and as such, you can be fined heavily if caught using them.

killjoy! No! Just kidding! Thank you for the information. I know pleading ignorance is no excuse.

you can use the stamps if they are not mounted on wood, but you can buy acrylic circles and double faced tape.

This method is approved.

You can also go to the website

sweetstampin.com she sells stamps and kits that are food approved.

Also, make sure that you sanitize everything. I was everything in hot soapy water, soak in sanitizer, rinse and wipe everything down with a little clear liquor, it dries fast and eliminates water spots. lol

Sorry to burst any bubbles, but it happened to Laure'l Silverberg, not long after she appeared on Carol Duvall. She had demonstrated cookie stamping on the show. Shortly afterward, she was contacted by the FDA about the stamps she was using. The incident brought her to create Sweet Stampen rubber stamps, which are food-safe rubber stamps.

The stamps are also detailed enough to use on crusted buttercream or rolled fondant. The current owner, Holly, is a great gal.

No, you can't just use the stamps from a craft store, even if they are not mounted on a wood block. There are chemicals in those stamps which can leach into the food product.
Holly sells her stamps mounted or unmounted, so that people who scrapbook can use them, also, but all her stamps are made from food-grade rubber.

Ok, so I didn't spell the name of her site correctly,

but that is where I was sending people to Laure'l Silverberg's site.


She is a very nice woman, and is very helpful.

She has kits and she will also design a rubber stamp for you ! Which I think is great

Hi,
Those are my cupcakes..the embossed ones in the original picture. I haven't been on here for ages so was worried I may have missed an email from cupcakecouture asking about them (no email so I don't feel guilty for not answering now phew). Those ones in particular are done with a roller.....I think it's the swan patterned roller (it's a medium size) but mine broke as soon as I got it (fell on the floor & broke in 2 so don't drop them) so it makes it harder to use it icon_sad.gif Cost a small fortune (it was the first time I used a roller as I originally used a different method to emboss before the patterned rollers or templates were around) but I really should get another one as it's my favourite pattern so far. I don't even know the brand but will find out.
Yeah unfortunately stamps need to be food grade. Certain chemicals are used to make the stamps that aren't suitable for food & can result in food poisoning (yikes) so thankfully for food grade ones!
