Tiny impression letters?

post #1 of 296
Thread Starter 
I have seen a few people using very small impression letters on their fondant covered cookies. Does anyone know where to get them? icon_confused.gif

I saw those too. I wonder if they are just stamps, from the stamping department of a craft store? I have seen individual letters in rubber stamps that small. Technically not food-safe but I can't imagine the duration of exposure to your fondant would result in any leaching chemicals IMO.

Just my 2c!

ceshell, I have actually purchaced different letter stamps from the craft store. They just don't go deep enough. But, thanks for your response!

Good to know!! And that answers my suggestion #2 which would be, put plastic wrap between the fondant and stamp if you're worried about food-safety. But if those stamps already don't go deep enough, then plastic wrap would just result in nothing at all, I'd guess.

I wonder about metal letter punches, would those be deep enough. I saw the cookies you meant but I don't remember just how deep the impressions were. Have you PM'd the decorator??

Yes I have pm'd the decorator with no response. So, I thought I'd take the question to the masses. lol Where can I look at metal letter punches? I have looked into type setting letters like the ones they use to print newpapers with. They would be perfect but very expexsive. I believe you have to invest in a hugh set.

I Googled...oh drat, I don't remember if it was "metal letter stamp" or "metal letter punch" - something like that. They are not terribly expensive. However I could not tell from the pics whether or not they would cut deep enough. Might be worth a peek anyway!

I'm curious too, maybe the fondant is rolled thin enough that the decorator was able to use the rubber stamps from the craft store? I was also wondering what type of cutter is used to get the small flower that I see on the little cookies as well, Thanks

I should add that I did ask about a different cookie she had posted with the same small letters But im guessing she used the same cutters!
She was very nice to reply!

Wow... those are tiny. You might be able to get "printing press" sets off of ebay... those would probably work.
