Cake kit: Letter stamps

Letter stampsEvery now and again I come across a cakey gadget that I just HAVE to have. I’m sure you’re the same. So, when I saw these letter stamps I really couldn’t resist them.  I was in Hobbycraft gathering up loads of supplies for a mammoth Christmas crafting shoot I was working on and out of the corner of my eye I spotted these cute little letter stamps.

Now, they’re not really meant for cake decorating. They’re meant for ink, but with a quick soapy wash I think they are fine for a bit of cookie stamp action. The reason that they’re on my radar is because my sister in law sent me a link over a year ago to an American website with this really cool cookie letter press set that had a frame to put the letters in and create nice and even words. It was really expensive to buy when you considered the postage costs but the set was always at the back of my mind.

But. this little set was a bargain. Probably one of the biggest cake decorating bargains I have ever come across. Guess how much it was?

£2.00! Yep, just £2.00. How amazing is that?

So, I had a bit of a play with them on some vanilla cookies and they came out pretty well. I think I’ll be trying them out on some sugarpaste next. The results should be even better.

    Great Idea. I do have one of the frame sets from William Sanoma in the US who now ship to the UK, but the length of word is very limited. I think the irregularity of these is way cuter. GG
