    Run like an Egyptian Cookie, cupcakes and stamping Fondant


    run like an Egyptian stamped gingerbread cookies and choc ginger mini cupcakes


    What if the gingerbread man wasn't eaten by the fox? What if he just kept running off to new adventures? Pondering this I thought I'd like an avatar as the worst aspect of having fibromyalgia must be the isolation and an avatar would allow me to travel (actually just leaving the damn house would be a start!!) and who better than to act as my avatar... the gingerbread man of course ;)

    Stamping fondant with craft stamps (that's new ones, not your old inked ones) is an easy and effective way to add a border, a passage of poetry, birthday greetings, floral etc, to your freshly fondant covered cake.

    Consider unmounted stamps for cake decorating not only are they more cost effective, the soft bendable rubber allows you press your stamp into round shapes and around curves. Fabulous for when you don't want to distort your stamped image.

    Try the usual haunts for stamps; craft stores, discount stores and stationery shops but also keep an eye out for stamps in unusual places. The Egyptian hieroglyphics I used today were part of a mummy making children's book. Online SilverCrow Creations have an odd but interesting range of stamps from Alice to Edgar Allen Poe.
