Default Stamping on Fondant?

I am making cupcakes for my son's first birthday and I wanted to know if anyone has tried stamping on fondant. I have been using the Unfroggetable stamp set for his stuff (invites, favors, etc.) and thought I might be able to use them on the cupcakes. I was thinking it might leave an indent that I could trace with icing?

Any thoughts?

I bought the supplies to make cookies w/the fondant icing. I haven't tried it yet. I bought black "ink" so if you could find some and then you can stamp the froggie. In the write up from the company who was selling the stuff, they said they had specially made stamps which are safe to stamp on food (fondant). I've read a few opinoins on our stamps not being 'food safe', but I was still planning on trying it....just cleaning them really well before doing it.

Let me know how you make out!

You could color the stamp with food coloring pens to use as the ink before you press it down onto the fondant. I bought pens with the intention of doing this, but have never tried it.

My Mom decorates cakes and I've been to a few cake shows with her and this is what I've learned about stamping on icing.

1) it can be done.
2) you should not use stamps that have been used with craft ink. You should have separate stamps for food vs crafts (of course, you could try to clean the stamps very well before you use them on cakes (or cookies), but I would only do this if only my family were the only ones going to eat it. I'd be too afraid someone else would get sick if I was going to serve it to anyone else besides family, so I'd use a food-only stamp set in that case.)
3) you can use either food coloring or the special "ink" or paints they have for cakes/cookies but between the two, the special "ink" or paints look better, but you can still color with food coloring or icing.

HTH,
Christine

Wilton makes plastic "stamps" for fondant - they are stiff, deeply etched, and made for making impressions in the fondant. That will be your best bet.
