Mwahhhh, kiss, kiss - stamping cute decorations


Quite a few people asked me about the little lips I used to decorate my tim tam cookie pops with so I'm going to quickly share my secret with you.

Stamps......




Cute little lip stamps that I picked up as part of a 6 pack with other cute stamps from Typo (Australian stationery shop).


 Then I just rolled out fondant (or gumpaste) and cut out a circle.


Popped a tiny amount of gel food colour onto the stamp and started stamp'n. 

So little effort for such a lot of cuteness.

Try to only get it on the lips (or what ever it is your stamping) otherwise you might end up with a messy one like this........


I have a bunch of these here dabber things so you can just put just a smidgen of the food colouring onto the stamp.


and to get the glittery heart look, just sprinkled on some non toxic food glitter straight after stamping while the food colour is still wet,  after it dries brush off the excess with a soft paintbrush.



Oh and make sure your equipment is food safe if someone is going to be eating it and definitely only use it for foodstuff (ie no real ink or paint).

Mwahhhhh, bye for now.

  8. Hi Linda, just a short note to say a big thanks for this delicous recipe. I made these for a friend's tea party and they were a hit (mine weren't as pretty as yours but they were still delicious)! I had lots of people asking for the recipe so I've sent them your blog and put a link on mine. Thanks again!
