How long does it take for a stamped surface to dry?
Drying times will vary depending on the surface that the stamp is applied to, how much ink is applied to the product and climatic conditions. For a standard application to a fondant surface, stamped surfaces will dry within an hour.
Drying times are longer for the silver and gold inks.
What surfaces can the inks be applied to?
The ink works very well on a range of sugar craft surfaces, including fondant, gumpaste, wafer paper, edible icing sheets.
Can I stamp directly on to a fondant covered cake?
Yes, cakes covered can be stamped directly. As with all cake decorating methods, practice is required to perfect the skills required to apply stamps to covered cakes, but with a little practice it is possible to produce amazing results this way.
It is not recommended to cover a cake with fondant with a stamped surface, as it will be difficult to apply the necessary touches to get the perfect smooth fondant finish.
Is there any alcohol in the Stamp a Cake inks?
No, all Stamp a Cake inks are alcohol free.
Will other colouring agents, such as gel colours, work as a stamping ink?
The Stamp a Cake ink has been specifically formulated to work with food grade stamps and tools. After rigorous testing, the Stamp a Cake produced the best results, in terms of drying time, adherence to the stamp and clarity of the stamp pattern on the food surface.
How much ink is required to use on the stamps stamps?
The roller foam absorbs the ink to ensure even coverage of ink to the stamp and to achieve the best finish. Using approximately one third of ink from the 18ml bottle allows the best results to be achieved. Additional ink can be used to top for larger projects.
For those using multiple colours on a project, it is recommended to have a roller for every colour used to minimise inks used and minimise creating a messy work space. this way you reduce you ink usage.
Can rollers with absorbed ink be stored?
Rollers with ink absorbed on the roller foam can be stored and reused by covering with the roller cover when not in use. The cover protects the roller and the ink does not dry out and prevents the ink making an unnecessary mess on other surfaces.
Will any of the ink colours be available in a larger size?
At this stage, only the white Stamp a Cake ink is available in the larger 60ml size.
How do I clean Stamp a Cake ink off surfaces and tools?
The best method to clean ink from the press, ink tray, stamps and roller is with warm water mixed with washing detergent. Similarly, soapy water will remove the ink from bench top surfaces.
How do I clean Stamp a Cake ink off my hands?
Ink can be cleaned of hands using soapy water. However to avoid ink on your hands, it is recommended that food grade rubber gloves re used when cleaning or changing rollers.
