If I am not creating and pushing my skills, always learning something new, I am not happy. So check back often for fresh designs and new ideas!

If you want to know even more about me, check out my blog at theborrowedbrushstroke.blogspot.com.

What is gumpaste? I use Satin Ice brand gumpaste which is a sugar dough that is FDA approved and Kosher certified. It is sugar mixed with gum tragacinth creating a flexible dough. It is sometimes called candy clay. http://www.satinfinefoods.com/product.htm

What is a frosting sheet? It is rolled fondant (a sugar dough that is more firm than gumpaste) placed on a food safe backing that can run through edible ink, food safe printers.

What type of edible ink and printer do I use? I use KopyKake brand edible ink. All frosting and ink ingredients are FDA approved, all materials that come in contact with the edible portion of the product, backing paper, ink cartridges, cartridge filling and printer rollers, are FDA approved. They are also Kosher certified.

Let me know how I can help make your next event truly special with unique creations in sugarcraft. I love custom orders, so do not hesitate to get specific about your vision!

My shop is Convo Friendly, so feel free to drop me a line to say, "hello."

If you are located outside the USA and want to purchase my creations, please send me a convo as each country has stringent customs guidelines on edible foods.
