Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sure, its easy to do, but its difficult to space lettering perfectly and tricky to fix if you make a mistake. I avoid it at all costs. I am about to purchase a stamping kit for gumpaste that I want to try. Of course, I've never had neat penmanship anyhow!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This technique is great if you already have great printing ability to begin with. Otherwise it might be helpful to practice a few letters first, maybe do a stencil on the cake to guide you.
