The Sweet Stamp Pick Up Pad, is the magic key to the whole Sweet Stamp system. The pick up pad is used to line up all your characters which then provides you a stable platform to emboss your letters into fondant, sugar paste, buttercream and more.
The PickUpPad now comes in clear so you can see exactly where your letters are being embossed!
The PickUpPad is not itself sticky, the acrylic shapes simply stick, or suction, onto to the pad. If you are finding that the letters aren't staying in place, a light film of water rubbed across the PickUpPad will ensure the acrylic shapes "stick" to the pad. Always place the protective sheet back over the pad when you're finished with it.
The PickUpPad doesn't last forever. With care, it will last a long time. If you do need to clean the tacky pad, simply wipe it down with a very light soapy water. Do not immerse the pad in water.
Note: Please ensure that you remove the protective plastic cover from the PickUpPad before use. Replace after use.
The Sweet Stamp system has been designed to lightly emboss your design into fondant with the expectation that the embossed area will be painted using edible paints. It was not designed to be a replacement for fondant embossers with fixed text that can be pressed heavily into sugar paste or cookie dough. With this in mind, the PickUpPad will grip the letters allowing you to lightly emboss. If you do emboss heavily into fondant, the "stickyness" of the fondant will overcome the grip the tacky pad has on the letter.
