Stenciling Your Cookies

There are a variety of ways you can use stencils to decorate your cookies.

Care Instructions

Wash your steCC Rollingncil in warm soapy water before use.  Either pat dry gently or air dry naturally.

This stencil is not dishwasher proof.

Royal Icing

For a raised “embossed” effect, use royal icing.  Just mix the icing a little thicker than you would for piping.

Firstly knead the sugar paste to warm it, then roll it out to the desired thickness.  Lightly grease one side of the stencil with white vegetable fat (to prevent it sticking) and place it greased side down onto the sugar paste.

Gently roll your rolling pin over the stencil then smear a thin coating of white vegetable fat over the design.

Holding the stencil in place with one hand, gently brush the lustre dust over the stencil using a soft brush.  Ensure that you use up all the dust held in your brush before lifting the stencil to reveal your work!

Cutting CC
Using the same cutter that you used to make your cookies, place it over your stenciled design and cut out the shape.  Brush your cookie with edible glue then lift the paste using a palette knife and carefully position it onto the cookie.

Gently run the tip of your finger around the edges of the cookie to secure the design.

 

Using Edible Lustre Dusts and Colours

Again, knead the sugar paste to warm it then roll it our to the desired thickness.  You can use spacers to achieve an even thickness for that professional look!  Lightly grease one side of the stencil with white vegetable fat (to prevent it sticking) and place it greased side down onto the sugar paste.
