A new year means I get to start planning the kids’ birthday party. My daughter will be 5 and my son will be turning 1 less than 30 hours apart. We are doing a combined party and this year’s theme is going to be tractors! For Christmas baking I got some “color mist” food color spray by Wilton to use on either cookies or cupcakes. With a 4.5 month-old some things just don’t get done and that was one of them. Since the holidays are done and I have a little more time on my hands I thought it would be a good time to try it. I tried it with cardstock because I didn’t have any stencil material on hand. I wasn’t sure if it would actually work but the results really surprised me.
- Standard Red Cap Blade
- Cookies, I used my grandmothers sugar cookie recipe
- Color Mist Food Coloring Spray
- Force: 65
- Speed: 10/10
- Offset: .25
- Passes: 1
- I made up my design in MTC using a silhouette of a tractor. Since this was the first time I have tried it and not sure if it was going to work or not I used a simple outline.
- I hired my baker (AKA my daughter) to help with the cookies since after all it is her birthday party.
- Once the cookies were cooled down I took my stencil and placed it on my cookie and sprayed away.
- Carefully lifted the stencil off the cookie since it was wet. Next time I will use a stencil material because the spray made the paper wet and curl.
- And voila I had an edible stenciled cookie.
I also tried it on cookies with icing that had slightly hardened. It worked, but again I would use a plastic stencil material for it.
I think i’ll be making some of these for their party since they were pretty easy, as long as i’m feeling brave enough to try different colors!!
