Stenciled Cookies

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.

Materials:

Settings:

  • Force:  65
  • Speed:  10/10
  • Offset:  .25
  • Passes:  1

Steps:

  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.
  2. I hired my baker (AKA my daughter) to help with the cookies since after all it is her birthday party.                                                                
  3. Once the cookies were cooled down I took my stencil and placed it on my cookie and sprayed away.                                
  4. 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.
  5. 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!!
