With the Holidays fast approaching, I thought it might be fun to explore the use of stenciling on foods. A little research quickly revealed some fun sites and ideas!
Jan Dressler of Dressler Stencil Company, shows us how to stencil on cookies on the DIY network. (Stay tuned for an upcoming interview with Jan on Stencil Talk!)
Canadian Living Magazine shows us how to dust a stencil design on the top of a cake.
Inexpensive cookie and cupcake stencils can be found at ShopBakersNook.
And of course, the Queen of All Things Good, Martha Stewart, has a multitude of stenciling ideas for food items on her wonderful site. This one, in particular caught MY eye:
They are called Tuile Leaves and are made using a leaf stencil, formed around a rolling pin to give them the illusion of floating leaves. Too clever!
I had so much fun doing this research that I will bring you a few more such sites over the next few weeks.
