Size : 4″H x 17.2″W, is made from 10 mil, food-grade Mylar for culinary applications.
Food-safe Mylar cake-stencil specifically designed for cake decorating. Use on buttercream, fondant covered cakes and cookies.
When using a cake-stencil on a buttercream covered cake it is important that the cake be firm and cold. For best results place the cake in the freezer for 10 – 15 minutes and then use the buttercream of your choice to apply the cake-stencil pattern. Use an of set spatula or a plastic scraper to apply a thin layer of buttercream. The cake-stencil can be held in place with toothpicks or flexi-tape. If your cake is too cold, bits of buttercream will set inside the cake-stencil and will be pulled away from the cake as the cake-stencil is removed.
Royal icing must be used when stenciling on a fondant covered cake. Hold the cake-stencil in place with toothpicks or flexi-tape. Spread the royal icing in a thin layer over the cake-stencil. Clean the cake-stencil properly for best result when doing repeats.
It does take some practice to get the hang of stenciling. The results are worth the effort.
Tip: For practice purpose use the same colour buttercream as the cake buttercream. This way you can easily scrape the practice frosting off without damaging the cake.
These cake-stencils can also be used for applying a design on cushions, walls or any surface that is flat.
