This Happy Birthday inscription stencil is manufactured by JEM products from laser cut food safe materials. Arranged in a circular shape, it is perfect for the top of cupcakes.
The overall size of the stencil is approximately 70mm square with the design being about 50mm in diameter.
It is very versatile as it can be used with all sorts of different media to produce different effects.
Simply apply food colour while holding the stencil in place. Powder, liquid or paste colours can be used by letting down with alcohol or rejuvenator fluid and dabbing on with a small soft sponge. This technique is best used on Sugarpaste or Royal Icing.
You can also use petal dust or lustre as a powder simply dusted onto the design with a soft dry brush remove excess powder before lifting the stencil.
For softer icing such as cupcake frostings the ideal method would be an airgun – this is also brilliant on other types of icing as you can get detailed shading into the design with practice.
To get a more 3D effect on harder icings such as sugarpaste and Royal Icing you scrape a little royal icing over the stencil. Carefully lift the stencil off to leave a raised image.
