“Ever since I discovered culinary stencils a few years ago, I have been hooked! I simply love using them as they their beautiful patterns add such interest to cakes and cookies, whether subtly or by making a statement. They are extremely easy to use, so much so that I always encourage my students to try them out in class. There are various approaches you can take when using stencils, so they are extremely versatile. In fact I have dedicated a complete chapter to stencilling in my ‘ contemporary cake bible’ book. Have you experimented with stencilling yet? ” Lindy
