The Partiologist: Stenciled Buttercream Cookies!

Stenciled Buttercream Cookies!

It is because of my daughter's love for buttercream I had to find a way to stencil on cookies.  I beg and plead, but no matter how hard I try, she still wants buttercream cookies!  So yes, stenciling on buttercream CAN be done and I'm going to show you how.

Stenciled Buttercream Cookies


It started with a cookie for a 50th birthday and because of not wanting to ruin my cookie with my handwriting, I had to figure out a way.


Remember these?














The cookies are buttercream and stenciled!

Next, I decided to make Easter Cookies using a stencil.

And watching the video will show you exactly how they were made.


Are you ready to stencil?

Only take one cookie out of the freezer at a time to decorate. 

It must be frozen while stenciling or you'll smoosh the buttercream.

    1. Thank you so much, buttercream is a favorite for sure! I let them sit overnight to form a crust, then package. You can only stack if packaged.

  6. It's always wonderful to find another use for "stuff" (aka stencils) we already have which can now be used for another purpose. Your lettering is so perfect. Yes - did notice a tiny bit of touch up - but so what? These are so unique.

    1. Thank you, so happy to find new uses, right? When I colored the black, I only colored a small amount of frosting and used a LOT of black coloring. :)
