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.
The cookies are buttercream and stenciled!
Next, I decided to make Easter Cookies using a stencil.
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.
Crusting Buttercream Frosting

Cream butter, shortening, and extract until creamy and smooth.
Gradually add powdered sugar and milk.
Mix thoroughly on medium speed until smooth and creamy. Do not overmix or mix on high speed.
It's a Buttercream Day!
