BUT, now through June 7 we are featuring our annual stencil sale - with ALL stencils 20% off -  and we have also put our tipless bags also on sale for 20% off. This is the perfect time to grab stencils for all your summer holidays and event, such as Father's Day, July 4th, weddings, graduation, back to school, picnics, and more! 

The first half of this live tutorial features Sarah explaining all about the tipless bags we sell here at The Cookie Countess. She also shows us how to cut the tips of the bags and how you might also choose to use the with a tip.

In the second half of our tutorial, Hillary talks bout stenciling with royal icing. Getting the right consistency is, as always, half the battle.  So she explains what to look for mixing your stencil icing, as well as best practices for applying, and scraping the icing on your stencil. Below you'll find links to some of the products Hillary used. 

The MiniMat is a silicone mat that's perfect for rolling out cookie dough, fondant, or gum paste. It's non-stick, so your dough won't stick to it, and it's super easy to clean. When stenciling I will place it under my cookie so my cookie doesn't slide.  It's seriously one of my favorite tools for cookie decorating! Plus, the MiniMat has a grid on it, so you can easily measure out your dough or fondant to get the perfect size for your cookies. It's seriously a game-changer!

I love how durable and high-quality the MiniMat is. It's made to last, and it's perfect for both home bakers and professional decorators.

Say hello to your new favorite spatula! The Cookie Countess, Hillary, wanted a spatula that was strong enough to hold up to the stiffest icing and was easy to clean.

The small size is perfect for spreading your icing when stenciling!
