Rubber-Stamped Cookies How-To

Rubber-Stamped Cookies How-To
You will need:
- Your baked & iced cookies
- Assorted rubber stamps to fit your cookies
- Paper towels
- Soft-gel food coloring
- Royal icing for extra details

1. Let your iced cookies dry overnight, maybe longer if in a humid climate. Do not rush the drying time. If not fully dry the icing will crack when being stamped.

2. To make your own ink pad, fold up a paper towel and squeeze a few drops of the food color onto it. Use this to blot the food color directly onto the stamp you are going to use.

3. Press your chosen stamp onto the cookie holding it there for a few seconds. Avoid moving the stamp from side to side, or you'll end up with a smeared imprint. If the pattern has not fully transferred to the cookie you can hand finish it by using an edible food coloring pen.

4. The stamped cookies can then be hand painted using diluted food color, embellished with piped details or left as they are!

*NOTE: We have observed various posts on the topic of food grade versus non food-grade rubber stamps -- all rubber stamps used by Fancy Flours have always been from a local craft store or from a rubber stamp dealer on-line. The decision to use one rubber stamp over another rubber stamp is a personal decision -- food grade or plain old rubber stamp. *Note, also that we are recommending the technique to use a paper towel versus a felt stamp pad as we think it is easier and also clean up is a snap -- just toss the paper towels.
