Window Shopping Wednesday - Happy Birthday Stencils


There's always a demand for birthday cakes, and as I've made a few, I'd like to get a Happy Birthday stencil or embosser. I haven't seen too many embossers though - there are a couple around, along with some kits to make your own, but the ones I saw weren't really what I was looking for.

I started looking at some stencils instead as there seems to be a larger variety.

To use a stencil, place it on top of the sugarpaste and smear a thin layer of royal icing over the top with a pallet knife. Be careful not to go over the edge of the stencil! Gently lift the stencil away from the sugarpaste and allow the royal icing to dry.

I've been looking at the following stencils this week:

This Jem stencil is from Cake Stuff. It is currently priced at £1.75. Jem are a well known sugarcraft company, so this seems like a great buy! This stencil is perfect for cakes, but I think it might be a bit big for cupcakes.

You can find the direct link here.



This Jem stencil is also from Cake Stuff. It is currently priced at £2.20. It's smaller size and circular arrangement make it perfect for cupcakes.

This designer stencil is from My Cake Decorating Shop. It is currently priced at £5.50. I can't find any details of the size, but I like the design. The tab makes it easier to lift the stencil once applied too.

This designer stencil is also from My Cake Decorating Shop. It is currently priced at £8.99. I love the more cursive style of this stencil - it's perfect for ornate cakes!

Which one would you choose?
