Decorative Garnish Food Stencil


My last post featured french toast sammies with a heart shaped garnish of cinnamon sugar. This is  how I did it.

First take a piece of card stock and cut a design into. You can go simple with a couple of hearts by folding the card stock in half and going old school valentine. Or you can get creative and design a phrase or pretty design and cut it out with an X-acto knife.

Lay the stencil flay on your food or drink.

Sprinkle your choice of garnish over the stencil. Carefully, remove the stencil.

Voilà! You have a perfect decoration on you food.

You can leave a message for your lovey, or spice up a dinner you are serving to friends or just enjoy a pretty snack. Whatever you decide, what an easy way to take your cooking to the next level of awesome-ness!

This idea is originally for coffee garnishes. I love the idea of stenciling a message in onto a cappuccino with cocoa powder like this, but why limit your self. You could do it on lots of different foods. So get creative. If you try this post a comment and share what you tried and if it was successful.
