Stamped Cookie Tutorial (Echo Park & Great Impressions)

Hi Everyone

Please note that the Blog Hop and competitions previously detailed on this post have now closed. You can see who won my prizes here and you can see all the Echo Park Winners here. I encourage you to visit all the fabulous blogs that were on the hop - you can see a complete list on the Echo Park Blog.

Stamped Icing Tutorial
I have used the Berry Twig Stamp to create some cookie toppers. I first published this idea a couple of years ago - but I love this updated version!


    1. Roll the icing between 2 sheets of non-stick baking parchment. (You may need to knead a little cornflour into your icing paste beforehand to make it less sticky) Also, lightly dust the surface of the icing with cornstarch (again to remove any trace of stickiness )
    2. Spread some gel icing onto an acrylic stamping block
    3. Use another acrylic stamping block rubbed on top to spread the coloring thinly 
    4. Ink your stamp with the colouring – patting gently to give an even coating
    5. Press stamp lightly but firmly into the icing
    6. You should have a stamped impression
    7. Repeat stamped image all over the icing. You will need to "re-ink" your stamp each time
    8. Cut out images using a cookie cutter and leave to dry thoroughly
    9. Your icing is ready to use!
If some of your images don't turn out so well - especially when you are trying this for the first time - just knead the icing to create a pale colored version and use as colored icing!

I baked some simple cookies cut from pre-made sheets of sweet pastry, and "glued" the toppers to the cookies with a simple icing made from icing sugar and water.


They look great when finished and of course you can experiment to use any stamp and shape too. I then made some boxes using the Echo Park This and That Christmas Collection

Treat Boxes
 


To create these boxes - I modified this file and cut with my Cameo. The paper and stickers are from the This and That Christmas Elements Sticker Sheet.
