At Wilton, we believe that stencils provide a great sweet treat decorating option, and we challenged ourselves to find a way to make stenciling easier. Traditional cake decorating stencils tend to shift and move when icing or color is applied and the process can be cumbersome. We began development for a low-tack, food-safe adhesive — one that would keep the stencil in place without damaging the iced surface of the treat. The result — Wilton Stick-N-Stay Adhesive Stencils.
With a food-safe, non-transferable adhesive on the back, the stencil stays in place through multiple uses. The flexible material shapes to the decorating surface, so edges and outlines are clean and well defined. These new features make it easier to stencil on almost any decorating area of any size, like the side of a cake or on top of a cupcake.
Stick-N-Stay adhesive stencils also make it easier to create many different effects in decorating. You can brush on Pearl Dust edible accents for a shimmery design, or spray with Color Mist food color spray for an airbrushed look. For more dimensional designs, apply thinned royal icing, tinted buttercream for a slightly raised or bas-relief effect. The possibilities are endless! Watch while Angie Thayer shows you three of the techniques in the Stick-N-Stay Adhesive Stencil video (below).
And finally, we even made cleanup easier. The Stick-N-Stay adhesive stencils are washable, so you just need to rinse and let dry between uses. To protect the adhesive side of the stencil, return stencils to the backing sheet for storage.
Three sets are available in this new release: hearts, nature and scrolls. Each set contains four 2.5 in. (6,35 cm) dia. round stencils perfectly sized for cupcakes and cookies and two linear designs for borders that measure approx. 5 in x 0.75 in. (12,7 cm x 1,9 cm).
We’re so excited about the new Stick-N-Stay adhesive stencils. Use them to easily add intricate designs to fondant, Candy Melts candy and treats topped with Color Flow or royal icing. We can’t wait to see the beautiful creations made with our new stencils and to hear about your experience.
