Black & white cookies

Rubber stamped Iced biscuits - made using a Cavallini & co. stamp set and an edible ' ink pad' - stamp pad felt ( a Ranger Ink 8"x 10" cut n dry stamp pad felt costs about £4.50 and will make loads of pads! ) soaked in sugarflair colouring diluted with Culpitts dipping solution ( food grade isopropyl alcohol ).

The image doesn't always turn out perfect , so that's when I use an edible pen to add detail.

the stamping works really well on rice paper too!

    I have tried the rubber stamps, but didn't think of using the Edible pens.. Good idea ... and the cookies look awesome!

    Oh you're welcome. We actually went and bought the Cavallini stamps yesterday so we can try them ourselves!
  • Laura Bray 4y

    Great idea. Do you think that coloring the stamp with an edible pen would work? If I stamped it quickly after applying the ink?
  • Lynette Horner 4y

    Thank you Laura, I've not tried inking a stamp that way it could work but as you say it would have to be quick!!!

    They way you've put the piping around the edge reminds me of bottle caps!
  • sjschulmire 4y

    Where can you get all the items needed to make the ink pads and do the stamps have to be that kind or will any stamp work? Any advise will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Sandy

    I was daydreaming at work, thinking I had come up with a wonderfully original idea to use stamps on cookies, and you have completely beat me to the punch with these lovely, beautiful little treats! :)

    Hello! I was wondering if you have the cookie and icing recipes that you could share? I love the edges of the icing and was curious about how you did that! Thanks!

    I'd like the cookie and icing recipes too! That would be much appreciated :)

    While these cookies are beautiful, I'd think about using an ethanol susbstance (drinking alcohol such as vodka) to mix your colorant with instead of isopropyl alcohol. Isopropyl alcohol in any form is not suitable for consumption and may cause poisoning.

    Thank you for your concern, the isopropyl alchohol I use is food grade, called dipping solution or rejuvenator spirit manufactured by Culpitts and is widely used in sugarcraft for colouring by adding to paste food colourings.

    Thank you sooooo much for sharing this. I LOVE stamping and baking. This seems to be the perfect combination.
