Simple Baking: DIY Confectioner Sugar Cake Stencils

EORtitanic_cake_shakerHere’s the challenge: a Titanic cookie cake.

I used my favorite cookie bar recipe trick, add a tablespoon of strawberry jam, to make perfectly moist chocolate chip cookie cake. The next request was to make it a Titanic themed cake. After I baked the cookie cake I wasn’t sure how I was going to pull off the Titanic detail.

I figured I’d just mix up some chocolate frosting and pipe it on. Wrong. I was out of butter. But I had plenty of confectioner sugar (10x sugar, as we always called it growing up).

How to make a Confection Sugar Stencil on a Cake:

1. Draw your design on a piece of paper and cut out the area that you want to show on the cake.

2. Spray the back of the paper with a mist of water to weigh it down and help it lay flat on the cake.


3. Generously shake on the sugar with a stainless steel shaker.

4. Add extra details with whipped cream, chocolate chips, colored sprinkles or other candy embellishments you may have!


This is such a simple and time saving way to DIY decorate your special cake – it also reduces extra fat and sugar you’d get if you covered the cake in frosting.
