They're simple to use! Just roll out Chocolate Paste, emboss the pattern, cut out around it with whatever cookie cutter you used for the cookies, and attach with a tiny bit of corn syrup or glucose! Don't want to make your own Chocolate Paste? We sell Fondarific Ready Made, or if you haven't already, try Fondarific's flavored fondants. They're a hybrid between Chocolate Paste and fondant, so they have that silky Chocolate Paste texture. Aaaaaand their Cinnamon Roll Fondant is a veritable FOOD MIRACLE. It tastes exactly like a cinnamon bun! The ECG has stopped using Royal Icing on her cookies entirely because of this stuff!
Want to make your own Chocolate Paste, just follow our Recipe Below! It's simple to make, and even easier now that we have Colored Candy Melts, so you don't even need to color it!
⅔ cup white chocolate chips or rough-chopped Chocolate Candy Melts
3 Tablespoons of Corn Syrup
Melt the chocolate in 15 second intervals in the microwave, stirring frequently. Once the chocolate is melted, add oil based candy color if you like. Then whisk in the corn syrup until it is combined. The corn syrup will seize the chocolate and it will become a paste. Stir thouroughly. Wrap in plastic wrap to set up. The time it takes to set up varies greatly depending on kitchen temperature, about an hour is average. Refrigerate to speed the process.
When ready to use, knead the chocolate paste until it is pliable and soft. You can work out any chunks by kneading it. If you can’t get the chunks to knead out, throw the whole thing back in the microwave and melt it all the way down then whisk it together. Wrap it up in plastic wrap and let is set up again. It should be nice and smooth once it is set up!
And Sweet Stamp just added a bunch of their own DEBOSSING stamps to their line. These leave a raised pattern, so the lettering looks like perfectly piped royal icing!
And don't forget...for custom messages, we have mini embossers in Script, Modern, even new symbols and underlines, so that you can really let your cookies do the talking!
