Start by smooshing a bit of Sculpey into a circle. Use whatever colour you want, but don’t take my word for it that this is good for edible stuff. (Hashtag don’t sue?)
Mould a little handle for each stamp (a lumpy thing is fine — nothin’ fancy) and use pointy clay tools (or plain old toothpicks) to make your design in the stamp. Make sure to do a mirror image of the design you want on the cookie.
Bake the pieces as directed, let them cool, and then attach the (lumpy) handles with a bit of superglue.
Make your favourite sugar cookie recipe and stamp those suckers!
Bake the cookies as directed, and see how your designs turn out. My Cs turned out much better than my “2015 Clarke” cookies, so simple is best.
Now, since these aren’t real cookie stamps, they tend to get gummed up between batches. I had to use a toothpick to scrap out bits of dough before re-stamping, and I ended up throwing out the stamps after I finished the last batch.
Anybody try this? Did it work better for you? Or should I just make it my mission to try again and do a better job? #deepquestions
