Spray food colouring






Ice your cookies and allow the cookies to fully dry (overnight). Make a stencil using cardstock paper. I used a craft knife and a ruler and cut strips that were 1cm wide, and at least 2cm longer than the width of the cookie. Make sure you cover your work area fully. I would also suggest covering your mouth and nose with a cloth.

Very lightly spray your chosen color over the entire cookie. Once the first layer of colour has dried (maybe 10 minutes), place your stencil at a diagonal across the cookie. Spray lightly with colour.

Once the first stripes have dried (about 10 minutes), lay your stencil across the opposite diagonal (as shown), and spray your colour. Voila! Gingham patterned cookies!
