A debosser can also be used to create designs on fondant, a type of sugar paste that is commonly used for decorating cakes, cupcakes, and other baked goods. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to use a debosser on fondant:
Prepare your fondant: Knead and roll out your fondant to your desired thickness, about 3-4mm is ideal for most debossers.
Add cornflour: Dust your work surface, rolling pin and debosser with a light coating of cornflour with a brush to prevent the fondant from sticking.
Choose your design: Select the design you want to use from your debosser. Most debossers come with a variety of design options to choose from.
Place the debosser: Place the rolled out fondant onto the debosser and use a rolling pin to roll over it, making sure to apply an even pressure all over the surface of the debosser.
Cut out the fondant: Use a cookie cutter or knife to cut out the fondant around the debossed design. Repeat this process for the rest of the fondant.
Decorate your cake or cookie: Once the fondant pieces have been cut out, you can use them to decorate your cake or cupcakes. Place the debossed fondant pieces onto your cake, smoothing out any air bubbles or wrinkles with your fingers. You can use a bit of water as glue to make the fondant stick to the cookie.
Add finishing touches: You can also add additional decorations to your cake or cookie, such as piping, edible glitter, or other embellishments, to complete the look.
Using a debosser on fondant is a great way to add an extra touch of elegance to your baked goods. With a little practice, you can create intricate designs that will make your cakes and cupcakes stand out. Just be sure to handle the fondant gently and take your time as you work to ensure that your finished designs look their best.
