Using bread dough stencils

Your artwork, design or company logo can be adapted into a quick, effective method to increase brand awareness, making a simple loaf into a promotional item.

  1. Prepare the dough either one large loaf or individual rolls
  2. Generously dust the dough with flour as it is shaped ready to apply stencils
  3. Lay your bread stencil on the surface
  4. Dust a generous amount of cocoa or flour over the stencil. You can sprinkle with poppy/sesame seeds or herbs and spices
  5. Remove stencil carefully
  6. Cut into the edge of the loaf to allow the dough to continue to rise without distorting the design
  7. BAKE
  8. Leave to cool and enjoy!

Artisan bread making is a growing art and many decorating techniques have been revived. Bread, loaf and rolls stencils can be used with flour, seeds and even a little cocoa.

They are quick and effective and make any handmade bread even more delicious to admire as well as eat!!
