Stencil FAQ

Yes, they are. To make sure that Sugar Vanilla Stencils complies with EU food contact laws all our stencils are cut from a UK produced plastic that complies with EU, Swiss and US (FDA) regulations and carries appropriate certification. We also keep track of all roll numbers our stencils are cut from. 

Of course! Wash your stencil in warm soapy water using the tips of your fingers to remove any excess lustre dust or icing and take care not to lift any of the more delicate parts of the stencil. Rinse and allow to dry flat. Store flat or in plastic sleeves once dry. They are then ready to reuse. Please be aware that very dark colours, such as a black edible tint, may stain the stencil. 

We like to store our stencils flat in a plastic dust free box. You can find the boxes we use under miscellaneous tools. Or you can store them in plastic sleeves in an album or filing folder.

All our stencils are 190 microns thick, which is 0.19mm thick. This means that you can use them easily for royal icing or melted chocolate and have a neat finish, but at the same time they are thin enough to be used with lustre dusts and air brushing. 

For US and Canadian customers 190 micons is equal to 7.5 mil (0.0075").

No. Our stencils are cut from food safe plastic made in the UK, with EU and US food safe certification. Mylar is a brand name for a type of plastic produced in the USA, and while food safe approved in the US, it does not have food contact certification in the EU (the type we would use for stencils, other types do). This is not to mean that you cannot use stencils that are cut from Mylar, but as a UK company it was important for us to use UK produced and approved plastic.
