WHAT IS IT?
A set of five stencils for decorating the tops of your cappuccinos before you add the chocolate powder or cinnamon.
IS IT ANY GOOD?
The stencils are made of a thin plastic, just smaller than the top of s standard coffee mug. You place a stencil on top of your cappuccino froth and sprinkle your chocolate topping over it, when you lift the stencil the chocolate will have created a design. The key is removing the stencil without disturbing the design or spilling the loose chocolate powder that has collected on top of the stencil to spoil the lines of the design.
The stencils are light enough to be supported by the froth, when it comes to removing it I use a cocktail stick to prise up one edge enough to pick the stencil up with my fingers but without disturbing the froth. There's a knack to it but once you've found a method that works for you you'll be creating coffee masterpieces in no time.
The designs cut out of the stencils are all basic but striking once the stencil has been removed, it is cut sharply to ensure a smooth and defined outline and this is effective. My favourite is a heart inside a circle as the simplicity is perfect when filled in with chocolate powder on top of creamy froth. I think it's best to take your time sprinkling the chocolate or cinnamon to fill in the design as if you try to do it too quickly you can dislodge the stencil slightly and distort the finished pattern.
The stencils are supplied in a small round tin, they rinse easily and are also dishwasher safe although easily lost in the dishwasher. Each set costs £6 and there are also Christmas designs available which feature Christmas trees, angels and stars.
5 Dooyoo Stars.
