How often have you turned down a dish or drink because it looks terrible? Very often.

How to Make A Perfect Cappuccino Stencil Design?

How good it looks isn’t mainly about the stencil design but depends on how you prepare it. Here are a few steps to craft a perfect stencil design. Let’s dig in.

Step 1 – Preparing the Milk

Achieving a fine froth layer on top is how you lay the foundation where your design will stand. Dip the steaming wand inside the milk just below the surface to do that. Start the machine and tip the pitcher on one side to make a vortex. This will help the milk to create a voluminous froth layer.

Step 2 – Leveling Up

Remove any bubbles that might cause trouble during the process. Make sure the layer on top is flat and even. Otherwise, the design will form somewhat differently. Give the pitcher a few swirls to level it up and pop the bubbles.

Step 3 – Pouring

Carefully pour the milk over your expresso and wait a few seconds. Once the layer is settled, your drink is ready for the design.

Step 4 – Stenciling

Place the cappuccino stencil over the cup or hold it firmly. Ensure it doesn’t move,, or the shape will be messed up. The easiest way to do that is by gradually gradually having the rim and sprinkling the powder. The topping can be anything that comes in a fine powder form, including nutmeg, chocolate powder, brown sugar, ground-up cookies, etc. Moreover, you must remember that the shorter the distance between the stencil and the cup, the finer the details will be.
