I've seen where some names don't really hit the mark or don't sound like a baking type name.  So here goes.  I do cakes, cupcakes, and cookies so I need an all encompassing name and I do not have a storefront so I don't think I need to use "Bakery" or "Shop" in my name.   I have come up with "Sweet' N Me Up"   Cakeymom
I'm just researching at this point.  But I have some money to invest and I am interesting in looking into the possibility of a worthwhile venture.    Cakeymom
I'm referring to the quantity made when I say Mass Production.  In that, a Cricut or Silhouette would not be able to handle the large volume of stencil cutting.
Hi I have been wanting to start a home business and the thought of producing cookie stencils is very interesting. I wonder what machines are being used???? There is no way it is a Cricut or Silhouette as you would burn up one of those babies mass producing stencils each:-D week. Does anyone have an idea what machine is being used??? PM Please......

Please give Jennifer Bratko's SMBC recipe a try.  She outlines the steps and why she does what she does.  I have made SMBC before trying her recipe and methods and I found that this is so so much better.   Here's the link   http://fromscratchsf.wordpress.com/2011/03/08/tutorial-swiss-meringue-buttercream/     Hope this helps!   Cakeymom
I have only given out two recipes.  Both are to persons in another state.  One former co-worker and one to a second cousin of mine that I am close to.    I did however give a version of another recipe to someone that I could not bring myself to say no to.  And when he tried it the recipe did not come out like mine so he asked me to bake the item for him.   OOPS!!!   Cakeymom
For your side's you could try making a ring of parchment to place inside your pans and that should end the problem your having. Hope this helps. Cakeymom
I just ordered PME tips in sizes 0, 00, 1, 1.5, and 2 to use with the Ez Tracer that has a stand that was built by a person with a cake/cookie shop.  Cost me 103.75 for the stand, so I am looking forward to begin to make cookies with my new tracer and from what I can surmise these tips are much better than Wilton's.   I was able to purchase the tips at a 40% off discount yesterday from a sight called Cookie Creator.  I am excited!!!!!!!!   Cakeymom
I am elated!!!!!!!!   I found it and the person that modified the EZ Tracer just located one more set of modification parts in their basement while cleaning two weeks ago.  They are currently looking for a new manufacturer for the parts but are having a hard time getting it to be cost effective, so I may have the last one.  Talking about fate.    I ordered it today and can't wait to get started on cookies!  If you are never looked at cookies made by Hungry Hippopotamus...
Any other ideas???   Maybe a less expensive Kopykake version?????     Cakeymom
