New baker, help with non-slip surface for cookies.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello!  This is my first post and I am a new baker. I will be baking decorated cookies with my nieces this week (I have them all week) and I was wondering if there is a surface mat like a silpat that will keep cookies in place/non-slip and keep them still while we decorate. I tried the silpat yesterday and they're still moving around a little. For some reason I thought the rubber on silpat might keep them still, but silpats are of course primarily a non-stick surface, so not sure what I was thinking (I'm new :))  Would like to keep the cookies still so they don't move when we take our decorating bags and spatulas to them.  I can keep them on the pan that they baked in, but we are planning to bake all the shapes first, then the next day, just decorate them all (remember, I have them for one week and I'm trying to make the fun last all week ;) Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

hi and welcome--

 

y'know the nubbly shelf liner we like to put down to put our glasses on in the cupboard? 

 

that works well and you can wash it off after--

 

i usually use this under a cake that's sitting on a cake board but if it's clean it won't hurt the cookies and they will not slip--

 

like this  http://www.walmart.com/c/kp/shelf-liners/page/1?sort_by=5

 

but you can get a roll for a few bucks--even grocery stores carry it of course

I often use a regular sized silicone hot pad (trivet).

but most grocery stores do sell that non-slip shelf liner fairly inexpensively that K8 talks about. It probably does work a lot better than my hot pad.

Of course we all have our limits, but how can you possibly find your boundaries unless you explore as far and as wide as you possibly can? I would rather fail in an attempt at something new and uncharted than safely succeed in a repeat of something

Thank you for your comment MB, I have enjoyed your posts as well xo

 

I will look into a silicone trivet for myself.  Love learning about tools.  I will try the shelf liners and post again :) 

 

Thank you all sincerely!
