  • Glycerin increases the shelf life in baked goods like cupcakes and cakes keeping the baked goods moist and fresh.
  • It helps to keep sugar food soft.
  • Useful for thickening, stabilizing, and sweetening.
  • Resistant to freezing.
  • Help with elasticity in royal icing.
  • Content: 4.05 fl oz [120ml]
  • Kosher Certified.


  • For baking: Dry ingredients like flour are best measured by weight rather than volume. For every 500 grams, or roughly 1.1 pounds of flour or other dry ingredients, use 1 tsp glycerin.
  • For Fondant: Add 2-3tsp of Glycerin to 2 pounds of rolled fondant to help keep it smooth and avoid cracking.
  • For keeping candy soft: Add 2 tsp Glycerin to every pound of candy (like caramel, taffy, candy centers, etc.).
  • For Royal Icing: Add 6 drops of Glycerin to every Royal Icing recipe that starts with 2 pounds of Powdered sugar to keep from hardening.
  • In American Style Buttercream: To help creaminess and to help avoid cracks, add 2 tsp Glycerin to every 4 cups of icing.
  • To Moisten Dried out Food Coloring: Add an equal amount of glycerin to completely dried food coloring to rehydrate. If color is thick but not solid, add a few drops at a time and mix until desired consistency is achieved.
  • To Clean Art Brushes: Rub a few drops of Glycerin into the bristles of an art brush to remove excess color and rinse clean.
  • Just for Fun Homemade Bubble Solution: Mix 1/2 cup Liquid Dish detergent (like Dawn), 4.5 cups water, and 4 Tbsp Glycerin. The longer the solution sits, the bigger the bubbles will get before popping.


  • Store in a dry, cool place, away from direct sunlight.
  • Shelf Life: 1 year

All cookie cutters have a thick, double edge for sharp and precise dough cutting.

Our cookie cutters are measured at their longest point. This means that if you purchase a 3.5 inches long cookie cutter, we will find the longest side of the image you provide and resize it to 3.5 inches when designing the cookie cutter. Some irregular shapes may appear smaller than others.

The easiest way to prevent cookie cutters from sticking to your dough is by dipping your cookie cutter in flour with each cut. You may use corn starch if cutting into fondant.

When cutting, wiggle your cutter for best results. 

If you find the cookie cutter is getting really sticky, wipe it off with a damp paper towel or clean baking towel. Don’t wash them in the middle of cutting out cookies, unless dried dough begins to distort the cookie details.

Cold cookie dough will always work best.
