First up, let’s just take a moment to admire my (freakin awesome!) new rolling pin. Made in Poland by Stodola, this laser cut rolling pin features a design which is a medley of different dog breeds, I love it! Stodola has heaps of designs to choose from, including a good selection of dog breed specific pins, some very awesome cat rolling pins, as well as some farmyard creatures. Their pig pin is exceptionally cute!
As we had a 3-year-old’s birthday party to host this week, what better time than now to test out my new favourite kitchen accessory and treat the little lovelies? I even whipped up a special batch especially for the pooches (I will be posting my deluxe dog treat recipe next month).
So after the first cookie run with my new Stodola rolling pin, what did I think of it?
It’s awesome! These rolling pins are the perfect tool for any home baker. With almost no effort, they make ordinary cookies so much more special. It’s an easy and fuss free way to add some personality to your baking, and I was really happy with the results. I was concerned that cookie dough could get caught in the pattern and ‘munt’ the overall design aesthetics, so I dusted the pin and the cookie dough with icing sugar first and that worked a treat!
My now three-year-old Eliza loved the dog imprints so much she has suggested that we also need a rolling pin “with all the cats”. I expect that she will be putting in requests for a fresh batch of “dog cookies” often.
