Have you ever found yourself just a tinge envious of those artful baristas whipping up little works of art on your latte like some sort of hotshot bartender? If you have — and I know you have — Megan Herbert’s charming little cake and coffee stencils are just the thing to bring out your closet food artist.

And there is no need to learn how to make those complicated foam cloverleaves because now you can use Icelandic-based Herbert’s quaint mini sketches to adorn your cupcakes and cappuccinos with the cutest cocoa landscapes. Inspired by Iceland’s emphasis on coffee and conversation, now your java can be worth a thousand words.
