Valek

Embossing Rolling Pin

Roll to Decorate

Made in Poland, Valek wooden rolling pins are a roll in the right direction. They give your baked creations an ornate finish.

Roll the pin over fresh dough once. The laser-cut grooves on the Beech wood emboss intricate designs. So when you take your cookies or pies out of the oven, the indentations transform into crisp golden
patterns. You can even use one of the pins on fondant to make a finished cake look bakery bought.

Maker Zuzia Kozerska really enjoys baking but wanted to achieve professional-looking decorations in less time. Her sister pointed her in the direction of some vintage rolling pins, which explains why Valek’s pins have an heirloom air to them.

Countless batches of cookies and pastries later, Zuzia fine tuned the recipe to effective embossing with her final design. Now anyone can embellish their baking, beautifully.

    @Ann It is possible for the future. Right now we are focusing of these 2 patterns but these will become popular we may consider including more patterns.

    So Monika, I take it one would have to use a conventional rolling pin to get the dough to the correct thickness and then use the Valek to impress the flattened surface of the dough, lest one will have a mashup of cross-over patterns if one used the Valek to bring the dough to the proper thickness. Am I correct in this assumption?

    @steve Yes Steve you are correct. It is much better to use a regular pin to roll out the dough and after that use Valek just to emboss the pattern.

    I bought one of your rolling pins for my son-in-law last year and you were able to put his company logo for his inn in Slovakia on it. It was a huge hit, and he is still making cookies to go with espresso with it. It is a beautiful piece of work that will last for years. Your customer service was also top notch and I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a hand-made gift that will be passed down to the next generation.

    What would you use the different sizes for?

  • Monika

    @Jeanne The idea of the small rolling pin was that it was made for children. The size of the handles fits perfect for their small hands. This could be a toy for playing with play dough but also their first real baking tool that they could use in the kitchen with their parents or grandparents.

    But adults are also welcome to use small ones ;)

    Hi Darlene, as long as you order before midnight on 12/19, you shouldn't have an issue.

    I have always wanted something like this. They are beautiful! Other than handwashing & no extended contact with water, is there anything we need to do to keep the pin in top condition?

  • Monika

    @Tricia Basically the only thing that can harm your pin is prolonged contact with water.

    Rolling Pins are made from hard beech wood and protected by mineral oil twice before they go to the customers. These are very long lasting tools and do not need a lot of care :)

    @Sue Here is a perfect recipe for shortbread cookies that I have tried a thousand times :) Cookies always comes great with it:

    230 grams unsalted butter

    175 grams confectioner’s {icing} sugar

    1 egg {room temperature}

    1.5-3 teaspoons extract or emulsion {any flavor}

    1 teaspoon salt

    400-425 grams all-purpose flour

    Cream together butter and sugar.

    Add eggs and extract and mix well.

    Sift together flour and salt, add to wet mixture little by little until well incorporated.

    Roll, emboss and cut cookies into desired shapes, dusting with flour as necessary.

    Bake cookies at 200 Celsius for 7-8 minutes until tops are appear dry rather than shiny.

    The secret is to pre -heat well the oven, and apply the right amount of pressure on the dough.

    Hello Monika- I just discovered this fabulous rolling pen idea but wonder if there are any with Christmas designs. ALSO how long does it take for them to arrive once I was to order one.

    Hi Geneene, shipping time will depend on your location, but you'll get an estimate as you go through the checkout process. Typically it is 5-7 days. The snowflake pin is pretty Christmasy, right? :)

    If there is enough demand, we'll look to get more holiday themed patterns from Valek in the future.
