Create beautiful edible decorations with this set of Snowflake cutters are really easy to use, and a little practice makes perfect!
For best results, you must use sugar flower paste – this is strong enough to be rolled out very thinly, which eliminates the risk of your paste becoming stuck in the cutter, and will release easily.
Use a non-stick board, roll out flower paste very thinly in a longish narrow strip. Use a little icing sugar or, if you prefer, use petal base (this helps to stop your paste from drying out), if necessary, to prevent sticking. Position vertically.
Place chosen cutter at right angles (ie. horizontally) to paste and cut, pressing firmly down. ‘Scrub’ the board to ensure the cutter edge goes through the paste. Pick up cutter, and press ejecter / backing strip to eject the shape. Continue doing this for chosen shapes working down your strip of paste. Then if you want more shapes, re roll and continue cutting etc. (NOTE: If you are not sure whether cutter has given a clean cut, turn over and rub around cutter edge with finger to neaten!)
You may add shapes to cake immediately, sticking with edible glue or leave to dry first. If dry, stick to surface using a stronger royal icing or sugarpaste mashed down with a little water!
