If you have ever struggled with getting paste out of your cutters this is the product for you (even if you haven't it's a great and easy cutter to use). Because each cutter has its own built in ejector you will never have to dig out those fiddly bits of paste again.
Simply roll out your paste to about 1-2mm thick on a non-stick board. Use a little icing sugar or cornflour to prevent sticking. Press the Clikstix down firmly - make sure you only hold the sides and do not press the ejector at this point or it will flatten the letter before you have cut it out. Give the cutter a bit of a scrub on your board to make sure the paste is completely cut through.
Lift the cutter with the shapes still in (if one or two fall out - no problem ...it saves the ejection!) and then press down on the ejector to let the cut shapes drop out. Quick and simple but it does take a bit of practice to get your paste thickness right.
We recommend you use either SFP Flower Paste or Modelling Gum Paste as ordinary sugarpaste tends to stick. You can also use up to a 50:50 mix of gumpaste to sugarpaste.
You can also try making modelling paste yourself by adding Gum Tragacanth to Sugarpaste, kneading well and leaving airtight for a couple of hours.
