Instructions and Tips for Use
For cake decoration other pastes may be used but I find Squires Sugar Florist Paste (SFP) to be the best as it is designed with sugarcraft flowers in mind.
Roll out your paste thinly on a non-stick board.
Very lightly dust the top surface of your paste with Cornflour (cornstarch) a tip here is to put the flour into a muslin cloth and simply wipe across the top surface – that way you don’t get too much onto the paste.
Cut out the petal shape. The "Mexican hat" technique is the best for this. Thread a wire through if you want to add it to a wired sugar spray. Make the leaf by rolling out the paste, smooth the edges with a dogbone or ball tool and wire if required. You can vein for more realism using a veiner or veining tool.
The paste can be coloured before cutting out, and/or painted or dusted with powder colours when dry.
For extra lifelike flowers and leaves, try using these cutters in conjunction with our range of Culpitt Veiners and thin the petal edges with a ball or dogbone tool.
