How to Use the Briar Rose CuttersCut out your calyx cutter and then cut 5 petals - these can be frilled and cupped to add a more realistic appearance. Stick the petals onto the calyx. For the best result dry in a former to give a cupped shape to the finished flower.
They can be fixed directly to the cake or cut out and dried off cake before fixing for an impressive 3D decoration. The variety of cutters allow you to make up sprays to suit any size of cake either as top or side decoration.
To complete a very pretty cake top decoration cut out a plaque and add to the flower. More detailed instructions and ideas can be found in Marion's brilliant books.
