How to Use the Clematis Cutter
Emboss directly onto the cake and then paint or cut out either as one piece or by applying a little more pressure to the cutter you can cut out in several sections allowing you to build up a 3d motif. Position the spray either as a single motif for top or side decoration or fix all over the cake to give a beautiful textured design.
To make a more realistic flower cut out the large Clematis Flower and soften the petal edges. Dry in a former. Cut out the stamen strip and roll up. Fix to the centre of the flower. It looks great when used with the TRELLIS cutter!
The recommended paste to use is Mexican paste which you can make yourself or can buy either as a ready to mix powder or as ready to use paste.
