This lovely floral side design from Marion Frost at Patchwork Cutters makes a lovely change from a ribbon round the cake.
The cutter / embosser measures 4cm x 17cm and cuts a strip of embossed ribbon that you can fix around the cake and features a beautiful floral motif which can be coloured to suit your theme.
How to Use the Floral Side Design cutter/ Embosser
Emboss directly onto the cake and then paint, or cut out and position around the cake side. Because the ends of this cutter are open it is possible to cut a length of ribbon as long as you require by carefully moving the cutter along your rolled out paste and cutting several sections end to end.
Colour with petal dusts before positioning on the cake or glue to the cake side with a little edible glue and then paint with food colour. You can even make a 3D effect by cutting some of the petals with coloured paste.
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.
