Christmas Lanterns CuttersThe Christmas Lanterns Cutters is from Marion Frost's Patchwork Cutters. It is a traditional style cutter comprising of 3 different sized lantern cutters complete with candles. Great for the more traditional Xmas cake motifs.
The largest lamp measures approximately 8cm x 9.5cm and is great for an individual top decoration and the smaller cutters can be used for side decorations or for part of an overall Christmas scene.
How to Use the Christmas Lanterns CuttersAs with all Patchwork cutters this is very versatile and can be used in many different ways. 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. If you cut out the motifs and leave to dry they can be used as free-standing decoration.
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.
