Full instructions are included on the back of the packet and are visible in the product pictures on this listing.
Roll out modelling paste or flower paste 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 your required shape with the cutter section of choice.
Make sure you keep moving the paste to stop it sticking to the board.
Sharply tap the end of the strip onto your work surface - the shapes should simply drop from the cutter to the worktop. Colour with food colours to make your designs and then attach to your cake surface with edible glue.
