Instructions and Tips for Use
These fantastic cutters from Orchard are very versatile and simple to use.
Lightly dust your surface with cornstarch (cornflour) and roll out Mexican paste so thinly that you can almost see through it. Sugarpaste may also be used but the frill will hold its shape much better if you add Gum Tragacanth, our suggested ratio is 5ml (1 teaspoon) to every 250g (8oz) of sugarpaste.
Choose your frill thickness by clicking the blades into the holes at the required size. Then simply push the cutter down firmly onto the paste ensuring that you press all areas of the cutter.Lift the cutter and re-position in line with the first cut and cut again. Repeat until your frill is as long as you need.
Use a cocktail stick or one of our PME tools, such as the Ball or Dog Bone Tool and apply gentle pressure and a sideways rolling action to create a frilled edge to the paste. Frill a section at a time and keep shifting the paste to stop it from sticking until you have frilled the legnth of the frill.
Lift the cut shapes with a palette knife and fix in position with a little Squires Edible Glue.
A second frill may also be added to sit just above the first one.
You can hide the join between the frill and the cake with indents made using the smaller end of the PME Ball Tool, a crimper or piped royal icing dots.
The paste can be coloured before cutting out using Sugarflair Food Colouring Paste, painted or dusted with Sugarflair Blossom or Lustre colours.
