THE 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS CUTTERS SET is a lovely set of small Christmas cutters from Marion Frost's Patchwork Cutter range.
It is a useful set of small cutters depicting the song - I'm sure you know the words... but they go from the Partridge in the Pear tree to the Drums - not forgetting the five gold rings (who ever forgets that one?). Great for details on items such as sugar place cards, plaques, muffins, cupcakes, buns and biscuits. A perfect set for a different sugar advent calendar. Each cutter measures approx 4cm. In addition to the 12 days of Christmas there is also an inscription included which reads "On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me..."
A useful and value for money set of cutters!
How to Use the Twelve Days Of Xmas Cutters
As with all Patchwork cutters these cutters are 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.
