Patchwork Cutters CANDLES
This 2 cutter candle set from Marion Frost's Patchwork Cutters range can be used with other cutters or with your own made floral arrangements to give a lovely traditional Christmas Cake top motif.
Instructions and Tips for Use
The candles could also be cut out individual for birthday cake motifs. I particularly like using just one for a first birthday cake. The large candle cutter measures approximately 9cm x 2.8cm and the smaller cutter is a perfect size for your cake sides.
As 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.
