Instructions and Tips for Use
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, dust with an edible lustre colour whilst on the board and then position on the cake.
If you cut out the motifs and leave to dry they can be used as free-standing decoration. To give a great glitzy appearance brush the dried shape with edible glue and dip into holographic dusting colours - that way they will really shine! Push wires into the paste before leaving to dry then arrange in a pick on the top of a cake for an amazing 'explosive' top 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.
