Hot Air Balloons, Umbrella & Parachute Cutter Set
The Hot Air Balloons, Umbrella & Parachute set is from Marion Frost at Patchwork Cutters. It is a versatile set of cutters for your celebration cakes and cupcakes. The set includes three sizes of air balloon, one parachute, an umbrella handle, two sizes of cloud and several rain drops.
There are so many things you can do with this brilliant set. I love Marion's design for the parachuting reindeer! Just add the Christmas novelty cake cutters to your order and you could have a platoon of Christmas figures including reindeer, snowmen and father Christmas himself, parachuting in for the holidays!
I can see that I will be using this set when the Bristol Balloon festival comes around too!
Balloon range from: 40mm to 70mm
Parachute Size: 55mm
Clouds range from: 25mm to 45mm
Rain drip: 5mm
How to Use the Hot Air Balloon SetAs 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.
