Instructions and Tips for Use
The embosser can be pressed directly into the soft sugarpaste to give embroidered patterns and border designs. Repeat as many times as needed to decorate the side or board.
By dipping into food colour powders these patterns can be coloured.Using the embossed lines as a guide for piping in royal icing is a very simple way of ensuring that your piped detail is consistent.
Another excellent and simple way to use them is to cut strips of Mexican paste or half and half Mexican/Sugarpaste, emboss with the lace strip embosser of your choice and then position around the cake sides for a very pretty edible ribbon. To make it even more like a true ribbon brush with lustre colour before lifting onto the cake. If set in loops and left to dry a pretty, edible ribbon bow can also be made.
