Instructions and Tips for Use
The main use for this double ended tool is for sugarcraft modelling.
The blade is perfect for cutting marzipan and sugarpaste without dragging. You can also use it for marking lines onto your models.
The other end has serrations marked which make perfect shells or paws. To make a shell take a small ball of paste and press the shell tool into it to make serrations. Pull back the edges and and nip the end to make a pretty scallop type shell. These can be put end to end to make a shell border without the need for piping with royal icing or buttercream.
By rolling the end more you can make paws and hands for your modelled figures which have the 'fingers marked by the markings on the shell tool.
For a very pretty border to your cakes and cupcakes press the back of the shell tool into the soft sugarpaste for a pretty shell border
A very useful tool for beach cakes or figure modelling.
