Trumpet Gentian Wild Flower Cutter

Instructions and Tips for Use
Simply roll your icing, Flower paste or modelling paste (we recommend Sugar Florist Paste (SFP) for creating sugar flowers and foliage) onto a non-stick board and press in the cutter. A mexican hat technique will give you the trumpet shape and this can be emphasised by using flower tools such as the PME bulbous Cone tool.
Smooth the edges with a ball tool or dogbone tool to give a natural finish to the petal edges. You can also use a veiner to mark in the details. Set into a former to give the natural shape and then assemble onto the cake or insert wires for realistic sugar displays.
