Clikstix Multi BUTTERFLY Shape Cutters with Ejector
This Clikstix multi Butterfly cutter set is a great product from Windsor Sugarcraft.
This brilliant Butterfly cutter set has 8 impressions of butterflies in two different sizes so you can make masses of butterflies in no time. The cutter also embosses veined detail into the wings to make them extra lifelike!
The three larger butterflies measure approximately 30mm by 25mm and the five smaller butterflies measure approximately 22mm by 12mm. The cutters can be used with Flower Paste or Mexican paste. Another tip is to allow them to dry in a folded piece of card, this will enable you to stand them onto your cake with their wings raised!
If you have ever struggled with getting paste out of your cutters this is the product for you (even if you haven't it's a great and easy cutter to use). Because each cutter has its own built in ejector you will never have to dig out those fiddly bits of paste again.
They are useful for all sorts of cake decorations and wonderful on Cupcakes!
Full Instructions for use are included in the pack.
Simply roll out your paste, cut out using the Clikstix. Take care to hold only the edges while cutting. 'Scrub' the cutter against the board a little to ensure the shapes are not stuck to the board. To emboss the shapes press down the ejector (not too hard!) Lift the cutter with the shapes still in (if one or two fall out - no problem ...it saves the ejection!) and then press down on the ejector to let the cut shapes drop out. Quick and simple but it does take a bit of practice to get your paste thickness right.
We recommend you use either SFP Flower Paste or Modelling Gum Paste as ordinary sugarpaste tends to stick. You can also use up to a 50:50 mix of gumpaste to sugarpaste.
You can also try making modelling paste yourself by adding Gum Tragacanth to Sugarpaste, kneading well and leaving airtight for a couple of hours.
