Single maple leaf cutter - 45mm x 50mm
Basic instructions included
Crafty cutters are designed for use with flower paste, modelling paste, sugarpaste, sugar dough and modelling clay. DO NOT mix between edible and non-edible mediums with the same cutter.
For best results we recommend using with modelling or flower paste. Roll out the paste to around 2-4mm thick on a lightly dusted surface (using icing sugar or cornflour). For some of the more complex shapes apply a small amount of white fat to the cutter to aid in releasing the paste. Allow the paste to sit for a few moments, press the cutter down firmly and then while keeping the downward pressure wiggle the cutter in a small circle. Lift the cutter up and remove the paste from the cutter. If the paste won't fall away freely remove using a scriber needle.
Due to the manufacturing process these cutters do not have as sharp a cutting edge as some other cutters. Wiggling the cutter in a small circle while keeping downward pressure avoids frayed or burred edges.
