Win a FREE Trailing Leaves Cutter Set!

Friday, July 15

Create side designs, branches or individual leaves for your cakes, cupcakes and cookies.

This original design from Stephen Benison Sugar Artistry is perfect for use with Sugar Florist Paste (SFP), sugar modelling paste and Cocoform modelling chocolate. The cutter set includes full-colour instructions on how best to use the cutter, as well as design ideas to inspire you.

How to Use the Trailing Leaves Cutter

  1. Roll out a small piece of paste into a thin sheet and allow it to relax. Lay the paste over the cutter and roll over it with a small rolling pin.
  2. Gently tap the cutter on the edge of a non-stick board and use a soft paintbrush to remove the cut-out.
  3. Place the cut-out on a foam pad and indent the leaves with the edge of a bone tool. The shape needs to be gently cupped from side to side.
  4. Place the cut-out on a sheet of kitchen paper and highlight the edges with lustre dust food colour.
  5. Brush the back of the trailing leaves with a little cooled, boiled water and attach them to the side of the cake.

Alternative Uses

Another way to use the Trailing Leaves Cutter is to make a cut down the centre, open the two sides out and secure it to the side of the cake at regular intervals, using a paper template to ensure it is evenly spaced. You can also cut out small sections of the leaves to use as an additional decorative piece.
