Icing Streamers and
I am doing a wedding cake that is
adorned with rolled fondant bows with streamers. Can you
Thank you for your e-mail
For edible ribbon insertion - use JEM
strip cutters, cut into short lengths and leave to dry over a dowel.
(Make sure you use FLOWER PASTE). These can be pushed in to a freshly
covered sugarpaste cake. For big bows cut strips out of mexican
paste (1/2 sugarpaste, 1/2 flowerpaste) and support loops with pieces
of sponge until it dry's.
For icing streamers we have an FMM
Multi Ribbon Cutter - this looks a little bit like a double ended
pastry cutter. Using mexican paste ( as described above) roll the
paste out to the required thickness and using the ribbon cutter set
at the width of ribbon required and using either the fluted edge
cutters or the plain edge cutters carefully roll the cutter along the
paste. You can then arrange the streamer on the cake with some
pieces of foam or tissue to support it while it dries. Carefully
remove the supporting tissue or foam when the paste has dried. It
may be worth a little practise run first to see how best to arrange
the streamers etc...
The FMM Multi Ribbon Cutter costs
JEM Strip Cutters cost £3.99 and
are available in varying widths
JEM Bow cutters cost £2.84 and
are available in varying sizes - please state the size of finished
bow you would like and we will send the cutter that will create the
Postage and packing would be
£2.99 within mainland UK, other destinations at cost.
Hope we were able to help.
