Cake Decorating Uses
- Cut out shapes from rolled fondant.
- Make an imprint on a frosted cake and decorate with colored frosting in decorating tips (gently make a mark in your icing as a great starting point for making unique designs and to match your cake to a specific theme)
- Place on an unfrosted cake and sprinkle powdered sugar inside the cookie cutter - gently lift off cake
- Lightly set cookie cutter on a frosted cake and carefully sprinkle colored sugars or chocolate sprinkles - just enough to make the design - carefully and gently remove from the cake and wait for the compliments to start!
- Cut pound cake into 1/2 inch slice and cut with cookie cutter and then ice.
- Wrap cookie cutter with aluminum foil, leaving top open and fill with cake batter to make mini cakes.
- Use to imprint fondant or Marzipan with the cookie cutters for a different look. Hearts look great imprinted in fondant.
- Cut a sponge cake or pound cake with cookies cutters to make miniature-shaped cakes and decorate them by drizzling thinned icing over the tops.
- Dip cookie cutter in Powdered Sugar to make designs on top of an unfrosted cake, such as a Chocolate Cake.
- Use the same cookie cutter in different sizes and after they are baked, stack them up using frosting between cookies to make one BIG cookie.
- Design a top for a cheesecake by gently placing a cookie cutter on top, pouring Jam around the outside of the cutter. Using a small spatula, spread the jam all around the cheesecake top while the cookie cutter is still in place. Carefully remove the cookie cutter, and a design will be left in the middle of the Jam.
- Use shapes to trace onto cardstock, cut-out, paint/color and use as stand-up characters on your frosted cakes. Great for parties to carry out a theme, such as Barnyard Animals or a Jungle party
