Make your own gorgeous Santa sleigh gingerbread house for the festive season and fill with your favourite lollies! It’s simple 🙂

You can decorate your house with royal icing after you have glued it together, but with this set above, I decorated each piece and then glued together when all the cookies pieces were dried. I prefer to decorate each piece before gluing the house together to ensure my design is the way I want it, rather than run the risk of the RI dripping…unless it is the look you are going for.

Now you can cut whichever width chevron design you like, thick or thin, narrow or wide. Long or short. It is a double sided template. Any which way to suit your project, whether it be a cake or a cookie! It is super simple to cut out using our straight edge cutter and with a little practice on the transfer method, you will have gorgeous results every time. There are baking baking transfer methods available to transfer all the chevron stripes at a time, but I have transferred one at a time. Please also see our picture tutorial with full instructions.

(PS I transferred the last chevron, whilst looking on the side, so I see I missed lining it up a little, so make sure you work ‘front on’) PLEASE ALSO SEE OUR PICTURE TUTORIAL WITH FULL INSTRUCTIONS.

Chevron acrylic template and cutter

What a wonderful creation for wedding favours, christenings or just to impress!

I hope you all try it once you see how easy it is and I’d love you to post your creations on my FB page too 🙂 The result may look like ‘rocket science’, but it is clever and simple…I just had a play and I hope you do too. In no means is it perfect, but as a whole, the look of these biscuits is very effective and as I always say, practice makes perfect confidence.

Depending on your recipe, you will need about ‘outlining’ piping consistency royal icing (RI), paint brush, blotting cloth (I used paper towel) and a bit of water..that’s it ! See Royal Icing recipe here.

You want your RI ‘drop’ to hold it’s own shape to what you have piped, you do not want it to spread into a blob (too thin) and you do not want it to spiral out of your tip (too thick)

Using the medium acrylic scallop template for this 10″ cake was a breeze to create…and very enjoyable, not to mention creating it ombre style, made for it extra lovely.

So many gorgeous layered looks can be created with these simple, acrylic scalloped templates. 3 sizes available caters for every size cake to proportion. These are so simple to cut using a scalpel, at first I was concerned, but after cutting my first, it was super easy, with a wonderful, clean, sharp edge. TIP – when cutting your fondant, hold your scalpel more upright, than on an angle, this way you can manoeuver you blade in and out of the scallops with ease. I hope you find this tutorial informative and exciting, to create a masterpiece of your own.

FullSizeRender Now you too can create your own chevron decorated cake or cookie! A dual sided chevron acrylic template, small and large with the ability to make each chevron strip as thick or as thin as you like. Yes, that’s right 2 different chevron sizes on the same template, plus with this comes a straight edge cutter to make perfect cuts every time and the best thing is that you can make any chevron width you like, you are not limited to one thickness or size! I hope you find these instructions clear and simple enough, but as with trying any new product, it does take patience and practice. Before long you will be transferring with ease. As for now, we cannot make a perfect sharp chevron cutter, I have thought out of the box, to try providing a solution, and I think this is a pretty good one…It was new to me as a thought in Oct 2014, now a product to be mastered and executed well in Jan 2015. There are certainly other products on the market, different, but to achieve the same result, but I hope you see the ingenuity of this template and enjoy learning with me along the way.

Make your own gorgeous mini gingerbread house for the festive season or high tea! It’s simple 🙂

You can decorate your house with royal icing after you have glued it together, but with this set above, I decorated each piece and then glued together when all the cookies pieces were dried. I prefer to decorate each piece before gluing the house together to ensure my design is the way I want it, rather than run the risk of the RI dripping…unless it is for the look of snow on the roof top 🙂

About 6 months or more ago, I watched a tutorial (twice) of the amazing Paul Bradford Sugar School wiring petals making a gorgeous fantasy flower. I have used what I saw to have a play myself. I have not watched any other tutorials or spent hours on the internet looking how to make them, I watched it and and had a go at it. So, it’s not at all perfect and I’m sure others do different ways or techniques and I know there is immense room for improvement…but, we all have to start somewhere, don’t we?!

This is for those who have purchased a CutterCraft starter cupcake kit. It is a short video of how to make a few extra cute flowers using your kits, with a different technique of using the tools. I find I use this technique more and more to create more details in each flower. Now, with a few simple steps, create a gorgeous frangipani and other cute cupcake toppers in addition to all those on your DVD. Follow us on Facebook for the next DVD, intermediate level, but using the exact same tools and cutters in your kits!

This easy to make carnation, is a load of fun to make and feels very rewarding when complete. You can experiment many ways, to create it to be rough ruffled as I have done or more delicate ruffled. Add it to your cupcakes and would also make a beautiful topper for a cookie!
