That is a great idea! I wonder why I couldn't have thought of something so easy and simple icon_rolleyes.gif

I thought that it looked like plastic wrap (Saran), and NOT cellophane.

It didn't cut cleanly, either. The edges were really ragged.

Cool concept, though.

Great tip, I can't WAIT to try it. Some of my fondant cutters are terrible with sticking, I REALLY hope this helps! I agree it doesn't cut completely cleanly but I'm willing to tidy it up by hand if I can get the piece at least cut out, kwim?

And I agree it looks like saran icon_smile.gif

Thanks for sharing!!

cool idea. I did notice that the edges were not clean cut and the dough looked soft if you chill dough before cutting it cuts smoother and freeze the cutout aprox 10min before baking they will bake perfect and will not bleed out I hope this help too.

Oh ya if you spray your cutters with the butter flour sprays that helps alot also

Will have to try this with fondant icon_redface.gif since I don't make cookies.

maggiev777, I agree so what if the edges need a touchup here or there ... the main thing is to get it out easier and in one piece !!!
poshcakedesigns, definitely my main use to try this technique would be for use with fondant ...
To everyone else in this thread who thanked me for the tip you are soooooo very welcome !!! icon_redface.gif

The edges were ragged because they pictures are with cookie dough. I think w/ fondant it might be better.

I usually just rub a little shortening around the cutter and it gives it a clean cut EVERY time.

You are right about the edges on that sample page they are still rough, to me it did look like Saran Wrap, cellophane is usually thicker. Or as they say collophane, LOL> I would have never thought of using Saran Wrap though, that is an interesting idea.

Thanks for the info!!!

arosstx, that's what I'm thinking. thumbs_up.gif
Roll out the fondant let it sit for a minute then proceed from there icon_razz.gif

This is my first time posting on here, just wanted to say that in England, what we would call Saran Wrap or simple plactic wrap, they call cellophane or cellowrap. So maybe the person that submitted that was English, that's why they called it cellophane. Even scotch tape they call cellotape. Just one of the many sublte differences in everyday languag.

I've always dipped the cutter in flour (for cookies) before cutting. As long as the cutter is open, no issues. I refuse to use the closed back unless it has an air hole.

leannsloan, I thank you for your tips as well ... no problem !!! thumbs_up.gif
As a matter a fact I heard of that before where you should freeze the dough prior to baking in order to prevent the cookie from spreading during baking ...
Haven't tried it yet though ... would probably try it while trying to make a cookie pop !!! icon_twisted.gif

thanks for the info, i am definately going to try it...maybe more pressure will help the edges or just cleaning them up with a spatula...thanks again love the tip...

YAYI95, I agree I think that when I do it, like you I am going to press harder and maybe even move very slightly from side to side in (ever ever so slightly) in hopes of getting a sharper edge ... icon_smile.gif
