I'm just starting to get into gumpaste flowers and need to buy some good equipment. I bought Wilton's kit with like 30 cutters and instruction book. These cutters s*ck, to put it gently. I want good ones and some good veiners, but the options out there are overwhelming. Is there a "best" company for cutters and veiners? Gosh, tools can get expensive, and there seem to be so many that are needed. I'm confused and overwhelmed by all of them. Any suggestions or recommendations? TIA!
I like the veiners by First Impressions and Celcakes.
Before you purchase any cutters you may want to think about how often you will be using them. You can get templates off this site and others and just cut your gumpaste with a knife. I bought too many cutters that I have only used once (some never!).
That's a good idea. For now, I really want to master roses, orchids, and hydrangeas, so I guess I could start there. I just don't know what are good ones. I was going to buy some from GSA, but there are so many different types, styles, brandes, etc. that I get confused.
You may want to contact Jennifer Dontz ( CakeBabe1@aol.com ) - she sells cutters that come with really detailed instructions. I bought her peony cutters and really like them (reasonably priced also). The issue I have with so many of the other cutters I've purchased is there are no instructions.
