bride wants cup cakes in ocean or beach theme.
i want to do two flip flops in sand...no problem with the sand, but does anyone know of a fast way to make the flip flop shape, about 1 inch to 1 1/2 in long. i know i can cut them individually but need to speed that up a bit. thanks,
You could try a mini cookie cutter.
I found this one its a little more expensive than I would like but if you have a cake decorating shop in you area try there.
Another company is off the beatan path. There's are a 4.5".
I made some using the wings from the wilton butterfly cookie cutter - I got the idea from someone here. If you cut the center out of the butterfly after you cut it, the wings are the perfect shape for flip flops and you get both at once.
Those are adorable.
you guys are awsome.....that is exactly what i am looking for....iis this cutter in the wilton catalog on line?
I actually got it at our super tiny Joann's. Here it is:
so sara, did you just cut that in half?
No, I made two cuts, one on the inside each edge of each wing, so essentially I cut a little strip of the "body" out of the middle of the butterfly. I also molded the edge a tiny bit with my finger after I cut it to make it a bit curved and not so straight (although they still look totally cute even if you don't do that).
Thanks for the tip. very cute! I've always wanted to make flip flops but had no idea how. thank you so much for sharing!
I loe your cupcakes! They are so cute! I'll have to find that little cookie cutter!
thanks - someone here on CC gave me the idea, so I'm happy to pass it along. Happy flip-flopping!
Anytime I need to do something like this, I buy the inexpesive wilton cutters and shape them into what I need. I think they make an oval one that would work easily. They bend easily. Does that make sense?
sara72---I had to see the citter and then the shape come! LOL I'm such a visual person.
Wow, what a great idea!
