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.

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).

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?
