I bought 'endless frill cutters' in the exact pattern that I need for a wedding cake due tomorrow afternoon. I've had them for a while but stupid me, didn't try them out. Today when I attempted to practice with them, I see that not only do they have the cutting edge on the rounded, patterned side, but the straight edge side also has a cutter on it, too! So that means I'd only get about a 2 1/2 inch strip of fondant with the design I want on one side. I need about a 3 1/2 - 4 strip (this has to wrap around the cake, leaving the top with the buttercream showing).
I hope I've described this correctly. . .I don't know what to do. These cutters match the picture the bride gave me exactly. I COULD turn the cutters around, but the design then would be different; more 'pointy'.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Tell me if I need to describe the situation differently. . it's hard to explain in words!
look back a few posts, it has really good directions, be sure you grease the cuter, and remove the excess
Just try to cut the frill side without pushing the other side on the fondant.. It can be tricky but it can be done..
