I am ordering some gumpaste this weekend and want to order some cutters to use with it. I want to try some flowers - maybe daisies? daffodils? tulips? orchids?? I have no idea about which ones are more difficult...any recommendations as to what brand of cutters? What shapes? I am totally self-taught, and want to play around. Would appreciate any advice! Thanks!!!

I love Scott Clark Woolley's cutters and veiners. He also happens to be one of the nicest men on earth! I have the stuff to make hydrangeas, peonies, ivy and leaves.


Free PDF directions he has posted on his site:

I know some have mentioned using the JEM cutters. Any fans of these out there?
What about the plunger type vs. regular metal cutters: pros and cons?

I also love Scott's cutter. I would just recommend that you buy the metal cutter whereever you get them. To start out with flowers, I would start with calla lilies and daisies. Orchids can be more complicated. Tulips aren't too bad and I haven't make a daffodil yet. Have fun!
