My sis-n-law gave these to me with some other cutters as a Christmas gift, but I've yet to figure out how to use them. Any advice or pictures of cakes that they were used on?

These look a bit like the frill cutters I got from SugarEd (Sharon Z.). I have only used them once since I got them. Look at the Dora cake I have in my photo gallery. You can use them as borders...

I've thought about that method, but since these have such an odd shape, I'm not sure how borders would work.

Frill cutters are usually used with a ball tool and fluffed out, right? I'm just having a hard time imagining these used that way.

Here is the link to Sharon's site. The cutters I have have some weird shapes..looks to "girly" for me, but they actually look really nice. I played around with them the day I made the cake.

I love using this as borders on my boards. I used it on my competition and blue cake. It thought it gave the board a much better look.

I wonder if I could use some of my stamps to make an impression in the fondant before cutting to give kind of a lace effect that comes from the molds. I don't have any molds although I love the look of the molds.

I've also used smaller cutters and piping tips on them to make more of a lacy effect on the border.

That's beautiful! I'm anxious to experiment with them instead of them sitting in the container.

Hi, I have used both these cutters on some of my cakes. I like them very much. I made a gold gift box cake with them and the four cakes that are all together I also used them and the the wedding cake which was I made in class I also used them. You can put dagree on them or use other cutters and make them look like lace. They have many possibilities. Hope that helps

Thanks for the ideas. I think I've been thinking too deep into them instead of just using them as what they actually are -- cutters.

jjkarm-lovely cake!!!

I bet you could do a over-lay of the cutters...I'd try them out with diffrent colors (fondant).
