I need some advice on what to do about making snowflakes for a wedding cake. I need some big ones for the cake and also some little ones. They are attached to the sides of the cake. I can't seem to figure out how I'm going to make them. I've been unable to find a cutter of any kind that would work with fondant. Please help me.


Thanks!

You could lay down a sheet of wax paper over a snowflake template and pipe them in royal icing. Let them dry and then they should pop right off of the paper. I would recommend piping them on pretty thick because I think they are fragile. HTH!

I was going to suggest pretty much the same thing. You can also use pearl dust to make them shimmer. icon_smile.gif

check out the PME snowflake cutters. They are the plunger type that also emboss the pattern. You can find them at GSA and other places, I think the set of 3 sizes cost around $15.

Here's a link for a set of the snowflake plunger cutters from country kitchen: http://www.countrykitchensa.com/catalog/product.aspx?productId=625608

and another one for a set for larger snowflake cutters:

with these two sets of cutters, you can make @ 6 different sizes, the largest one being about 3 or 4 inches, and the smallest one from the plunger cutters being about the size of a quarter!!

If make them from Royal and dry them flat, they won't be flat on the cake.
