Hi

So I bought this kit and frankly I'm a little disappointed. The tools are so cheap and the cutters are tiny (I guess I like larger flowers) the veiner doesnt seem to work well ithr.

To be honest I am a total newbie, but am finding it more fun to play with the gumpaste making up my own ideas at the mo.

Maybe its a matter of time - but I'm keen to know what anyone else has thought of this kit. HHave I wasyed my money??

PS in New Zealand this kit is $55 so much cheaper in US - specailly with current exchange rates.

I was a little disappointed with the kit too, but I have been able to use some of the cutters to my satisfaction. I did not use the book for instruction at all. I use my DVDs that I have bought from respected cake artists. Don't give up, just add this kit to your collection.

The tools are garbage. The cutters are useful for small flowers though. I bought the kit more than ten years ago and I still use the cutters regularly.

I have the kit as well. I find it decent enough to learn basic flowers with ... than you can move up to larger and more specific flowers. The kit is limited, but a decent enough place to start.
