I wanted to make these cupcakes for my daughter's school party but can't figure out how to do the arrows for the recycling logo. I don't think it will be as neat if I just pipe it and cutting it freehand out of fondant might make them uneven?
Is there a cutter or any other suggestion please? Thank you!!
I would definetly cut them freehanded, let them set up a little and then move to the cupcake. Somebody else might have cutters.
It looks like an arrow they have folded over. I would print out an arrow from clip art in microsoft word and use that as a stencil to cut.
You don't even need a stencil or template because it's all straight cuts...the easiest kind to do.
- Use a sharp x-acto knife and make two cuts, a "V" basically, to form the the triangular pointed part of the arrow, then cut in a little on both sides, then continue down to create the "tail"...
- Cut a separate (solo) rectangular "tail" minus the arrow...
- Lay the end of the arrow's tail on top of the beginning of the solo tail...and cut at an angle through both.
Repeat two more times.
I hope this makes sense?!
It sounds so confusing when I read it back!
thanks so much for the response!! So it looks like I will have to freehand it or trace over a printout of an arrow... thank you!
FlourPots.. your directions were clear! Not confusing at all thank you!
