What kind of paste were you using? Did you grease the cutter with any white fat or cornflour before cutting out? If you are using straight sugarpaste in these cutters they will rip when you take them out, and will not dry firmly, especially if you are having wet weather or its humid...

i used squires modeling paste for the frame which always sets really hard for me so im not sure what happened! i dusted a little icing sugar over the cutters first, next time i'll use some white fat thank you icon_smile.gif
