Has anyone had any experiences using patchwork cutters? I just bought the large and small bottle and glass... like a wine or champagne bottle with a glass . Looks like it cuts each individual piece??? Does anyone have a picture of a cake they have used these on?

any info, as usual, is appreciated!!!

I do unfortunately I'm at work and the cake is on my computer at home. Basically I cover the cake in fondant and press the cutter into it to emboss the shapes. I cut the glasses out of white gumpaste and paint the champagne using food colouring. The bottles I cut out of diffrent coloured gumpastes for each part. I use a little bit of water to stick them to the fondant using the inpressed image as guide lines. A bit like doing a jigsaw puzzle.
