There is a series of books that goes with every set of cutter released ....You have to purchase the books to see how they are used etc..Or you can just do it yourself.The books are from the UK.Depends on the cutters you may have to pucrhase multiple books or figure out hpw to do it without..cheaper...

I have got quite a few cutters and never brought a book. All cutters come with the recipe for mexican paste and instructions. You can use flower/gumpaste as well. I have even used fondant tylose mix. The best results come from mexican paste. The art to these is to lghtly grease or dust with icing sugar before use .I wait for a little while before using them so the paste isn't too soft. Be careful not to wait too long as you will not be able to work with it either.
Look on the website as they give examples of how they can be used.

I used the patchwork cutters before, and just used them on plain fondant with no problem. I did my cake with the baby blanket around the cake and lil baby boy wrapped in a blanket with them.

Maybe they are diffent cutters tho.

I think Alan at gsa has a how to section on the site. I could be wrong. Nick Lodge has a great dvd about these cutters also. I enjoyed that dvd very much.
