This Petalear does the job of a veiner, a cutter and a scribing tool all in one - detailed hydrangea petals have never been so easy to create!
Petalears are the simplest and swiftest method for forming multiple, flawless and uniform sugar flower petals.
They’re easy to use, meaning that both beginner cake decorators and professional cake decorators alike will benefit from using this time-saving solution to producing bunches of beautiful hydrangea petals.
The Petalear does all the work for you; hours of shaping, veining, scribing and clean cutting consistent petals are removed from your life with the Petalear that allows you to produce perfect petals in no time at all!
Essentially, Petalears allow you to simultaneously achieve professional looking flowers when creating your decorative sugar flower bouquets for cakes as well as maintaining productivity.
In using this particular Petalear, you’ll be able to quickly produce five delicate Hydrangea petals in delightful detail.
You could use this Petalear strip/mat to decorate cake borders and desserts for sophisticated occasions in a gorgeous, uniform design. Alternatively, embellish your lifelike sugar flower bouquets for decorating multi-tiered cakes with realistic hydrangea flower petals.
Each hydrangea flower petal cavity of this Petalear measures approximately 3.3cm (1.3”) in diameter.
The entire Petalear measures approximately L: 20cm x W: 4.9cm (7.9” x 1.9”).
You can use your Petalear with gumpaste, modelling chocolate and sugarpaste. The following is a loose guide, appropriate for sugarpaste/fondant.
Do not fill the mould to the top of the blade that rises up around the mould cavity. The mould should be filled to the top of the cavity which is level with the lip and the point where the blade starts to rise from the surface of the mould. People will naturally fill a mould to what they think is the top. If you fill to the top of the blade, the resulting piece will be too thick and not the way it was designed.
Put cornstarch (corn flour) in a nylon/musline stocking and tie shut to make what we call a pounce. Roll out fondant/sugarpaste to the appropriate thickness, dust lightly with corn flour and put the dusted side down onto the mould.
Press with the palm of your hand and use fingertips to force fondant into all the details. The blade will already start to cut the fondant. Take a light rolling pin and roll across the top of the mould.
Do not press hard; light, quick strokes work the best and enable the blade to perform perfectly! Once the fondant has been trimmed and the excess is taken away, press the fondant again real quick and then place your finger on the side of the blade and press it sideways towards the cavity, and down into the cavity. This removes any little bits of fondant flashing and makes a perfect edge.
The great quality silicone that Marvelous Moulds are known for is easy to bend whilst possessing high durability, so removing your petals will be a breeze each time.
