Hugely popular and perfect for birthday cakes, the Unicorn Cutter by Patchwork Cutters is the easy way to create amazing unicorn designs that you can customise however you like.
This magical creature can be used to decorate the tops and tiers of birthday cakes and is sure to bring a smile to the faces of your guests. It is easy to use and once turned out, your toppers can be coloured and decorated however you wish.
How to use for best results:
• Rub a little vegetable fat such as Trex onto a non-stick board and roll out your black fondant or flower paste until it is thin.
• Grease the cutter and place onto the paste, pushing into the paste firmly at the sides.
• Remove the cutter and surplus paste using a scriber or cocktail stick to remove the small pieces.
• Use a small plastic knife to remove the design onto a sponge drying pad, then leave to dry for approximately 10 minutes before moistening the back with water to attach to your cake.
You can also colour the designs by cutting them out in a base colour of sugarpaste, then brushing a little lustre dust to highlight certain areas or mixing the lustre dust with alcohol to paint on the features you desire.
As well as sugarpaste, patchwork cutters can be used for a variety of decorating mediums including flower and modelling paste marzipan and modelling chocolate. For best results when using flower/modelling paste, knead well before using the cutter.
Patchwork Cutters have always been at the forefront of the cutter market. They have been established for over 20 years, and include not only classic designs but also contemporary based, suited for both beginners and established cake designers alike.
The designs measure approximately: 3” x 3.5”.
To safeguard our staff and adhere to social distancing we have less staff currently packing in our warehouse. This means that unless you order for next day delivery, your order may not be dispatched the same day.
Our couriers tell us that they are experiencing very large delivery volumes (akin to Black Friday levels) as everyone is now restricted to shopping online.
This means you should expect around 48 hours added to standard delivery times.
90 - 98% of Next Day deliveries are arriving on time.
Our couriers are all working with reduced resources to safeguard their staff which we totally respect.
In short, please allow a little extra time to receive your order (it'll be worth it, we promise!) We're very thankful to the lovely couriers and our Warehouse Heroes working extra hard to deliver happy mail to us in these unprecedented times.
