Also, since you most likely won't have the cookie cutter shape of what you want to make this is a quick tutorial on just how to make a 2D cut out of anything you want!
So here we go.. how to make a 2D character for your cake!!
* A print out (aka template) of what you want to cut
Search for recipes online or buy our fondant here.
* Small sharp knife
* KitchenAid pasta roller
* Powdered sugar
Step 1. Roll out your fondant using your pasta roller. You might prefer a certain thickness, I prefer setting 1 or 2 and also the xtra wide setting by 'backing-up' the knob (not an exact setting but works great!)
Step 2. Let your fondant 'firm' for at least 5-10 minutes. **this part only works with marshmallow or our Cake Couture fondant... commercial fondant dries out. Allowing your fondant to firm leads to very clean-cut looking pieces**
Step 3. Place your template on top of the fondant and gently cut out your print out.
Step 4. Adhere to cake using Shortening.
