Always on the lookout for new decorating tools, I came across these PME Inifinity Multicutters recently and thought I would give them a whirl. Now I do have similar cutters by a different brand. However, these are larger than the ones I have, and add to that, there are two different sizes in the packet; they were definitely worth a try. Product Care/Instructions There are no product care instructions on the packaging. However, I washed these in hot soapy water and allowed them to air dry before use. The only information listed on the front of the packaging is the name Infinity Multicutter and the word 'Thin', and then Strip Cutter & Stamp underneath. These are the thin range, as they also do another set called Thick which has wider...
I have recently started using Saracino Paste for some of my modelling work on the site and thought it would be a good idea to review it. The paste is available in numerous colours and is made in Italy. Packaging & Weight The paste is contained in a plastic bag in a clear tub. It can be re-sealed after each use to keep airtight. The above tubs are 1Kg in weight. When you remove the paste from the tub, it is covered in a plastic bag. The paste itself is a solid block, so to remove smaller chunks, I cut into it with a knife. I then re-covered the remaining paste and re-sealed it back into the tub. How to Use Once you have a smaller piece, knead and warm it between your hands, this softens the paste allowing it to become pliable...
It's always good to have an array of patterns and embossers in your decorating box, so I recently tried out these textured sheets made by the USA company Makins. They are a quick and easy way of adding patterns and textures to your cakes/cupcakes, and there are lots of designs to choose from too. Predominantly the sheets are marketed for clay. However, you can just as easily use them for cake decorating. All you have to do is wash them in soapy water, rinse them and leave them to air dry before use. As I will only be using them for food, there is no contamination with any other products. Packaging and Contents There are four textured sheets contained in the pack. These are sealed in a cellophane packet with a cardboard interior...
Here are the two-pack splat shape cutters by FMM. These are great for a multitude of projects and very easy to use. So if you're looking for a unique splash shape/paint splatter in super quick time, then it's worth checking out the following review. Product Packaging The cutters are packaged in a see-through plastic fronted cardboard box. Product Care/Instructions There are full instructions on the reverse of the packaging telling you how to use the cutters. The packaging advises you should wash them before use. (I hand washed them in hot soapy water, rinsed them, and left them to air dry. I have also washed them in the top tray of the dishwasher, and they came out fine). The cutters can be used with icing/fondant, but it does say...
I have just discovered a stencil that I purchased a while back and thought I would add it to my list of reviews. The Tim Holtz collection from Stampers Anonymous has multiple stencil designs and is based in the USA; I'm currently reviewing the Lace THS034 design that I purchased in the UK. Product Packaging The stencil is covered with a good quality cellophane sleeve and has a sturdy cardboard insert to prevent warping. Product Care/Storage There are no washing instructions on the packaging, but this is due to the stencil being geared more towards drawings and crafts. I hand washed the stencil and then dried it using kitchen towel. It's easy to store and doesn't take up much room. Quality/Colour The stencil is a bright white...
I've been looking at updating some of my shape cutters recently and came across these rectangular ones from the Decora range. There are four different sizes in the pack, and they can be used for a multitude of projects such as biscuits, cookies, and cake decorating shapes, to name but a few. Product Packaging The cookie cutters arrived in a good quality plastic box, which keeps them intact. Product Care The instructions on the packaging state that the cutters should be washed before use. It does not say whether they are dishwasher safe; however, I washed them in the dishwasher's top knife and fork drawer, and they came out fine. Quality/Colour The cutters are a bright orange colour. They're easily visible. They're made from...
This black acrylic number topper was just the ticket for my recent Harry Potter Slytherin inspired cake that I made for my daughter's birthday. I don't tend to put black decorations on my cake and usually opt for more vibrant colours; however, as the colours of the Slytherin cake were grey, green, black and brown, this topper was exactly what I needed. Product Packaging The black acrylic 16 topper came stuck to a large piece of sturdy cardboard with a label attached stating the instructions of use. Product Care The instructions state that the topper is covered in a plastic coating which should be removed. It also advises that the topper can be washed in hot soapy water but is not dishwasher safe. Plastic Coating Removal...

So I'm back trying more of the Artisan's Choice Products, only this time we're reviewing the Plain Crème Cake Mix. According to the website, you can make a whole host of items with this product, including puddings, cakes, muffins, tray bakes, and more, so with a variety of options in mind, I opted for muffins and cupcakes. As you know, I'm very thorough in product testing so let's run down our usual info of things you need to know. Packaging The product arrived in a large brown paper bag that was silver lined on the inside, keeping the plain crème mix dry. The packaging was very sturdy and did not tear.
