When I saw the new Fondant Ribbon Cutter, I had to dig right in and try it! There are so many things to love about it! To name a few: the new storage case, the redesigned handle, the release button.
Before experimenting with the new ribbon cutter, I familiarized myself with the updated tool. The ribbon cutter features:
- Three spacers: 1 in., 1/2 in. and 1/4 in.
- Three cutting wheels: straight, wavy, zigzag
- Two locks: ensures wheels and spacers do not shift
- Roller handle with easy button release
- Decorate Smart storage case: keeps all parts safe and secure
My first project using the ribbon cutter was Cherry Pie Cupcakes. After baking and icing the cupcakes, I stacked red candy coated chocolate pieces on top of the icing to create “cherries.” Next time, I may add red icing color to my icing to avoid having white icing peek through.
Next, I kneaded light brown fondant, and used confectioner’s sugar and a fondant roller to roll out the fondant. It was super easy to use the straight edge wheels alternating them with the 1/4” spacers, then adding the 1” spacers and putting the locking pieces in place from the ribbon cutter.
I rolled that over my fondant to create the strips needed for my lattice pie top. I laid out the strips and weaved them by alternating them. I used a cookie spatula to lift the woven top and placed that on top of the “cherries.” I then took some of the fondant and rolled out a rope, which I placed around the top of the pie. I used a fork to crimp the end of the pie crust.
Using the ribbon cutter made this project as easy as pie! Have you tried a fondant ribbon cutter?
