Hints & Tips
Always read the project sheet in full before starting your cake!
To make your own modelling paste, add a little tylo to your fondant.
Allow the modelling paste shapes to sit and firm up for a short time before attaching to your cake.
If your modelling paste is sticking to your tools or mat use your FMM Dab-a-Dust for dusting with cornflour or icing sugar.
Dust the work surface using cornflour or icing sugar. Use an FMM Dab-a-Dust for ease. Roll out your modelling paste 2-3mm thick. Place the cutter on top of your icing and apply pressure with your hand. Gently slide the cutter backwards and forwards on the work surface to produce a clean cut.
Use the 4 shapes on the other side of the cutter to decorate the animal face. Firstly decide which shape ears you would like to cut out. For the tiger, cut out 2 large oval shapes then use the outside curve of the large circle to cut each ear so that they will sit flush against the face. Attach to the face.
For the tiger’s snout, colour some icing soft peach and cut out a large circle. Use the edge of the large circle cutter to cut part of the circle away to create a pointed oval shape that can be attached neatly to the bottom of the tiger’s face. Cut out 2 inner ears using the largest oval cutter and cut in half as before. Use the outside of the large circle to cut the ears a little smaller and attach to the face.
Roll out a little black modelling paste and cut out a nose using the smallest oval cutter and 2 tiny black circles for
the eyes. For the stripes, cut out 3 shapes using the pointed ear cutter and use the outside of the circle to cut each ear into 3 strips. Attach to the face.
