thin spacers (I used 1.5 mm thick wooden lollipop sticks)
JEM strip cutters - no. 1 (or you can cut the strips by hand)
7 mm heart cutter (you can use a small round cutter instead)
Flower paste (gum paste):
Gel (paste) colour:
dark brown or black
Alcohol or rejuvenator (a few drops)
White vegetable fat f.ex. Trex (or corn flour)
Make a door template or use the template attached to this tutorial (adjust the size to the size of the cake). Roll the brown flower paste out. I used 1.5 mm spacers (wooden lollipop sticks). I suggest not using corn flour or icing sugar underneath - you want the paste to cling slightly to the board, so that it won't move while cutting. Place the template on the rolled out paste. Use a wheel tool to make the curved cuts.
