Evenly roll out sugarpaste or modelling paste on a non stick surface. Remember if you use modelling paste that it will dry slightly firmer than sugarpaste which is ideal for those bursting puzzle pieces for the top tier.

Press down on the cutter to cut out the Puzzle Pieces for your Puzzle Cake. They should release nice and easy.

If you have trouble getting your sugarpaste out, try dusting your cutter lightly with cornflour to stop the sugarpaste from sticking.

If you are making patterns for cake sides, cut out other colours. Using edible glue stick the shapes to the cake top or sides in the required pattern.

To create the busting star effect, use 24g silver wire. Whilst your modelling paste is still soft, dip the wire end in edible glue and thread it through the sugarpaste.

Leave your modelling paste 24 hours to dry before finishing off your puzzle cake.



When creating a bursting effect from cakes and using wires you should always use a posy pick to secure your wire in the cake to confirm with health and hygiene regulations.
