Home Made Cookie Cutters

I recently won a prize of lots of wonderful sugar pastes from Sugar and Crumbs. I wanted to use them to make some wintery penguin biscuits but didn’t have any penguin shaped cutters so I made my own.

Easily make your own cookie cutters from a plastic bottle.

Here’s how to do it…
