If you’ve been following along lately, you have probably noticed I’ve been talking a lot about my new line of cookie decorating products. Today, I want to take a look at my one of my favorite items, the new Shape Shifter Set, a boxed cookie cutter kit that allows you to create forty unique cookie designs with just twenty cutters!
We’ll talk a little about what’s inside, the thought process behind it, and how it will help simplify the cookie decorating process for beginner and experienced decorators alike.
If you know much about me, the idea of just twenty cutters might sound shocking. I mean, I probably own thousands! But as time went by, I noticed that I kept coming back to the same cutters over and over again. That made me think, “Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a set of updated, multi-functional cutters that came as a set?”
So, that’s what we did.
Cutters are just the beginning.
In my experience, a blank cookie can be intimidating, and the equipment required to create uniform cookies can be bulky and expensive. The Shape Shifter set has all the tools necessary to create professional looking cookies at home.
Besides cutters, this includes plastic decorating templates and recipe and instruction cards.
The plastic templates, created from a method I often use on the blog, are designed to help you “map out” the cookie design before piping, so you have lines to follow while working.
There are also recipe cards with my tried and true cookie and icing recipes,
instructions for using the templates,
and a summary of some of the best, most helpful tips on my blog.
And if you need instructions in Spanish or French, no problem! We’ve got that covered too!
If you think it couldn’t possibly get any easier, we’ve also got illustrated step-by-step instructions for each of the forty designs included in the kit.
Also included in the set are my new “edgers,” single-edged cutting tools designed to trim other cutters to create completely unique designs. If you look closely, the polar bear was created using a plaque cutter, and the owl a trimmed tulip. Neat, right?
Another feature that makes this product unique (not to mention easier to use) is color-coded instruction cards. Instructions for decorating cookies made from red cutters can be found under the red tabs, yellow under the yellow, and so on…
Gone are the days of digging through a pile of cutters looking for that certain one, now you’ve got something to make things a little easier.
As an added value, each of my specialty cutter sets (sold separately) come with two bonus templates that transform cutters from the Shape Shifter set into coordinating cookies.
You can currently purchase the Shape Shifter set from these fine retailers, or catch me on HSN (Home Shopping Network) on July 6th!
