Create the perfect sports themed sugar decorations using this new tappit from FMM, featuring a football, football boot, rugby ball, football shirt and a trophy. These popular sporting icons can be used to decorate cupcakes or add to larger cakes for any sports enthusiast!
*All motifs in this tappit measure approximately 50mm.
What are Tappits?
Tappits are a handy tool for quickly (and easily!) creating fun decorations to your cakes and cupcakes. We recommend you use mexican paste (a mixture of sugarpaste & tylo powder) when using these cutters as mexican paste holds its shape and hardens faster achieving the best results.
Each individual motif can be easily removed from the tappit simply by tapping the flexible strip on a board or side of a table. Set aside for a few minutes to harden, colour as you wish and use a little edible glue if attaching to a sugarpaste covered cake.
To create these cupcakes you will need:
Tappit - Get Sporty
Mexican paste/sugarpaste & tylo powder (to create mexican paste) coloured into different colours required for your decorations
Non stick board
Non stick rolling pin
Iced cupcakes (as many as required)
1 - Knead the mexican paste briefly and roll out until it's paper thin. If your paste is sticking to the mat rub a very small amount of trex/vegetable fat onto your mat.
Tip: using trex/vegetable fat instead of icing sugar/cornflour prevents your paste from drying out too quickly.
2 - Place the tappit over the paste, positioning so that the shape is fully covered. Firmly press down on the cutter and whilst still pressing down move the tappit back and forth across your mat to cut the shape.
3 - Gently holding the paste draw the cutter away from you. Flip the tappit over and remove any access paste with a knife.
4 - Turn the tappit back round and with the end furthest away from your shape press down firmly on the mat. With the end nearest your shape pull back and ping it against your mat. This should release your shape. Continue until you have cut out your desired amount of shapes and set to one side to dry out.
5 - To add detail repeat the above but using a different colour. E.g. for the football patches roll out some red paste, cut out the shape and using a small sharp knife cut out the patches. Using a small amount of edible glue apply the patches to the dried football shape. Repeat this process for all other shapes.
