Metal cookie cutters can be manufactured from tin or stainless steel. Tin is a pliable metal which means more intricate, novelty shapes can be formed. When you receive your metal cookie cutters, wash them in warm soapy water, and dry them straight away. Do not put them in the dishwasher, the drying process can make them rust. If you look after your cutters, they will last for years, and be handed down so your children's children can enjoy them too. Making biscuits is a great way to get children interested in cooking, and understanding about weighing ingredients and using scales. Mini cutter sets are perfect for cutting out rolled sugar fondant and pastry, to add decorative accents to your cooking. The fondant shapes produced can be used to turn a plain cake into a work of art, at a fraction of the price of shop bought ones.
