Flexique is an edible flexible cake decorating compound that can be used to create pliable ribbons, shoelaces, carved figure garments and cut outs. It can also be used as a protective coating for edible prints on wafer paper and icing sheets to reduce smears and tears. Since the product actually absorbs into the wafer paper, you can stretch it without tearing or breaking the coated item to give flexibility and durability. Mix with other materials to increase working time and add lasting pliability and use as a food-safe barrier when attaching non-edible decorations to cakes.
3. PME Geometric Cutters
Available in ten individual designs, PME’s range of Geometric MultiCutter sets allows you to create panels of interlocking patterns quickly and easily. Mix colours for eye-catching geometric patterns that look amazing around the sides of cakes.

10. Rainbow Dust Liquid Colour and Metallic Paint
Leopard print has always been the purrrfect pattern in the fashion industry. We like fake leopard print, but also the real thing… when still attached to the living animal. Molly Robbins has created a beautiful leopard cake achieving the print by airbrushing with Rainbow Dust Liquid Colour. Those possessing less genius (us) could use a leopard pattern stencil when airbrushing.
