JEM cutters and equipment Obsession
I’ve been cake decorating for around 35 years and have known and owned JEM products for many of those but it was not until I recently when I went to a product training day at PME Knightsbridge in the UK that I truly fell in love with these products. I would like to share my new found enthusiasm for JEM with you all by showing what I create using these products and hope that inspires you to have a go too!
So here we go, The wedding cake, which I have affectionately named JEM Obsession :) I will run through everything I used to decorate each tier/section of this cake and post a ‘how to’ in the very near future. (This is manly because I’ve not taken the picture yet of each stage in progress) If you have any questions, please, please feel free to ask and I will reply as soon as I can.

The Hydrangea cutter and blossom cutter are used here and the centres of the flowers are piped with coloured royal icing using a No.1 piping tube. The piping is done using royal icing and No.1 piping tube and just a note as to why I did this, it’s to soften the ‘edges’ and give an illusion of depth, a bit like when foliage is added to a bouquet.

This frill was created using the straight frill cutter, it had 4 layers top and bottom. The Hydrangea cutter and blossom cutter for the ‘floral’ band and the centres of the flowers are piped with coloured royal icing using a No.1 piping tube. The base boarder, see the bottom tier description.

I used the scroll cutter to create the main feature and then over piped it in royal icing using a No.1 piping tube. Just to the right of the shot is a lace applique piece made using the primrose cutter and the base boarder is a embosser/ribbon cutter finished with a piped No.1 snails trail top and bottom. Once everything was attached, piped and dry, I highlighted all the details by painting it with an edible pearl shimmer.
I hope you all like what I have amde and don’t forget, any questions, please ask :))
