Working on your cookie cutter collection but are not sure where to start or how to grow your collections? Some cookie cutters are more useful or will prove to be more popular than the next. Listed are the top 6 cookie cutters that you should add to your collection today, starting with purse cookie cutters:
Purse Cookie Cutters
Purse cookie cutters are one of the most common yet one of the most underappreciated types of cookie cutters available on the market today. Not only do they come in a variety of different shapes and dimensions, but also the shapes which are used to create nearly all purse cookie cutterscan be re-purposed and used for other projects.
Apart from the cookie cutter’s diversity, there will also be a number of occasions when you need to cut out the shape of a purse for a cookie (or cake fondant). Bridal showers, weddings, birthdays and even baby showers (the purse can transform into a diaper bag!) can all be symbolized by the shape which a purse-shaped cookie cutter offers.
Flower Cookie Cutters
For those who are just beginning to build their cookie cutter arsenal, start off by purchasing the basic eight-leaved flower shape. Like the purse, this shape is incredibly diverse and can be used in a variety of different applications, such as clouds or even creating wavy or curly hair. For those who already have the basic flower shapes, hone in on flowers which you enjoy or which are popular choices in your area to appeal to the fortunate recipients of your cakes.
Star Shaped Cookie Cutters
The five-point star is a must have in every baker’s repertoire. Not only can this cutter proficiently cut and shape stars, but it can also be incredibly useful in the formation of perfect triangles and numerous other shapes.
Plaque Shaped Cookie Cutters
Every professional baker will have 10 or more different plaque-shaped cookie cutters in his or her drawer. These cookie cutters can be used to give finishing touches to cakes or they can create delicious cookies that clearly have a message to share.
Butterfly Shaped Cookie Cutters
Bakers will have a fun time exploring their options in this category! Butterfly cookie cutters range from being bare bones basic to incredibly ornate. The cookie cutter you choose will really depend on the type of clientele you are catering to, whether the butterfly cookie cutter can be re-purposed in any way, and if you yourself like the shape of the cookie cutter.
Easter Egg Cookie Cutters
Rounding our list of top cookie cutters is the Easter egg-shaped cutter. Oval shapes are easy to work with and can be applied in a variety of ways (i.e. creating cookie-shaped or fondant-shaped fondant flower petals). Though basic, this cutter will quickly turn into your most valued tool.
