Tin cutters are much less expensive and because the metal's thinner and more bendable, they can be more intricately shaped than copper cutters. They will definitely rust if not properly cared for. They are sized anywhere from 1" on up. The average is about 3"-4". It will be easier to find smaller shapes in tin. (Some copper companies do sell minis but they aren't nearly as detailed.) Also, you have to be careful not to bend or "pinch" them.

It really comes down to the size and shape cutter you need. You can find both tin and copper wedding cakes, for example. IMHO, if you're going to use it a lot, buy copper. Most of us have both. Sometimes the shape you want is available in one or the other and you just have to buy whichever it is.

However, Kneadacookie is perfectly happy using templates for most of her cookies. I am neither that talented nor patient. icon_lol.gif

Hey BOB just wonder what cutters your looking for ?
post #21 of 26
I'm looking for the ornament cutters found here on these links:

http://www.sweetc.com/Cat/Set2/027.pdf

http://www.sweetc.com/Cat/Set2/026.pdf

I have two of them I bought a couple of years ago but the company has since gone out of business and I can't seem to figure out who manufactured these particular cutters. They are awesome! I like the sturdyness of them as well as the shapes. I can hardly find the shapes I like anyplace online (not like these). If anyone has a thought on who makes these or where I could get them now that SweetC is gone, I'm all ears! icon_biggrin.gif

So none of the ornaments you want are from, ( can also get at ) coppergifts.com
I see thats listed to !
I have several of their cutters and they are awesome ! Very sturdy, good size.
Do they have to be that brand?

I must have at least 1/2 of the items Kitchengifts and coppergifts.com make. They have some ornaments but not the ones I want. I can't figure out who the manufacturer is. I spent the entire day online yesterday (oh my back!! icon_rolleyes.gif ) to no avail. I've also checked a number of other sources, and again, nothing...

I wish you had mentioned which cutters before... those are made by The Copper Cookie Cutter Store in Arkansas. I have several of their cutters -- I recognized the joint/ rivets! icon_lol.gif
http://www.thecoppercookiecutterstore.com/

BTW, I am so sad SweetC is gone! It was such a great catalog. Plus, I have a $50 GC I won't be able to use now! icon_cry.gif


What is this "Dog Food" recipe? Sounds interesting.
post #26 of 26
Thanks Honey for that link -- they do have one of the ornament cutters I want! icon_biggrin.gif I miss SweetC so much... icon_cry.gif

The "dog food" recipe is this: Take a handful of potato chips, a handful of pretzels and a handful of peanuts and crush up with your hands onto a cookie sheet. Then melt some dark chocolate and pour over the crushed pretzel mixture and mix well. Spread around the sheet and let dry. Break into pieces and munch munch munch! icon_biggrin.gif This is always such a big hit (and highly addictive... don't ask me how I know that...icon_rolleyes.gificon_lol.gif) that I have to make it as I'm leaving to deliver it or it won't last two seconds in the house with me! icon_biggrin.gif
