    I need a couple of new Wilton 6 point star cookie cutters and if I buy them here they want to charge about £3 (equiv) and postage of course. I saw them for .99c on the Wilton website but they had discontinued them.

    Are there in any of the cake decorating shops.

    I want to do some yom ha'atzmaoot stuff for my younger son's college with some blue icing, bit of fund raising.

    Mirj or Chia, you remember me teapot.

    If you look up Langdon college in Manchester you'll get a good idea of where he is.

    I Can't believe its Pesach already.........far too early,

    I can look around. We have a store in the next town (sounds farther than it is) specializing in cookie cutters. However, I don't know that it would be Wilton brand. How big are these cookie cutters?

    I can get magen david cutters here but I wanted to try and get some wilton ones. The Wilton are much better in the plastic than metal

    I will try to go within the next week. What size are the Wilton? I don't know if they have more than one size. And if they do have them, how many do you want? And what is your maximum price?

    there's only 1 size, I have had one for many years but if I want to do some catering for kosher functions it will not be suitable.

    Would you believe when I bought mine they supplied them in yellow until there were complaints and they are now blue. (just some useless info)

    As I said they should only be 99c.

    I'll give you my address later and we can swop if you find something English that you might want.and you'll be doing a good deed for my son's college.

    Sorry in English a couple means 2.

    Technically, a couple means 2 in my family too. icon_lol.gif However, many people use it to mean more than one up to who knows how many. Hopefully, we'll get lucky.

    I'll take a look. I checked one baking store already but they didn't have them. I didn't expect them to but as long as I was there buying some piping tips, I thought I'd look.

    they could be sold out for the same reason as I am having trouble...............yom ha'atzmatoot, 65 its one of those memorable dates. Im old enough to remember 50 and I did a huge flag cake for my shul with a magen david in the middle, light blue with the stripes for the flag, and then on the front of the Jewish Chronicle they had a very similar cake, so I was in good company.

    Anyway how about giving Wilton a ring, I can't do that and even though Ive got a very cake decorating shop their ordering with Wilton is spasmodic, I mean they have to do a big order from the States to make it worthwhile.

    Anyway thanks for helping.

    They are likely not sold out here due to high interest but rather lack of interest.

    I stopped by the baking store and they have a ton of cookie cutters but they are all metal. The only Wilton ones are the "comfort cutters" which are metal with a bit of padding on the grip. The store did have the Jewish star in 5 sizes (2 1/4 inch up to 5 inches which I think equates to 5.5cm up to 12.5cm). Prices range from $0.99 for the smallest to $1.50 for the largest.

    I can get any of those stars or try calling Wilton. However, with seder, I may not get to it until Tuesday, at the earliest.

    its been school holiday so I havn't been on the forum either, its the plastic ones really, I think I told you I have one, but I wanted to get 2 more. I also can get the metal ones, in sets too, if you are successful with Wilton, Ill let you know my address. hope everyone had a good pesach

    I talked with Wilton customer service and both the metal and plastic Jewish star cookie cutters have been discontinued. Doesn't appear that they are even available in a set.

    However, the person did say that it was highly likely that they would be back in the fall. She did advise that the reason why there aren't really any Wilton plastic cookie cutters around right now is that they were not happy with the product as the plastic was cracking. They have been working on using a better material and any new plastic cookie cutters would be of this new material. She did say that they would be moving back to plastic cutters.

    If you're still interested in the fall, let me know and I can see if they are available. I know that won't work for now but maybe solve your problem in the future.

    thks Ducky, that is really useful, I would never have been able to get that info. Anyway I went to a big Yom Ha'hazmaoot party/sing song/ dancing/food but it was at the local orthodox shul, so my bicsuits would not be acceptable there. There is a big do at the liberal shul tonight but thats enough. So even though I got my yellow one out, I didn't use it.

    Ive started making biscuits for children for our local cafe, so its been flowers, butterflies and butterfly cakes this morning.

    I wanted the cutters for my son's college, I think I said he goes to a residentail school, having a low level of autism and even though its a frum school the people doing the cooking generally are not. So it was for the college for their cooking projects.
    wilton comments were interesting, Ive never had any problems with their plastic cutters, I have aeroplanes, a house, I find them better than the metal ones which go out of shape, I think people are not using them correctly, if they crack.
    I will always be interested even if its later in the year, make a note of it. we'll speak again and we can do some sort of swap, if there's anything English you'd like
