My pastry chef wife, Christine Dahl, shapes doughs into sweet fantasies. Over the years she has collected an array of pastry cutters. Last count is some 685! You name is, she has at least two. Ovals, teardrops, plants, animals, geometrics.
I think I better call Lloyd's of London and get a cookie cutter insurance rider!
