2. Next roll out the light pink, dark pink and red sugarpaste (about 3 – 5mm thick). Then use the pallet knife to cut out several strips of each colour. You can do them all the same width or some thinner than others but they need to be of similar thickness. Line them up closely alternating in colour.
