Method

These borders are made with very firm noodle paste cut into shapes as required such as oblongs 4–5 cm (1½–2 in) long by 6–7 mm (¼ in) thick, which are decorated by cutting out small pieces with fancy cutters.

These shapes should be gilded with egg yolk and dried in a hot-plate or a slow oven before being stuck around the edges of the serving dish with flour paste.
