Toba has a beautiful cameo cookie in her book and I want to try and make one. I searched high and low for a pretty cameo push mold and finally found one!!! Yeah!!!! Now, how do I use it? I want to try it with fondant. Do I need to coat it with anything before putting the fondant in it? I'm assuming the mold needs to be put in the freeze for a short while so that the fondant will come out easily? Anyone have a luck using these molds?

Sorry I haven't tried that yet, but where did you find the cameo mold. My daughter just loves cameos. Thanks.

CK Products makes a few cameo push molds..you should be able to order them from you local cake decorating store or order online:

You can coat the molds with either a little crisco or cornstarch...I don't usually put them in the freezer, I just let them set up for a few minutes and then "pry" the fondant out with a toothpick.

The ones pictured below are 1" and 1-3/4" molds!

I bought mine off ebay, not sure if it's gonna work as well as the other molds but I loved the detail and I'm gonna give it a try! http://search.ebay.com/search/search.dll?sofocus=bs&sbrftog=1&fnu=1&from=R10&satitle=polymer+cameo+mold&sacat=-1%26catref%3DC6&bs=Search&fsop=1%26fsoo%3D1&coaction=compare&copagenum=1&coentrypage=search&fgtp=&sargn=-1%26saslc%3D2&sadis=200&fpos=ZIP%2FPostal&ftrt=1&ftrv=1&saprclo=&saprchi=
