i was watching the pastry battle last night and i have a few questions.
1. where can you buy the rubber that they use to pour their sugar into to make specific designs?
2. do they order them pre-cut or cut the designs into the rubber themselves?
3. did they make the molds that they made the dice themselves or is there somewhere you can purchase them from?
4. am i the only one that thought the young lady should have been in the top 3?

I don't know if this one is going to be on again (probably today sometime) but I know there is a Birthday Cake Challange tonight at I think 9. I don't know if it is a repeat, but I figuered you would like to know.

As far as the rubber sugar molds go, I don't know what it is or where ect but I have seen a show where they were cutting what they wanted out of the rubber. It was one solid piece that they made into what they wanted. Thats about all I know about it. LOL

Nope, you weren't the only one! My DH thought she should have won first place...we went to Las Vegas last January and she really did do a great representation of LV!

as far as molds, man, I have enough to worry about doing cakes! hahahaha! Sugar looks VERY HARD!

gardengazer, thanks for the chef rubber site. one of the questions i forgot to ask was if the clear sugar cards were decorated with a silkscreen. well, the answer is yes and they sell them on that site. they also have latex tubing, neoprene sheet rubber, sugar warming box, hand torch, blowing sugar tubes.... boy, if i only had the money........one day icon_smile.gif


bonniebakes - didn't mean to over look you. thank you also. i was just so excited to see all the sugar artistry things....please forgive me.

Hey bonniebakes,

Those candles are cute. Searched for a link on their site where I coudl make my own mold... but couldn't find... Did bookmark the site though. Those luminaries beat a regular candle for a wedding anyday.
