I have 2 types of lace molds.One is the styrofoam molds I bought from Caljava and has a matching metal cutter to cut the fondant the right size...The other is a hard clay mold that is indented that I bought from an Ebay seller.The clay mold almost seems that I have to roll out the fondant overtop and then use an exacto knife to trim it out?Is that correct? With the other molds do I cut the fondant out first with the cutter and then roll or press into mold?? I have spent so much money on all the cake gadgets that I would like to know how to use them properly!! I also have a Bra/Panty cake to do for the 6th of June and I want to use these lace molds!!
Any tips from avid lace mold users!!
I'm not sure how those molds are used, but I have been looking at that lace one also... Sooooo.... Bump!
There has got to be some of you that know how these work!!! HEEELLLPPPP!!
I tell you someone to ask...
cakelady48 she is the bomb with molds
WOW! that actually comes with a cutter!?
I just roll out gumpaste, dust the mold lightly with cornstarch and press the rolled out GP into the mold, and gently pull it out.
These should work the same way, you sometimes need to make the edges neat with an excto knife or a palette knife.
I'm sure there are other CCer's who use these type as well, they will be able help you better.
