I'm trying to copy a design for an ivory fondant wedding cake decorated with real flowers. But the detail work looks like it's done using some sort of fondant mold, using the same ivory fondant. It's very subtle but elegant at the same time. Are there special molds for this? Do I just use candy molds? I noticed some of you prefer to mix your fondant 50/50 with gumpaste. What does this achieve? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

It looks more like cutters were used to me. Maybe patchwork cutters? Mixing fondant & gumpaste 50/50 is for items that need to dry hard and fast. I don't think it would be necessary for this design. Straight fondant should work fine.

Do you have any favorite places to get patchwork cutters from? I've never used them before.

Have you tried Global Sugar Art? They are so great about shipping, etc. I have been pleased with them.

I get them locally but I would also try global sugar art. They ship very fast.

That's Ron Ben Israel...He uses real lace and passes it through a Pasta machine to achieve the look. Is done in gumpaste..
