How would you make one? I was thinking of a fondant one to put on top. How would you make it? How thick, etc?[/code]
Don't know what size you need, but First Impressions has some pretty molds for fondant, gumpaste, or chocolate.
I'm making a groom's cake for a pastor and they want a cross on top. I bought an impression mold from first impressions (CR101) and molded my first impression yesterday. I actually molded 2 pieces and when they are completely dry, I'm going to glue them together. While it was still pliable, I inserted 2 skewers in the bottom in the bottom so that I can insert it into the cake. I'm practicing this now even though the cake isn't for a another month. If it fails, I have plenty of time to make another.
I used a 4 inch cookie cutter
works awesome and it was cheap
I cut out two pieces of GP (cause it dries quick) and put a skewer inbetween them and glued it together.
Well, I spent $29 on the impression mold and the wedding is cancelled now. They got married this weekend to get out of the family drama but I'm not making the cake that was planned. She may still have me make a small cake for an open house reception if they have one but it's still up in the air. I like the mold but I wouldn't have bought it except for this cake. Oh well, I'll try to use it some other way now.
