i was wondering if i could make my own molds? i need to make some tools, like a hammer... screwdriver...etc. and i need them made by this sat. and i dont think that i can order a mold and have it be here by that time. so i was wondering if theres a way i could make my own mold for those tools. has anyone done this? i would buy some toy tools and use those for the inital mold impression... because a real hammer would probably be to big for a cake...lol. what recipe would i need to make the mold? has anyone done this before? thanks!

simple method.

gumpaste.

lightly grease surface of item and lay item on flat surface.

smoosh the gumpaste down it really well

leave to dry.

pop it out.

then can make gumpaste/fondant tools in it.

wouldn't advise chocolate.

as for one that CAN do chocolate --

whip out that % off coupon for craft store

and buy Amazing Mold putty -- food safe.

There are candy molds I found for those items also. If you've got a local store that has them, the candy mold has a hammer, pliers, and several other items. Wish I had found the mold BEFORE I fashioned my own out of fondant a few months ago.
