I've never heard of these. They're different than the lace press molds?

It really depends on the one you are working with.
Some of them you have to roll a piece of gumpaste/fondant. Or some of them you roll thin and then press unto the impression. I think Caljava is the company that created them.. Not a 100% sure on this.

I don't have a lot of experience working with these molds but a great tip is after applying your paste (50/50 gumpaste and fondant) to the mold and pop it in the freezer for about 10 minutes and the trim comes out easily.

I have several of these molds, but not the self trimming ones. Roll your fondant thin (pasta rollers are great for this) and press into the mold. Trim the outside edge with a palette knife and run your finger around the edge pushing the fondant into the mold. This cleans up the edge. You can unmold right then or pop in the freezer for a moment or two and then unmold by peeling the mold away from the fondant. Don't forget to dust the mold first with a cornstarch poofy to help with the unmolding.

The ones that I have are not self trimming but they don't show you what the self-trimming ones look like so we're not sure how they work.
