If anyone would be willing to help I would appreciate it greatly

I have to make 10 figures (hula girls) waist up. I have a mold but it seems no matter what I try it gets stuck or the details dont show..

How do you professionals do it??

TIA

lightly dust your mold with powdered sugar. roll a ball of fondant and push into the mold with your hand/fingers, make sure its filled completely take out and there you have it! If it's not exactly like you want it roll up and try again.

HI Kim: Try using Cornstarch in your mold first. Place the cornsarch in a dusting puff (I use a new clean knee high stocking from WalMart). Coat the mold well with the cornstarch and press in your fondant firmly. Don't leave the fondant in too long. Remove and use a dry brush to wipe away the cornstarch.

Remember, powdered sugar attracts moisture and cornstarch doesn't it dries much faster whic may be why you can't remove your pieces without separation and can't see the details. Be sure to press firmly to get all the details to show. Use a sharp pointed instrument to extract the piece from a corner of the mold. Good luck!

Had the same question - powder sugar and corn starch did not work.

the best tip - lightly spray Pam in mold, smack mold on counter and it will fall out let dry. I needed to make 25 shells and it works great. No problems

I rub my mold with crisco and then put the fondant in and let it dry and it pops right out.

I too have used PAM to spray the molds. Works like a charm!
