what a pretty cake!
First Impression molds has some great silicone broach molds and Elegant Lace molds has some beautiful jewelry molds made out a foam-like substance. I've made lots of edible broaches from both, they're lots of fun to make!
I saw that episode also. I watched it over and over again (recorded). He had used some type of clay to hand sculpt the broach (it was an heirloom), then he used silicon to make the mold after the clay had hardened. Then he painted it.
Unless you need a specific broach, I would order a mold from somewhere.
Another place that sells great silicone broach molds is Kathy Scott on Ebay. I have tons of her molds and they're terrific.
That is one beautiful cake!
Is that cake posted one of Ron Ben-Israel's?
bob-no. That one is by The Cake Girls.
Thank you all so much! You've given me a great jumping off place. I cannot wait to make this cake, it is just gorgeous.
Those broaches look like actual diamonds. How do they create that effect?
Bob-can you send me a link to Kathy Scott's store? I am having a tough time finding it. Thank you!
Wow I didn't even know that existed until now!. That is one beautiful cake. This is one more thing to add to my wish list of cake stuff
Summernoelle please post a picture when it's done

Thank you, Bob!
I've made my own molds of some of the jewelry I have. Michaels sells a kit where you can make a mold of baby's hands or jewelry or whatever your heart desires. The mold is flexible and also food-safe. the kit comes with two kinds of putty which you mix together to activate. It's a lot of fun- I think I'm going to try to make a mold of a bird ornament I have, and use it for a cake topper. If I remember right, the kit is around $18-$20.
That is a gorgeous cake. I can't wait to see the one you make, I know it will be even more beautiful.
