Was just browsing for some new cake supply stuff (yippee!!!! icon_biggrin.gif ) and came across molds for swags. Do you guys use those? Been just "free forming" mine so far, but sometimes they work well and other times they don't. Anyone got an opinion??

Don't know which mold you are looking at but I had one that wasn't very good. It was so shallow the swags had no body and would sagicon_sad.gif
All I can tell you is: the mold was white and had several other things on it like a button and 'tail' etc - details one would use to finish off w/putting several swags together. It also was a thin plastic that cracked icon_sad.gif

when you use a mold you'll use less fondant and the pieces wont be so heavy,plus the back is flat so theres more to attach to the cake. i have the one kakeladi is talking of and i will go over the drape lines with a veining tool.
