I have a backpack cake due tonight. All that's left to make are about 12 zipper pulls. I've tried hand modeling (time consuming) and I've tried make- your- own- molds. I can't get the mold right. The zipper pulls have hollowed insides and the compound seeps in, etc. I can't get a good mold at all. Someone suggested a heavy jacket zipper. I did that, didn't work. Help! no time left to hand mold 12 of them. What's the best way to do this? Anyone with pictures to help a desperate mother of 7 - ( 4 with strep throat, one recovering from a tonsillectomy and one mother with a huge migraine from no sleep and who has been inhaling too much lemon extract with my silver dust!!! help--- aaarrrggghhh!)
thanks so much for any suggestions
Is it possible to just pipe them on with buttercream?
