Does anyone know how I would be able to mold fondant or gumpaste with a chocolate mold rather than a silicone one? Is there a way? I thought I read somewhere to spray with nonstick then press in mold, but maybe I did wrong, because it didn't work. Help please! Thanks

I've done it with cornstarch. Not sure if that's the 'right' way, but it did work. It needs to get into all those nooks and crannies.

Almost anything can be used to mold fondant or gumpaste. The trick is to knead in some crisco first! Then presto, your piece will come out. Worst case scenario you might have to pry the bottom of the piece a touch with a toothpick or a sharp tool to get it started, but then it will come out. I do this all the time, using chocolate molds and other plastic items meant for chocolate or clay for fondant and gumpaste.

Good luck!

Yep you sure can! Make sure your fondant has enough Crisco kneaded into it and you cornstarch the heck out of your mold and you should be just fine. Here is a video that uses that exact technique! icon_biggrin.gif
