Can I use gumpaste and/or fondant in a candy mold to make shapes to put on a fondant covered cake? Need to make musical notes to go around the sides of a round cake. Planned to use an edible transfer but would prefer to cut them or mold them out of fondant. They need to be only about 2" in height and I can't do that free-hand. I've found candy molds that are the right sizes. Any suggestions??

Yes it can be doneicon_smile.gif Sometimes it's hard to remove the item w/o distorting it. Lightly coat the mold w/Crisco OR dust w/cornstarch - you'll have to try each to see what works best for you & the medium you are using.
To help w/removing make a 'glue' by mixing a tiny bit of fondant w/water and rubbing it on your finger until it is sticky then quickly touch the molded item and your finger should stick & help ease the item out.

Thanks kakeladi. You have been so helpful to me. When you say it CAN be done, would you do it that way? icon_rolleyes.gif
