hmmmmm very interesting brain storm ya got going on there, I think it could work too! icon_lol.gif

Only worry is will it come out in one piece......lightly oil the pan maybe and stick it in the freezer or fridge to harden quickly.

I think you should try it and please let us know how it goes!

Are you sure the cake can't be salvaged? Sometimes we're our worst critics.

Personally, I doubt that the quick pour fondant will work well, but candy melts work great in the pans.

From Wilton:

Using inside of pan as a mold and melted candy in disposable bags, pipe candy into details of the pan. Refrigerate and unmold pieces when set.

I think that the tractor would be adorable done in colored candy melts.
