I got one, the 6 inch EGA mold for a cake I have to do for this weekend. I was just wondering...to make it last longer, can you use Royal Icing in a mold like this and let it dry a REALLY long time? We have to travel a long way with this cake and I was thinking that candy melts or something might melt on the trip! Any suggestions would help!
you can use gumpaste
my advice is to use a gumpaste/tylose mixture, thinly pressed around the sides of the mold, therefore making the center hollow (i'm assuming it will be against the cake). the reason why i say this is that with my daughters treasure chest cake, i made a mold of a fish...i filled the whole thing with gumpaste, gave it two days to dry; it was still soft in the middle when it came time to put it on the cake, but most importantly, it was extremely heavy and kept trying to slide down the cake. looking back, i kick myself for not making it hollow, and wasting all that gumpaste!!
Would you mind telling me where you got such a mold? Thank you.
