I just made a sugar mold for a cake topper, but my question is how do you cover it with fondant or can it? Do you wet it, put royal icing then fondant? thanks.
When you say sugar mold, do you mean you molded a mixture of sugar and water, like wet sand? Now you have a shape made of sugar?
Before continuing, we need to know exactly what you've got there. Because if it's really the kind of sugar mold I'm thinking it is, this is not a typical technique. Maybe we've just got our terms mixed up.
Yes, I mean the sugar mold like wet sand and put them into bowls to hold their shape. but how do I get fondant on it now?
I would brush the surface of the sugar with piping gel so the fondant has something to stick to.
This is a new technique to me. May I ask why you chose to mold sugar to be covered with fondant?
I thought it would look a lot cleaner and I can put decorations on it. Thanks, I will give piping gel a try.
I see. When I've needed a smooth surface to cover, I've molded chocolate, then covered with fondant. I used piping gel for that too.
Can't wait to see what you're making!
