I tried to make fondant buttons today by making a reverse mold out of gumpaste. Didn't work. My real button just stayed stuck in the gumpaste.
Any words of wisdom for me?
Cut out a small circle, indent the middle of it with the big end of an icing tip, then use a toothpick to make 4 (or 2, whichever you want) holes in the center. No mold needed
Thanks Texas Rose
That sounds a lot easier then what I was trying to do. Now, why didn't I think of that? LOL
I made a circle, used the handle of a tool I have then used a small (2 or 3) tip and cut the holes out. I used a larger tip to cut my circles all the same.
I used the 'wrong' end of an icing tip to cut out my circles, then I indented the middle with the end of a paintbrush, and then put my index finger in that groove and gently pinched all around the edge (this raised up the outside udge, but smoothed and flattened the centre), then I poked four holes in the middle with a toothpick.
i'm glad somebody asked this...because i've always been wanted to hear others ideas for this.
How simple! Great to know!
