I have a floral lace mold from GSA. Can someone help me use this successfully?? I tried cutting the excess away from the back of the mold but the mold is shallow so it just pulled my gumpaste right out. I am wanting the back of my lace piece flat so it will lay flat against my cake. I also tried rolling the back of it with my little rolling pin, but that didn't really work either because it wasn't staying in the mold. Should I freeze it and then try cutting it?? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks all. icon_biggrin.gif

the lace molds that i have... are two sided. is your mold only one.. in other words. i roll my medium in a pasta machine thin.. and go from there.. but if yours is only one sided.. then you would press enough fondant/g/p mixture to fill mold.. then take a sharp knife or palette knife.. start in middle of mold.. lay this on its side.. and holding medium down as you cut. cut toward the left and to the end. then back to middle and holding medium down.. cut to right and to the end.. hope i have helped you understand.. unless. i have understood your question.. go slow with this cutting motions and a sawing back and forth motion....
