Chef Palazzolo, Thank you for directing me to your forum. My question was what product do you recommend for making a mold for a glass slipper?

Welcome to my Forum Bannette - To make a of a glass slipper, you would have to make a two piece mold. You can read about this process at the following links:

It would be good if you looked over these links and then we can talk about specifics concerning the glass slipper. Also, tell me how big the slipper is that you want to make a mold over and what is it made out of.

It is made of glass and is about 5 1/2" long, 2" wide at the widest part and 3" high at the tallest part. I was wanting a mold that would be suitable for isomalt.
In the mean time I will read over the tutorials you gave me the links to.
Thank you!

Chef Dominic,
I finally got a chance to read your tutorials. I also read your article in the latest cake central magazine. You make it sound so easy. Which product do you think would work best for the glass slipper?

Hi Bannette - Here is a picture of a clay up of a shoe that Charity George made for a shoe mold she used in the ultimate cake off challenge. She used CopyFlex to make the mold. Do you see how this method resembles the tutorials on how to make a two part mold? When the mold was finished, she poured the sugar through the sole of the shoe which formed a access hole into the mold because it was flush with one of the sides of the mold box.

looks good. I think I am brave enough to try. I'll contact you later this week to place an order for CopyFlex. Thanks so much for your help. You really do make it sound easy to MYOM.

I took a class from Dominic last night and we made this shoe. It was the easiest thing I have ever seen?
It turned out perfect and very delicate looking.
Wow, people with a shoe fetish are going to go crazy when they see how easy it is to make a shoe with isomalt and Dominic's products.

Chiara - I really had fun two nights ago with you all. Now you know as much about Isomalt as I do.

Thanks for posting your comments

You are welcome. Thanks for giving us the exposure. I also enjoyed your insight into KV and I know it is only to promote the programs they run to have a villain and she plays the part very well.
see you soon,
Claire
