It's an interesting idea, but as I think about it, I don't think the royal would ever harden at the bottom where there's no air circulation.

I'm wondering how you would get it out of the mold without it breaking, but then again it would be pretty thick.

I say that because I pushed a little too hard on one of my birds for a Wilton class and it snapped in two. It is thinner than what you are saying for a mold. No I didn't make a backup, it was for my personal use anyway. icon_wink.gif

No.

With no air circulation, the RI doesn't dry...............it gets yucky & stinks.

Fondant and gum paste are great in candy molds, though.

what about if you put in a thin line, then let it dry, put in another thin line? kinda stacked it?? would it dry that way?

I dont know, I've never even broke down and bought a mold for gumpaste, although I'd love to. icon_smile.gif

definitely go with gumpaste/fondant!

I have had royal sit for 2 days on wax paper and the bottom wasn't dry.........imagine if it was a thick piece inside of a mold. It would NEVER dry!
