I'm making a replica of a porche and wanted to make the windows, headlights and windshield out of poured sugar...any suggestions on how to get the shapes? I don't have a mold. Can I make one? if so w/ what?
any hint as to how to get the curvature of the windsheild? much appreciated.
I'm afraid I can't help with how to do it, but I can give you a few pointers on what NOT to do!
I tried various methods without success for my Dad's Reliant Scimitar cake. I tried using pastry and thick card as a mould/template. I tried melting and then cutting before completely hard.
Hope someone with a bit more experience can help you with a solution!
Try asking Dominic at Make your own Molds dot com. They have a section in the forums.
Working with poured sugar is tough. I made sugar walls for my terrarium cake and it took several batches and variations of home made molds (wish I had know about Dominic's product) to get viable walls and they still didn't turn out the way I wanted. You can cut poured sugar before it hardens but this is a very very fine line and if you cut too early it will ooze, too late and it will crack.
Hmmm, reading back that wasn't very helpful was it? Sorry. Good luck!
