Hi all,
was wondering if anyone could help me, I want to find out how to achieve something similar to the borders around the bases of these cakes...

I understand Ron ben israel uses molds (which I am willing to make) but just wasn't too sure what to mold off or how to achieve a similar look with it going around the cake?
Are there maybe wood appliques I could buy to make molds off?
Any suggestions most welcome!

Thanks,
Tina =)

my first thought was just that, wood trims from home depot and make your own molds

Hi Tina,

The borders in the pictures that you provided resemble moldings that you can buy at hardware and specialty woodworking stores. It is real easy to make molds from these items and then press fondant or gumpaste in them to create cake borders. One of them looks like a picture frame which is also a great source for cake border designs. The best way to make a cake border mold is to apply a first coat with silicone spread and allow it to set for about an hour. It will be half cured after this amount of time. Then apply silicone plastique on top of the silicone spread to add bulk and strength to your mold. You can make the mold out of straight silicone plastique, but because there are so many details, it may be easier to paint Silicone Spread into the details first.

Hope This Helps,

Dominic

I know you wrote your post from awhile ago, but check out Sugar Art Molds. I've bought about 20 pieces from them.

Those cakes are beautiful. I had a hard time finding pieces that were ornate enough in my local hardware store. I bought some pieces from Sugar Art Molds at https://www.etsy.com/shop/SugarArtMolds or you can find them also at www.sugarartmolds.com

 

They have the most ornate ones I've ever seen! Some are really great for separators too. 

 

Hope that helps!
