My husband landed a couple of good finds at one of the local thrift a few new cake pans all for just pennies! icon_wink.gif One of them is a large silicone rose shaped pan.

I've never been one for shaped/formed pans but I thought I might try it out. My question should I cover the cake? I'm guessing fondant won't work? Butter-cream might be pretty tedious? What about poured fondant? I've never tried poured fondant before but am always looking to try new things.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! icon_smile.gif Thanks much! icon_smile.gif

I would stick with rolled fondant. I have tried 2 recipes for poured fondant and both failed miserably

I think fondant would work, but i think you would have to try and create seperate petals rather than covering with one sheet

Ok, great! Thanks very much. Should I know anything special about making sure the cake comes out of this pan after it's backed? This pan is intimidating me for some reason! icon_smile.gif All those nooks and crannies!! icon_smile.gif

You just need to use plenty of cake release and make sure its right in all those nooks and crannies lol. Its basically a flexible character pan
