Hello all,
I have a silicone mold of lego mini figures. I am having a heck of a time getting them out in one piece. Is it best to use fondant or gumpaste? Do you let them dry before removing them? Any tips or advice is welcome!

use fondant with tylose added or gp. u can pop the whole thing in the freezer for 5 minutes and that will help it pop right out.

thanks...the freezer really helped! Some of their little heads still broke off, but I can stick those back on! I appreciate the quick response!

Mix fondant and Modeling Chocolate and make sure you put a lot of powder sugar so it don't stick.... or corn starch if you will be refrigerating it in the mold sugar would probably get moist. Where did you get your mold? sounds cool
