trying to use them with cornstarch at bottom but getting excess fondant on sides do I need to use a scalple to get the rest off or is there an easier way?
Are you using the letter molds? I have had a very hard time using them myself. I have looked at other reviews on them and nobody seems to have a trick for using them. I would love any advice that anybody could give!
If you mean the new molds, like the pearl border or the one that looks like paisley, only put in as much fondant as you need to fill the mold, then rub over it with that pink foam pad and it will make the extra on the sides ball up and come off.
I was using them this past weekend and my MMF seemed too soft for them, so I ended up kneading in some tylose and it helped a lot.
