Does anyone know if a mold for 3d embellishments like the ones in the attached image can be purchased somewhere? I thought about making my own but most of the wooden pieces I would like to mold arent this fancy. What other types of materials besides wood can I use to mold something like this? Where do I get them from? I've seen some wood ones at micheals, lowes, and home depot but they are not quite this intricate.

The only thing that keeps me from going broke on Etsy molds is my trying to decide which ones I *won't* get.

Has anyone bought and used these? I am wondering how they are.

Wow, what a great site on etsy. This company is only 50 mi. from my home. Here is my question; what product do I use in these molds? fondant, fondant with tylose, modeling chocolate ? ? I've never worked with molds. Thanks

I bought several of MoldMuse's molds...and I highly recommend them. Not only are they very affordable but the quality is superb. And best of all the customer service is fantastic. My rose molds were packaged in a a organza bag and well packed for shipping. great people to work with

Thanks for the info. Would fondant work with the rose molds or just chocolate? If you can use fondant is it hard to get it out without damaging it?

Renee, I've used my molds with fondant, gumpaste and modeling chocolate with no problem at all. Sometimes I put the filed molds in the freezer for a few moments if my fondant, or modelling chocolate is too soft and they just pop right out. This vendor is so helpful that I suspect they will make whatever kind of mold you want. I bought the tiny roses and assorted flowers some months ago and used them on a sheet cake that the bride had ordered to suppliment her four tier cake. She worried that some guests would feel "left out" if they didn't get the "main cake" so I put a tiny flower on each of the 98 servings. I had more of the guests requesting the sheet cake just so they could have the fondant flower![/img]

Thanks so much for the info. I will definitely have to buy some.
