I have a NASCAR type cake to do for Saturday, and originally my plan was to carve the car from cake. But I just watched a video with Susan Carberry and she molded a little car from coating chocolate with a candy mold and covered it in fondant. I love how quick and easy that seems. I was thinking about picking up a NASCAR toy car, making a mold from it, and then using the coating chocolate to make the model. Does anyone have ideas on what I can use for molding material for something like this in a pinch? I obviously don't have time to order any silicone plastique or anything from Make Your Own molds with it being due in two days. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated!

Tami utley uses a molding stuff available at Hobby Lobby. I do not remember the name of it, but she says it is fast and easy. You might check in Hobby Lobby and see what kind of Mold making material is there. I know she said it was food safe.

It is called amazing mold putty...found it at Michaels. Have not seen it at AC Moore though. It's about $20.00, but bring a coupon. The stuff is great, I made some sea shell molds and they were prefect! It dries in about 15 minutes! Good luck icon_lol.gif

Your welcome! I also googled it to see what the box looked like, so i knew what I was looking for. My first trip, I could not find it and the "workers" had no clue what I was talking about icon_wink.gif
