I have a wedding cake this weekend and am having serious difficulties perfecting the scrollwork. I did purchase the first impressions scrollwork mold, but the mold itself is much more shallow than I was expecting. I don't know how to even get the fondant to stay in it! I have tried multiple times, and then thrown it to the side in frustration. The technique for filling this mold has to be similar to that of the lace molds, but since I have never done this either, I am at a loss. Any and every bit of advice from those of you with experience with this process would be greatly appreciated.
I just don't trust my steadiness in freehanding the scrollwork. I though that this would be a much more appealing and uniform look for the cake. Please help me!!
